Safety Concept COVID-19

The Swiss Society of Cardiology (SSC) and the Scientific Committee trust that the Joint Annual Congress with the Swiss Society for Cardiovascular Surgery (SSCS) and the Swiss Neurological Society can take place as planned in June 2021 in Lausanne, despite the current difficult situation.

Our highest priority is the health of the participants onsite. Therefore, we will consistently implement the protection and hygiene requirements that apply from 09-11 June 2021. For this purpose, the SSC/SSCS Joint Annual Congress will always adhere to the guidelines of the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH), the rules of the congress centre Beaulieu Lausanne and the Health Department of the Canton of Vaud. It is to be expected that wearing masks during the congress will be mandatory. With regard to catering during the congress and social events, the safety concept of the congress centre Beaulieu and of Vaud's gastronomy establishments will apply. If you feel ill or show symptoms in relation to COVID-19, we ask you to not attend the congress.

All official regulations will be available on the congress website. In addition, you will receive the latest information by e-mail before the congress.

We thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation during this extraordinary time and stay safe.
