Hi Richard123! I get your problem. There's lots of information out there, but it's quite hard to interpret. We do our best to translate it into understandable travel advice for tourists in our initial post in this thread. The Switzerland Tourism country list, to be downloaded from this first post, is pretty straightforward; it just can't predict future options.
We too hope that there will soon be more clarity on tourism and travel possibilities. Unfortunately, there's no clear plan yet and we can't give you an (estimated) date for when traveling as a vaccinated US citizen is possible. As of last Wednesday, we do know that further relaxation of measures might follow on May 31. This would include the lifting of quarantine requirements for vaccinated travelers. I can't tell yet whether this goes for travelers from all countries, or only from countries from which travelers are allowed in anyway according to the SEM list. Of course we'll keep an eye on the news and update our information.
I do expect Switzerland to allow tourists back in as soon as they think this is safe, and announce this as soon as they have a planning. They certainly aren't forgetting about tourism from abroad or ignoring this branch, and I have good hopes that the US will be one of the first countries to be allowed back in.
Let us know if there's anything else we can help you out with!
