the Swiss government has already stopped issuing visas to tourist from now until 15 June 2020 and all non visa tourist will also be denied entry. The Federal Council considers that all non-essential travel must be stopped to reduce the spread of the virus. Suspending the issuing of visas helps to achieve this goal.
Any foreign nationals except Liechtenstein who wish to enter Switzerland directly from a high-risk country will be refused entry. The following persons in particular are affected by the entry ban:
Persons who wish to obtain services in Switzerland;
Tourists, visitors and participants in events;
Persons who wish to come to Switzerland for medical treatment;
Persons seeking employment in Switzerland;
Persons who wish to submit an application for a residence permit.
All information on this situation and its entry restrictions are on this Federal Council's website: www.sem.admin.ch/sem/en/home/aktuell/aktuell/faq-einreiseverweigerung.html
Hope this helps more travellers to be aware of the travel ban.
