With the Lake Geneva region red-coded, Intersoc has to cancel hundreds of vacations. Intersoc is a non-profit organization that organizes holidays for the Christian Mutuality. The tourists who are currently there are allowed to continue their holiday, but upon arrival at home they are required to undergo a test and quarantine.

“We were somewhat surprised,” says Johan Swinnen, general manager Intersoc. ‘Switzerland has long been given code green. We knew there were some problems in the city, but our hotels are out there. There is no contamination in our hotels for the time being. ”

Intersoc operates two hotels in the region. These are hotels in the municipality of Leysin and the mountain village of Zinal. The holiday guests who are currently there can stay there. Back at home they have to have a mandatory test and quarantine. ‘If holidaymakers, now present, want to return home early, they can. They will be refunded the remaining days. ”

The other holidays are canceled. ‘It’s about 300 holidays in total, almost all of them are families with children. In total, this concerns almost 600 holiday guests. We will contact all affected families in the coming week. They get their money back. ”

‘Our hotels in Flims, St. Moritz and Wengen still have code green. The travel advice remains unchanged here, ‘it still sounds.
