New coronavirus COVID-19

Centre de Congrès Montreux SA, the managing company of the 2m2c, declares that it is following carefully the developments of the new coronavirus.

The safety and health of our employees, like that of the organizers and participants in the events we host, is at the heart of our concerns.

The management of CCM SA is continuously informed of the development of the situation and scrupulously complies with the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO), the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) and the cantonal health authorities. To date, there is no specific requirement from the competent authorities regarding the organization of professional, association or public events in Switzerland. If this should change, we will make every effort to instantly comply with the directives in force, and will then communicate the measures to this effect.

Governments around the world are taking appropriate steps to keep the spread of the virus under control, and to take all necessary measures to stop it, when necessary.

We should keep an eye on developments, which we will continue to do, without falling into psychosis and being alarmist without any reason.

CCM SA management widely distributes WHO recommendations to its staff on effective preventive measures to protect against coronavirus and prevent its spread:

• Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, and / or use a hydro alcoholic hand sanitizer regularly

• In case of sneezing, cover your nose and mouth with a handkerchief or bent elbow, throw the handkerchief immediately and wash your hands thoroughly afterwards

• Be careful not to touch your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands

• Avoid close contact with people with cold or flu symptoms

• Frequently clean and disinfect objects and surfaces

• Promptly consult a doctor in case of symptoms such as cough, fever or difficulty breathing.

CCM SA also supports the current "Hello with a smile" campaign, and recommends that its employees, partners, service providers and visitors refrain from shaking hands in everyday business life.
