‘Save The Night’ Program Collects Clubbers’ Information
In order to save the nightlife, nightclubs in Switzerland have created a Swiss Night Pass that provides contract tracing for clubbers.
The “Save The Night” program provides a card that those who frequent pubs and clubs present once they enter an establishment. The card is free to download and the hope is that it will encourage the government to allow bars and clubs to bypass current restrictions.
Those government-mandated restrictions call for a time closing of midnight – a time when many clubbers are traditionally just starting to arrive at the nightclubs – and a limit on the number of guests per venue.
The presentation of the card allows organizers to collect the contact information of all pubbers and clubbers in a secure manner. The information from the card would would be enough to prevent a new wave of infections, according to Zurich Bars and Clubs Commission.
Swiss bars and nightclubs have been closed during the coronavirus outbreak, but are being allowed to reopen June 6 under certain restrictions.
