    Club activities have gone virtual by order of the Swiss federal government, but we hope to resume normal Stammtisch meetings in June.  A summary of the current regime can be found on this web page from the Canton of Zug.  Please consult our calendar for the latest information on club activities.  To prevent unauthorized access to virtual meetings, you may have to log in to see them.

    The Canton of Zug has established central coordination for those needing help owing to the pandemic.  For further information, please see this brochure or this article in Zug4You.

    For the latest news and authoritative information on CoViD-19, please consult the websites of the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) and the World Health Organization (WHO)COVID-19 Information for Switzerland has excellent visualizations of the latest available data for Switzerland.  A good source of visualizations of international data is Our World in Data.

    Many misconceptions about the virus and measures against it are in circulation.  Please refer to the WHO Myth-Busters page and the Wikipedia page, "Misinformation related to the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic" for details.

    Those who would like to know more about the available diagnostic technology may find this IEEE article interesting.  A major manufacturer of the mentioned PCR diagnostic equipment is right here in Canton Zug: Roche Diagnostics in Rotkreuz.  Roche also expects to have quicker and less expensive antibody tests available by the beginning of May.
