However, the weather forecast for Nyon over the next few days is very good, with lots of sun and warm temperatures, so even though events have been cancelled, we can still *get out and enjoy the scenery.
The government has not yet closed down restaurants or bars but it has limited access to a maximum of 50 people at any one time.
*keep in mind, the WHO guidelines for social distancing
