Considering the global current situation, the Swiss government has announced, on October 28th, stricter measures in response to the rising Covid19 cases. This may potentially affect the organization of the Prix de Lausanne 2021 but it is currently too soon for us to say. The Prix de Lausanne will do a follow-up of the situation at the beginning of December.
