On 1 August, the President of the Swiss Confederation, Simonetta Sommaruga, and the Swiss Society for Common Good (SSCG) will hold the federal celebrations on the Rütli in an unusual setting. The President of the Swiss Confederation will honour one woman and one man from each of the 26 cantons and from the "Fifth Switzerland" (Swiss citizens living abroad) for their commitment on behalf of countless people who were committed to other people and to society during the Corona period.

During the lockdown, the 54 people honoured worked in public transport, in supermarkets or pharmacies, in cantonal crisis management teams, in intensive care units in hospitals, in centres for the elderly and day-care centres for children, in the police or fire brigade, in psychological counselling or IT support for home offices, developed digital apps, disposed of rubbish or cleaned offices, gave distance learning or home schooling, delivered tons of postal parcels or distributed food to people living in poverty.
