The Swiss Ask: Can You Fondue During Carona?

As if the Carona Virus hasn’t taken enough already from us, the Swiss are worrying that it will now take their beloved fondue.

Switzerland is already in the thick of one of the worst second surges in Europe, and now scientists are suggesting that perhaps the fondue forks be put away.

It’s not that heating and eating cheese is unsafe, (the cheese reaches 80 degrees, which would likely kill any pathogenic germs) but the physical act of gathering to eat together. Yup, crowding around a fondue pot is something we’re going to have to go without for a little while longer. Thankfully, some Swiss have come up with some creative workaround, including using a fishing rod instead of a fork.

Whatever it takes, man. Fondue for one just ain’t the same. We got to get through this thing.
