While Lara Stalder already missed the last preliminary game against Finland due to a positive Covid-test, now also Alina Müller has tested positive. Both are not in the lineup against Japan. Also, Alessia Bächler got tested for Covid-19, but she is good to go.
For Noemi Ryhner and Laura Zimmermann, the World Championship is definitely over. They both suffered injuries in the game against Finland. Ryhner (hand) flew back to Switzerland, Zimmermann (ankle) stays with the team.
