The current info in the Mir is that they are opening a campus for (at least some of) the bachurim in Switzerland.
The rumor is that the owners of the Arosa Hotel have rented/given it to the Mir until Pesach.
(based on emails that they sent out + conversations with some of the magidei shiur)
Unknown to me at this time, if this is just for European bachurim, or all chutznekim.
I don't believe Americans are allowed into Switzerland, so that should be your answer

If you guys think getting in and out of Israel is a hassle, it's a piece of cake compared to some other countries (such as Australia).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Any thoughts on this?
Very likely to happen IMO. The only problem is Israel cannot maintain the current trajectory for much longer before hospitals collapse (600-900 patients in serious condition)

Is there anyone in the government who is talking about the economic destruction?

I know someone who is from Australia who got married here a few weeks ago and his parents were not allowed to leave and were unable to attend

And its official. They're allowing entry
anyone hear anything about the requirements for this? Are they free after a 2 week quarantine or are the seminaries and yeshivos going to have to operate under a capsule system like some of the Israeli yeshivos are doing? I don't think that would make for a very pleasant seminary or yeshiva experience.

Israel has 300 patients in serious condition. It dropped yesterday to under 300 bh.
