Belgium will ease Covid-19 restrictions in June

 

From June 9, bars, pubs, cinemas, and leisure centres in Belgium will be able to welcome visitors indoors, according to Belgian broadcaster VRT.

The government was meeting to consider loosening the limits placed to combat the outbreak of coronavirus, such as encouraging more people to gather indoors, allowing major summer gatherings, and allowing international travel.

 

Since the government closed shops and schools and suspended overseas travel at the start of the year, the health situation has strengthened in recent weeks.

 

Although arrivals from the EU, the Schengen region, and the EU‘s safe list are legally permitted, all countries have been color-coded to specify travel restrictions.

 

Australia, New Zealand, Rwanda, Singapore, South Korea, and Thailand are officially marked green on the EU’s safe country map. North and East Finland, as well as Trondelag, Northern Norway, are all graded as green.

Denmark, Greece, Spain, Finland, France, Iceland, Ireland, Malta, Norway, Portugal, and Slovakia are among the EU countries officially labeled orange. The rest of the world is now known as a red country.

 

If people must fly, they must fill out a “Public Health Passenger Locator Form” 48 hours before arrival and take a PCR exam, which must be negative, before leaving. Visitors may get a test warning if they are high risk and must quarantine for 10 days based on their responses to the Locator Form. They would take a Covid-19 exam on days 1 and 7 if they do. Visitors do not need to quarantine if they do not get a text message. The ECDC’s danger traffic light scheme is used to provide answers.
