Here are all the measures announced after this Friday’s Codeco

[ad_1]

Two weeks before spring, the heads of the country’s various governments met in Brussels this Friday at 13:00 in an advisory committee to set an early date for the transition to the “yellow code” that has been synonymous with the lifting of nearly all recent health restrictions. A press conference was held at 16:00.

Belgium will switch to code yellow from Monday, March 7th. It was also decided to end the use of masks. The mask should only be used in public transport vehicles and care units. It should not be forgotten that wearing masks at schools, train stations, metro stations or airports is not compulsory, but only in transportation. For this reason, masks continue to be mandatory in healthcare facilities and public transport. The use of the FFP2 mask continues to be recommended for vulnerable persons.

The change to the yellow code means the end of the Covid Safe Ticket (CST), which no longer needs to be displayed, as well as the Passenger Locator Form (PLF) from Monday.

From March 11, travel rules will change. Rules on entry to the country will change from 11 March, based on the finding that “the number of infections and new hospitalizations follows a steady downward trend”.

Prime Minister Alexander De Croo underlined that the “Passenger Locator Form”, the document that must be filled before crossing the border to return to Belgium, will no longer be the norm, but the exception, as well as tests and quarantines after arrival. conference.

A person with one of the Covid certificates (valid vaccination, negative test or recovery certificate) will automatically be exempted from testing or quarantine obligation except in an area with a new type of concern.

“This is the end of the federal phase of the national emergency plan,” the prime minister said. “This is an important page we have turned, a symbol of resilience and perseverance in the face of a pandemic that has given us little respite,” Alexander De Croo added.
