Try to keep a distance of 2m to others at all times. Wearing a mask is mandatory.

Previously, Reopening of construction sites (tentative date 20 April 2020)

The first phase thus covers the following activities:

Reopening of construction sites;

Businesses whose main activity is do-it-yourself;

Phase 3 – resumption of fundamental education as well as the reopening of crèches and childcare facilities (tentative date 25 May 2020)

This will be followed – in later phases – by the resumption of commercial activities and the reopening of the HORECA sector. At this stage, however, it is premature to give a detailed assessment of the lifting of restrictions in this sector. A final decision will be taken in due course by the Government Council on the basis of an analysis of the situation.

Companies, businesses and administrations are generally encouraged to continue to promote teleworking throughout the transition period out of confinement.

Up to 20 April, working from home can be imposed as a preventive measure for employees whose nature of work allows it. If employees are quarantined because they are sick or came back from an infected area or have been in direct contact with a person infected with the coronavirus, they have to produce a medical certificate. Establishments receiving the public, activities of a cultural, social, festive, sporting and recreational nature are suspended. Playgrounds are closed.

A group of people living under the same roof can also pursue outdoor leisure activities. These people in the same household do not need to distance themselves from each other. Thus, parents and children can e.g. walk around holding hands, parents can carry their child across the street. On the other hand, they must all respect the two-metre distance from people who do not live with them.
When parents are separated and have visitation and accommodation rights and alternate custody of their children, they are not bound by the travel restrictions for the public. This applies to the duration of trips from one household to another.
Owners of pets, e.g. cats, dogs, horses, can travel to ensure their well-being. Thus, when these animals are not at home, they can go to the premises to take care of them. However, here again, no gathering of people is allowed, the distance of at least 2 metres must be respected.
Establishments in the cultural, recreational and sports sectors, as well as restaurants and caf?s, are closed. The same applies to company canteens, except where an interpersonal distance of two metres is respected.
