Belgium Implements New Covid-19 Restrictions In Response To Omicron Concerns


On Sunday, Belgium imposed stringent measures designed to curb the spreading of the Coronavirus pandemic amid fears of rapid spread of the Omicron strain.

Authorities in Belgium decided not to relax current restrictions, such as working from home and mandating masks. The cinemas, theatres, and concert halls will be closed, while sports events must take place without spectators. Most Christmas markets will close early as well.

On December 22, the country’s government announced new restrictions after a meeting of a special committee.

Though 76% of the country’s population has been vaccinated and the number of new cases is declining, the authorities remain worried about the Omicron strain.
