COVID-19 information

As of March 14, 2022, new governmental directives allow for an easing of health measures.

Use of a mask

As of March 14, 2022, the use of a mask is no longer mandatory, indoors or outdoors, except on public transport and in medical establishments.
Students and staff are thus no longer required to wear a mask in offices or classrooms.
Nevertheless, anyone wishing to continue wearing a mask may do so.

Vaccine pass

Regarding access to a certain number of venues and activities, the “Passe Vaccinal” requirement has been suspended. From March 14, 2022, it no longer necessary nor possible to demand the vaccine pass.

Note: the vaccine pass has not been withdrawn, simply suspended with regard to its requirement for access to activities and venues.
However, it may still be required for travel abroad.

Health measures

While the rules relative to social distancing are no longer in effect, you are still advised to apply certain recommendations:

  • Wash your hands regularly with soap or hand sanitizer.
  • Clean objects and surfaces regularly (desks, tables, door handles, etc.).
  • Air rooms on a regular basis, either naturally (doors and/or windows permanently open or for at least 10 minutes every hour) or mechanically (regulatory mechanical aeration system).

Isolation rules in the event of COVID

1. Positive with full vaccination:
Self-isolation for 7 (full) days after the date of the onset of symptoms or the date the positive test sample was taken.
Nevertheless, after 5 days, the COVID patient may end isolation on two conditions:

  • A negative result with an antigen or RT-PCR test;
  • No clinical symptoms after 48h.

If the test is positive or the patient does not take a test, the self-isolation period is maintained at 7 days.
A second test is not required on Day 7.

2. Non-vaccinated patients or patients with incomplete vaccination:
Self-isolation for 10 (full) days after the date of the onset of symptoms or the date the positive test sample was taken.
Nevertheless, after 7 days, the COVID patient may end isolation on two conditions:

  • A negative result with an antigen or RT-PCR test;
  • No clinical symptoms after 48h.

If the test is positive or the patient does not take a test, the self-isolation period is maintained at 10 days.

Rules for contact cases

1. ‘Contact cases’ with full vaccination must take an antigen or RT-PCR test as soon as they learn they are a contact case.
If the test is negative, preventive self-isolation is not required but a self-test must be taken on day 2 and day 4 following their last contact with the positive patient.
2. Non-vaccinated or incomplete vaccination ‘contact cases’ must respect a self-isolation period of 7 days as of the date of the last contact.
A negative result with a new antigen or RT-PCR test is required to end isolation.
