Consultative Committee for Covid-19 postponed as Belgium remains yellow

The meeting of the Consultative Committee will not go ahead on Friday, as the figures do not yet allow Belgium’s latest Covid-19 measures to be reconsidered.

The regional governments were due to reunite at the Consultative Committee to discuss the revocation of current Covid-19 measures on Friday. Since the national barometer switched to code yellow on 7 March, most measures have already been removed except for masks on public transport and in healthcare institutions.

The governments were originally meant to meet on 25 March to evaluate the situation, but the meeting was postponed to this Friday to await the evolution of the Covid-19 crisis.

Now, it has been once again postponed, the cabinet of Prime Minister Alexander De Croo confirmed to The Brussels Times.
