As a measure against the spread of coronavirus COVID-19, Belgium shuts down open (air) markets. Including food markets.
Prime Minister Sophie Wilmès announced drastic measures during a press conference on Tuesday 17 March.
- All shops and stores who do not sell food must close.
- Bars and restaurants must remove their terraces.
- Bars and restaurants remain closed.
- You are allowed to leave your homo for groceries, to go to work, for sports outdoors (but alone or plus one).
Bottom line is: there’s no reason to travel to Belgium at this point.
