These are the new measures:
- Starting Thursday, there will now be a mandatory quarantine for anyone who has been outside of Belgium for more than 48 hours.
- There will be a mandatory test on day one and day seven of quarantine.
- Quarantine can only end if a person receives a valid negative Covid-19 test result on day seven.
- If a person tests positive on day seven, the clock resets and they have to quarantine for another seven days when you will again need to have a valid negative test.
This measure will provisionally apply until Jan. 15.
Belgium had imposed a partial travel ban on UK travelers from Dec. 23 to Dec. 31, which allowed some limited essential travel.
