As people continue to get vaccinated, and herd immunity develops, Belgium will be relaxing social distancing restrictions in public places from the 1st of September. This will mean there will no longer be a limit on how many people can sit on the same table at restaurants, and there will also be no fixed closing hours for both restaurants and bars. Prime Minister Alexander De Croo justified this decision by saying that higher vaccination rates “have changed the rules of the game”, whilst also encouraging those who haven’t gotten the shot, to get it soon.

However, many restrictions will still be imposed on Brussels as vaccination rates there lag behind the entire country. Read more by clicking on the source of this article here.
