A number of new areas in the European Union will be considered a red travel zone for Belgians from Friday, according to the latest update on the Foreign Affairs' website.
This change in status means that from Friday 11 September at 4:00 PM, non-essential travel to these areas will no longer be allowed, and being tested and quarantined upon return will be mandatory.
Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic will be considered a red zone as of Friday, as will the Swiss canton of Freiburg.
