Brussels will not adapt its 10:00 PM curfew on Christmas Eve, the Region’s mayors and Minister-President decided on Wednesday.
That makes the Brussels Region’s curfew on Christmas Eve two hours earlier than in the rest of the country.
Brussels decided on 10 December to extend the 10:00 PM to 6:00 AM curfew until 15 January, and announced that it would consult with the 19 municipalities before making any decisions on Christmas Eve.
A nationwide curfew from midnight to 5:00 AM was announced in October by the Consultative Committee, and Brussels (as well as Wallonia) decided to impose a more severe curfew.
Brussels has counted a total of 78,849 confirmed cases of coronavirus since the start of the pandemic, and saw an average of 151.6 new daily infections between 6 and 12 December.
That average dropped by 10% compared to the week before it, making Brussels the only region with a downward trend in new daily infections as the figure has increased for the country as a whole for the fourth day in a row.
