Brussels will deploy inspectors to enforce quarantine
Tuesday, 05 January 2021
Brussels will deploy around 40 inspectors to ensure that travellers returning from a red zone are respecting the mandatory quarantine rule, Brussels Minister-President Rudi Vervoort said on Monday.
Vervoort called for strict compliance with the the measures in order to avoid an outbreak of coronavirus infections, which is why inspectors will be “on the ground checking whether the quarantines are being respected,” he told BX1.
“We are asking everyone to take responsibility,” he said, underlining a “collective effort.”
Travellers who do not respect the quarantine obligation are subject to a fine, though the aim is “to encourage compliance with the rules” rather than collect fines, Vervoort ensured.
