Brussels Minister-President Rudi Vervoort is scheduled to discuss the latest decisions of Belgium’s Consultative Committee with the mayors of the capital region’s 19 communes and the heads of the police zones at a meeting set for Wednesday.

Speaking on Friday after the Consultative Committee session, Vervoort said next week’s meeting will look at possible Brussels-specific decisions.

Participants will likely examine the expected impact of the reopening of terraces, set for the 8th of May, and specific measures like the 10:00 curfew – at least until the 8th of May – compulsory face masks, closing all shops and stores at night, and the ban on alcohol in public places.
