    Many sports and cultural facilities will be closed in Brussels on Monday, following the decision by OCAM (Threat Assessment Coordination Body) to maintain the highest terror alert level around Brussels, and a Terror Alert Level 3 (on a scale of 1-4, low threat to high) in the rest of the country. The Ancienne Belgique, the Botanique and the Cirque Royal have announced the cancellation of all events and concerts scheduled on Monday, “to avoid any unnecessary risk,” say the three venues’ websites. The Palais 12 and Forest National revealed they had no events scheduled on Monday, so no changes were needed.

    The Atomium, Bozar and UGC and Kinepolis cinemas are also staying closed. Many museums will be closed as usual on a Monday. The Maison Maurice Béjart announced it had “temporarily closed all its installations to the public, until the threat level is lowered in Brussels.” Local sports facilities and cultural institutions will also stay closed, revealed the office of Brussels Alderman, Yvan Mayeur.

    Basic-Fit sports clubs in Brussels and surrounding area are also closed on Monday, as are three ADEPS centres in the Brussels region (Anderlecht, Auderghem et Woluwe-Saint-Pierre).
