Short Update: Brussels makes face-masks mandatory in crowded areas with police patrolling to check

FairTrialsAdmin - July 28, 2020 - COVID-19 Updates, Extended police powers, New criminal offences

Brussels has made wearing a face mask mandatory from Monday 27 July for anyone walking through the Brussels’ pedestrian zone or high street, in addition to the decision last Thursday to make face masks mandatory in bars, cafés and restaurants and in other crowded public places. 

Police and community patrols will make rounds to raise awareness on the use of face masks in those areas, and fines for failing to respect the measures will be applicable from Monday.
