In the spotlight

End July, given the increase of Covid-19 contaminations, the Belgian government decided to take new and stronger measures in order to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. The asylum seekers are obviously concerned by these measures. From now on, wearing a mask is compulsory everywhere in the reception centres for both the residents (except in their own bedrooms) and the staff.

Reception centres
