Travel: the Netherlands places Brussels in code orange

The country advises against non-essential trips to the Belgian capital.

Lhe Dutch Foreign Ministry advises against unnecessary travel to Brussels due to the increase in contamination with the new coronavirus. From midnight Saturday, the Belgian capital will be placed in code orange, as is already the case for the province of Antwerp.

Code Orange means that the Dutch are recommended to only go there for essential trips and not to go there on vacation.

This new negative travel advisory will take effect from midnight on the night of Saturday to Sunday. The Dutch who would then return to the Netherlands after a stay in Brussels are invited to respect a quarantine of 14 days at home.

At the end of July, the province of Antwerp had also received a negative travel advice due to the resurgence of the coronavirus in the region.
