COVID-19 Safety Measures During the Conference

General COVID-19 measures

In Belgium, the coronavirus barometer has been lifted since 16 May 2022. As a result, there are no more restrictions. Nevertheless, we advice you to still keep in mind the following hygiene measures:

  • Wash your hands frequently
  • Stay home if you are feeling sick
  • Use a tissue, or cough and sneeze into your arm, not your hand and turn away from other people
  • Face masks are no longer mandatory in public spaces and public transport, only in hospitals, doctor’s offices and pharmacies
  • If you are medically vulnerable, please wear a face mask

Responsibility of our attendees

In order to organise a safe meeting, both organizers and participants need to assume joint responsibility to follow the safety measures.
