Decision to Close Theaters in Belgium Suspended

As of December 26, the government banned all activities with a capacity of up to 200 people, regardless of indoor and outdoor venues, this included cinema, theater and concerts where the participants were not standing.

However, representatives of theater and cultural centers, who have been opposing the decision for days, appealed to the State Council, the country’s highest administrative court.

The court ruled that the government must explain the reason for its decision on theaters and cultural centers, even if the Omicron variant calls for further measures. Thus, the court suspended the government’s decision, finding it “disproportionate”.

On December 22, Belgium had toughened existing practices to keep Covid-19 cases low during the Christmas holiday period, amid concerns about the Omicron variant.

According to the data shared by the microbiologist Emmanuel Andre, who is responsible for the laboratory that monitors the distribution of variants in the country, on December 24, the share of Omicron-related cases in total cases doubled in 3 days and reached 41 percent.
