Formerly closing time in Brussels cafes: “Back on the brakes, sorry”
All cafés in the Brussels Region closed at 11 pm yesterday evening. The earlier closing time is one of the measures to counter the increase in the number of corona infections.
Financially it is a painful matter, says the manager of café De Monk in the center of Brussels. Yesterday he had expected a lot of clients, because a number of students got their diplomas.
I saw the revelry broken a bit. We just came off a week with positive corona numbers. Now we have to put the brakes back on, which is a shame
In addition to the former closing time of cafés, it is also prohibited in Brussels to gather with more than ten people between 11 pm and 6 am. Everyone should also always have a mouth mask with them.
