Luxembourgish authorities have taken strict measures to limit the spread of the virus in the country and launched a dedicated website. It contains a.o. information about the evolution of the crisis at national level, the contact points to turn to, the aid programmes that have been set up and the behaviour to adopt in order to limit the spread of the virus. This website (in 4 languages) and other sources of information are made available for you on the right side.

The current COVID-19 measures adopted by the Luxembourgish Parliament include: restaurants, bars and cafés can welcome the public during regular opening hours, both indoors and outdoors. Inside catering establishements and bars, the CovidCheck system is mandatory from 1 November 2021. Customers and all staff in these establishments must comply with the obligations under the system and present either a vaccination certificate, a certificate of recovery or a COVID test certificate showing a negative result. More information on the check system here. Indoor and outdoor sports facilities are open to the public and are subject to certain conditions, the same applies when entering shops.
