Among the signs of health flexibility, the government plans to remove the limit on the number of customers in shops and supermarkets. Other changes are still awaiting the sector from June 13.

With now less than 50 new covid infections detected per day, Luxembourg has deserved to loosen a few notches the health belt that has limited it for months. And if, in the measures announced Wednesday, many concerned coffee shops, the government has obviously also heard the expectations of the shopping world. Thus, if the proposals are voted as is, the limitation of one customer per 10 m2 of sales area will no longer hold from mid-June.

From June 13, all you need to do is have a QR code certifying your vaccination, cure or non-contagion to covid to benefit from more daily facilities. Especially in restaurants or during gatherings.


And what is true for small shops will be just as true in supermarkets, assured Xavier Bettel. So this is good news as the summer sales approach: consumers will no longer have to queue at the doorstep of their favorite brand.

Food consumption in shopping malls may also resume. Ditto for the station halls or the walking areas of Findel airport. After five months deprived of sandwiches and other pastries to devour while window shopping or while waiting to leave on a trip, Luxembourgers will therefore be able to drop the mask to feast.

The mask again

But be careful, indoors, the mask will still be required. An obligation to follow both in shops and in administrations, for example. “In public transport too, it will still be necessary to wear protection”, also insisted the Prime Minister. Just like the mask will not disappear from classes between now and summer vacation. On the other hand, it will no longer be necessary for schoolchildren, college and high school students during recess.
