The high vaccination rate in Flanders, together with the relaxation in society at large, justify that the corona measures are also relaxing in adult education in Flanders.
The mouth mask obligation will also expire in adult education from 1 October in Flanders.
We follow the rules that apply to society at large from 1 October.
Students and staff should therefore no longer wear a mouth mask. They are nevertheless free to wear the mask. It is also advisable to still keep the 1,5 meters distance.
The disappearance of the mouth mask obligation goes hand in hand with continued attention to other precautions. In particular, adequate ventilation remains essential as a measure to prevent contamination.
The prevention service VGM of KU Leuven continues to argue for wearing a mouth mask if a 1.5 meters distance is not possible.
For contact tracing it is always advisable to sit in the same place in the classroom.
