The Flemish Education Minister Ben Weyts (nationalist) told VRT News that “The basic rule still applies. As long as a person is not showing any symptoms, even if they have visited a high risk area, that person will be able to go to work or school as normal”.
Only if a person displays symptoms, must he or she stay at home and contact their doctor. The doctor will follow the correct procedure.
Any schools that might be closed due to COVIT-19 will only be closed on the advice of the Care and Health Agency.
In the meantime schools will be made aware of the procedures to be followed.
