Closure of hairdressers until April 5th

At the e-meeting of the Council of Ministers on Tuesday 24 March, it was decided that article 1 § 1 of the ministerial decree of 23 March 2020 would no longer make an exception for hairdressers. So far, they were allowed to remain open provided they received their customers only by appointment, one customer at a time and while respecting the instructions of social distancing as much as possible. This exception will be abolished effective midnight this evening.

The various measures taken in the fight against Covid-19 and their duration will be evaluated next Friday, 27 March, at a National Security Council enlarged to include the ministers-president. As usual, the discussions will be based on the prior recommendations of experts and scientists.
