The corona figures aren’t doing well in Belgium. The number of infections is rising and the Belgian security council has raised the alarm again this week. The measures are not pleasant, but necessary.
After a mouth mask obligation at the competitions last week, other rules for the events are now being adjusted as well. Local authorities are being asked to review all events on their territory and, if there is a risk, to cancel them. Due to geographical differences, this can therefore have a different outcome depending on the location of the event.
What do the changes mean concretely for the competitions:
At an event a mouth mask is still mandatory, only on horseback the wearing of a mouth mask is not mandatory.
At events, the number of participants is not limited, but the number of spectators has been halved to 100 people at indoor events and 200 people at outdoor events. At regional or municipal level, local powers may prohibit public viewing. You are expressly asked to limit your time at the competition grounds and to leave immediately after riding.
The measures take effect from Wednesday 29 July and apply for at least 4 weeks.
