People may also meet outside, but must still stay 1.5 metres apart. Enforcement action will be taken if 3 or more people are not keeping a distance of 1.5 metres. Buildings and other covered areas that are open to the public can admit up to 30 people at a time, not counting staff. Here, too, people must stay 1.5 metres apart. The possible health risks will be assessed beforehand together with the visitor. Stay at home if you have cold-like symptoms. Indoor gatherings with more than 30 people are permitted in these 2 cases only: gatherings required by law, such as parliamentary and municipal council meetings and some shareholders’ meetings, can be held online. Physical gatherings are permitted but must not exceed 100 people. Participants must stay at least 1.5 metres away from one another; gatherings necessary to ensure the continued daily operation of institutions, businesses and other organisations are permitted but must not exceed 100 people. Participants must stay at least 1.5 metres away from one another.
