One regulation, for example, allows a company deemed essential for the economy to refuse or even cancel leave already granted.

After Wednesday saw the approval of nearly 20 regulations outlining the state of crisis and measures taken in the fight against Covid-19, nine more Grand-ducal regulations were validated on Friday.

One of these texts authorises an individual to travel in a vehicle whose technical inspection certificate has expired, a measure valid on Luxembourg territory until the end of the state of emergency.

Other exemptions have been made, including the periods of unemployment benefits, or the obligatory medical test for people working in nursing homes.
