The Luxembourg Directorate of Health currently has no plans to reduce the length of time for coronavirus isolation cases.

Jean-Claude Schmit told RTL the period of isolation in Luxembourg will remain 14 days, despite the French government announcing plans to reduce this to 7 days on Monday.

Since the end of lockdown in France, quarantine for contacts has lasted 7 days, with a test on the fifth day. The shorter quarantine was implemented to help the public accept it, as infections develop within a week. A seven-day quarantine has less of an impact on social and economic matters.

These reasons have led to discussions in other countries regarding the isolation period designed for those who have come into contact with an infected person. However, Luxembourg's Directorate of Health said they would still advise people to continue exercising caution for a second week after quarantine.
