Luxembourg's Government Council has approved a draft bill lifting remaining coronavirus mask mandates and isolation measures.

During a meeting on Friday, the council approved the draft bill, which seeks to modify the government's Covid law, originally brought into effect 17 July 2020 and modified on numerous occasions since.

The draft text seeks to abolish certain health measures still in effect. This includes ending the mask mandate in certain locations as well as ending isolation for individuals testing positive with Covid-19.

Hospitals and other healthcare providers will also no longer be obligated to systematically report Covid-19 cases under the proposed bill.

Regulations relating to vaccines, certificates and corresponding European regulations will remain in effect until December.

The draft bill is expected to be brought into effect on 1 April at the latest.
