The Middle Class and Independent Minister, David Clarinval (MR), received what he wrote in the evening columns on Friday. The minister is proceeding on the order of priority: “It is certain that contact businesses (hairdressers, beauticians) will reopen first. This means that if the contamination curve maintains the current rate, the consultation committee of the 22nd will contact businesses. Can decide to reopen. It can be done in late January or early February. ”
Another minister is eligible: “This is not the decision that was taken. It was decided to reopen them ‘as soon as possible’. We are not particularly sure that the figures will meet expectations in two weeks. “
However, one thing is certain that driving schools will reopen from Monday. Or rather the examination center. “Hundreds of people are waiting for a driving license”, Georges Gilkinet (Ecolo), Minister of Mobility, explains. “Or to find him. To get either. But this is not strictly an innate thing. “
The Consultative Committee will meet again on 22 January and hope that it will then be possible to better assess the impact of travel returns, year-end celebrations and the reopening of schools.
