Call to respect social distancing in shops open to the public

In the context of the pandemic of the Coronavirus COVID-19, the Luxembourg Government informs citizens as well as businesses receiving customers from the public, that the respect of certain specific principles concerning the circulation of customers is necessary, in order to limit the spread of the virus in the population. It is thus recommended to respect the social distancing within the shops, i.e. to ensure that an interpersonal distance of 2 metres between each person, present in the respective shop, is respected. It is also advisable to regulate the entry of customers and thus limit the number of people who can access the shops at the same time.

Social distancing also applies to the area in front of the shops entrance. It is therefore recommended to keep an interpersonal distance of 2 metres.

Customers are also advised to go shopping on their own, without taking other people with them, and to keep shopping to a minimum. It is also advisable to use one shopping trolley per person (1 trolley = 1 person).
