Back to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) is having a significant impact on every aspect of our lives.  On 17 March 2020, the Luxembourg government has declared a three-month duration of state of emergency for Luxembourg to minimise the spread of the virus, to mitigate its effects and to protect those most vulnerable in society.
