The city centre of Ghent is expecting nearly 80,000 students in the coming weeks. Therefore, starting Monday 7 September, the obligation to wear a face mask will be expanded to the student district. Wearing a mask will be mandatory for everyone aged 12 years or older in the Sint-Pietersnieuwstraat – Overpoort axis and adjacent streets. On top of that, the city calls on everyone to wear a face mask in other busy areas. That way, we continue to protect ourselves and others against the virus.
