The Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce has issued its opinion on the government's recently proposed changes to the COVID-19 law.

In view of the urgency of these measures, the Chamber of Commerce limited itself to highlighting the immediate questions and remarks which arise with regard to certain provisions of the amended bill.

Concretely, the Chamber of Commerce said that it welcomes governmet efforts to simplify and unify the conditions of access to places subject to the CovidCheck regime. It also welcomed the proposal to reduce, under conditions, the isolation period for infected individuals who have been vaccinated or recovered from the virus from ten to six days.

Whilst the Chamber of Commerce praised the inclusion of a 270-day validity period for vaccination certificates, it questioned the practical implementation in the short term of this period in the application and in companies subject to the 3G (vaccinated, recovered or tested) regime in the workplace. It also wondered about the possibility of defining a 3G perimeter in the workplace without a mask and without respecting physical distances for employees and, if applicable, visitors.

Finally, the Chamber of Commerce called for an alignment of the rules applicable to vocational training under the 3G system in the workplace.
