Brussels emerges from lockdown

A sense of normalcy returned to the Belgian capital on Wednesday as schools resumed lessons and public transportation services in Brussels gradually began normal operation. Around half of the city’s metro lines were operating normally Wednesday.

However, the threat level for the Brussels region will remain at the maximum level of four until November 30, while the rest of the country is on “severe” alert at level three.

In Brussels, this means an increased presence of police and armed soldiers will remain in place, and public events will still be limited.
