Safety and hygiene measures in Luxembourg’s youth hostels
As the well-being and safety of our guests and staff alike continues to be of paramount importance, special protection and hygiene plans have been implemented in all nine youth hostels in order to prevent the further spread of the virus as much as possible. These measures may change depending on the decisions made by the government.
DO NOT travel if you feel unwell. Guests who arrive at the hostel and feel unwell or have a high temperature will not be accommodated. Any symptoms of illness must be reported to the hostel management immediately. The same applies to all guests who were tested positive for COVID-19 or are waiting test results.
The essential measures
The national principle of CovidCheck applies in the whole youth hostel since the 1st of November, 2021 and is applied in the public areas, in the ‘Melting Pot’ restaurant, in the conference and leisure rooms as well as during the activities and overnight stays. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate guests who are unable to provide any of the below mentioned documents after 1st of November 2021.
Children and adolescents from 12 years and above as well as adults should carry their certificate in digital form (e.g. PDF or picture on their mobile device) or in paper form. Children younger than 12 years of age do not need a certificate.
I am vaccinated:
BioNTech/Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria®) from the day of the 2nd dose. Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) from the 14th day after vaccination. In case of recovery, from the 14th day after the 1st dose (within 180 days after the positive PCR test).
I am tested:
PCR test: 72h or rapid antigen test: 48h. Rapid on-site tests are no longer allowed! Tests must be certified by an official laboratory (no self-tests).
I am recovered:
Valid from day 11 to day 180 after the positive PCR test.
It is no longer compulsory to wear mouth and nose protection in our facilities. But, if it makes you feel more secure, you may wear a mask at any moment.
However, please make sure that you wash or disinfect your hands regularly with soap and water.
