Luxembourg’s afterhours healthcare clinics will reopen their doors on Monday 25 May.
The three out-of-hours medical centres (maisons médicales de garde) will “only accept non-covid patients, who should come alone and wear a mask,” the health ministry said on Saturday.
The clinics were temporarily closed in March when the health ministry opened “advanced care centres” to handle the surge of coronavirus cases.
Unlike the pre-pandemic procedure, when drop-ins were permitted, patients will now be required to book an appointment in advance for the out-of-hours medical centres. The ministry said that patients “need to observe the time booked”. Appointments can be made via sante.lu/mm or 20 333 111.
