Natasha Ehrmann asked Delano journalist Jess Bauldry about Radio Ara, covid-19 testing for travel and Belgium’s new restrictions during “The Jim Kent Show on 100,7 with Delano” on Thursday.
Radio Ara: Luxembourg community radio station Radio Ara announced its future is hanging in the balance after it was overlooked in the press aid reform. Jess examined the history of the popular station, its importance today and what the future could hold. Read the full story here.
Holiday travel tests: To add to thepre-holiday to-do list, holidaymakers visiting certain countries will have to obtain a covid-19 test no older than 48 hours to circumvent the need for quarantine. Jess explained why this is easier said than done in Luxembourg. Get the story here.
Bubble trouble: Since Wednesday, Belgium has tightened restrictions on gatherings to curb the spread of coronavirus.
