Exception for thirteen cultural stages: more than 30 spectators welcome


These are De Molenberg in Delfzijl, De Klinker in Winschoten, Baron Theater in Opende, Geert Teis in Stadskanaal, Kielzog in Hoogezand, MartiniPlaza, Oosterpoort, Stadsschouwburg, Vera, Simplon, Grand Theater and Forum Groningen in the city of Groningen and Van Beresteyn in Veendam .

Not a common exception for culture

The cultural sector called on Tuesday to make an exception for the entire sector (theaters, concert halls, pop, jazz and improvisation stages, cinemas and film theaters). The Safety Region does not agree with this and opts for these thirteen.

Chairman Koen Schuiling: ‘We choose these thirteen because we can handle this. These have proven that they can keep the distance. There may be more, but we cannot take any more. So extra requests are pointless. ‘

Cinemas for the time being with thirty visitors per room

A regulation still needs to be made for cinemas, which is done by all the Safety Regions in the Safety Council. The reason is that they are often national cinema chains. Until a decision has been made, they may not admit more than thirty people per case.

For both cinemas and cultural stages, the bar closes at ten in the evening, even if the shows do not end until later.

It is up to municipalities to determine visitor numbers for museums

Museums, libraries and amusement parks have to wait longer for clarity. Each of these locations has its own maximum number of visitors that can be inside at the same time. How many these are the Safety Region leaves to the municipalities. They will use each location to see how many people can enter without jeopardizing the distance rules. They have until October 5 to determine this; in the meantime, the locations are not held to a maximum of thirty people.

Catering establishments may sometimes receive more than thirty people

Chairman Schuiling continues to offer more space to catering establishments that comply with the rules and that have several rooms in their business. If a restaurant can close off a room with its own toilet facility, it can receive thirty extra guests there.

This is a policy that the Groningen Safety Region already introduced with the first relaxation in June. Examples of a business that can have more people inside because of the different areas are Mr Mofongo, Prinsenhof and Van der Valk Hoogkerk.
