Halsema: ‘Wear a face mask in all public indoor areas’


Mayor Femke Halsema advises everyone to wear a face mask in all public indoor areas.

She said this tonight during a press conference in the Stopera. She asks entrepreneurs to include the face mask in the door policy. She does not oblige, due to legal risks.


The ‘urgent advice’ then applies, for example, to catering establishments and gyms. She also advises employees with contact professions to wear face masks.

According to her, Amsterdam is now in the middle of the second wave. She says she has spoken to doctors who have serious concerns, including the consequences for normal care. ‘Of course we expected autumn to be problematic. But that the second wave would arrive so quickly is worrying. ‘

According to her, the number of infections must decrease by at least forty percent. ‘If we do not achieve the desired results, more severe measures are inevitable. Only if everyone, without exception, makes an effort now and adheres to the measures can we have good hope for better times in our near future.


Her message to tourists will not change: ‘Avoid crowded places and stick to the rules that apply here.’ Halsema also says that he understands that the consequences for, for example, home workers and football fans are major.
