KHN advises mandatory masks for guests in Amsterdam hospitality | NOW


The Amsterdam department of Koninklijke Horeca Nederland (KHN) advises its members to let guests wear mouth masks inside. The chairman announced this in response to the advice of mayor Femke Halsema.

Halsema said on Tuesday that she wants mouth masks to be worn in all publicly accessible indoor spaces. This urgent advice therefore applies to shops, but also to catering establishments, museums and libraries. With this, Halsema hopes that more severe measures can be prevented.

The chairman of KHN Amsterdam, Pim Evers, understands this call. “If it helps, we support it,” he says. Visitors must then wear a mouth mask when they walk around inside, but can take it off when they are sitting at their table.

Nevertheless, Evers doubts whether catering visitors will also comply with the measure. There is no obligation, so people cannot be refused at catering establishments without masks. That is why he asks the cabinet to come up with a clearer guideline. “Choose as a country or not for masks,” he says.

In addition, he fears that the catering industry will be hit extra by the new corona measures. “The industry is still tightening the thumbscrews,” he says of the early 10 pm closing time that started on Tuesday.
