For shops in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague, customers are also advised to wear masks. It is not an obligation, but retailers are allowed to ban customers who do not comply with the request.
The cabinet announced this during a press conference about the corona measures.
Senior organization KBO-PCOB is happy with the extra shopping hours for the elderly. Senior organization ANBO does not think it is such a good idea because it would lead to groups being set up against each other.
The umbrella organization CBL (supermarkets) considers it important that customization is provided. For example, some supermarkets that had an elderly hour this spring stopped doing so, because there was no need for it. According to the CBL, it is therefore important to look at what is possible per location.
Patchwork of measures
The Netherlands will not be closed yet, but entrepreneurs will have to endure it even harder, the various measures showed.
For example, only 30 people may be seated at a time in a restaurant or café and 40 people outside. Groups may not consist of more than four people, with the exception of children under 13. Moreover, the catering industry has to close at ten o’clock. There is an exception for takeaways. They must close no later than two in the morning, and alcohol can be served until ten o’clock.
In places where there is flow, such as zoos and amusement parks, there is no maximum of 30 or 40 people. Safety regions determine per location the maximum number of visitors that may be at the location at the same time. The area of the location is considered and the ability to guarantee a distance of 1.5 meters.
The cabinet is also calling on everyone to work from home again. Only work on location if there is no other option, says Prime Minister Rutte. If an employee becomes infected, the government can even close the employer’s premises for two weeks.
According to Rutte, shopping should only happen because it is necessary. Going to buy clothes with a girlfriend is therefore not an option if it is up to him. People are asked to travel as little as possible. You can go on an autumn holiday, said Rutte. “If you want to relax, you should be able to.” But once at your holiday location you stay there and you do not go ‘fun shopping’, for example.
The government’s new measures against the spread of the coronavirus are painful but necessary to contain the outbreak. This let business organizations VNO-NCW and MKB-Nederland know. “Entrepreneurs in the big cities now have to individually make the difficult decision about how to handle mouth masks and will, for example, receive complicated questions from customers about this.”
