On Monday, the cabinet advised on a new package of restrictions against the spread of the corona virus, face masks only in the three major cities. In addition, retailers may refuse customers who do not wear a face mask. The Chamber considered that advice unclear and arbitrary.
Rutte agrees. That is why there is now a national, urgent advice. These are non-medical face masks, for busy, public indoor spaces, such as shops, parking garages and restaurants. The advice – no obligation, as far as Rutte is concerned – also applies to so-called contact professions such as hairdressers and physiotherapists, for both clients and contractors. The prime minister does not want to go so far as to introduce mouth masks for students in secondary schools, because students there have to keep their distance from their teacher anyway.

The cabinet has always had difficulty in relating to the use of mouth masks. Initially, the cabinet spoke of ‘false security’ through the intercession of RIVM boss Jaap van Dissel. Subsequently, mouth masks became mandatory in public transport from 1 June. From Monday, the advice applied to large cities. Now the cabinet is still giving national advice.
