Safety region: ‘Possibly not everything clear before 6 p.m. on Tuesday’


Monday evening it became clear that for the next three weeks no more than thirty people may gather inside and no more than forty outside. Prime Minister Rutte was already talking about exceptions that the security regions are about.

Properties of great importance can be given exception

While Prime Minister Rutte still talked about exceptions for ‘halls of great cultural importance’, the term ‘cultural’ has now disappeared from the description. The measures still speak of exceptions for ‘buildings of great importance’. Spokesperson Hans Coenraads of the Groningen Safety Region: ‘We are now working on how to define that, what is covered. We will also coordinate this with the rest of the country. ‘

The theaters in our province are counting on the fact that they will receive such an exception and that the planned performances can continue. Their halls are also large enough for more than thirty people with a distance of five feet between visitors. For example, 280 people entered the main hall of De Oosterpoort in recent weeks. Yet they too have to wait and see what the Groningen Safety Region will decide.

It may well be that settings will be added or canceled in the coming weeks

The second exception applies to what Rutte calls transfer locations; places where people are not together for long periods of time. This includes, for example, museums, libraries and amusement parks. The safety region must determine individually how many people are allowed in for all those places in the province. That number depends on the area of ​​the location and can guarantee the five-foot distance.

All in all, the question is whether it will be possible to assess all organizations and institutions that want to let more than thirty people in on Tuesday. ‘It may well be that institutions will be added or canceled in the coming weeks.’

What does Groningen want with the catering industry?

Chairman Koen Schuiling of the Groningen Safety Region told the Dagblad van het Noorden on Monday evening that he actually wanted to be more lenient with some catering establishments. If you follow the rules properly, you can potentially receive more than thirty guests. According to spokesman Coenraads, it is no different from what is already being done in Groningen:

‘We want to see whether certain things can be divided into compartments.’ A catering business that can close off a certain space and has separate toilet facilities for that space, could possibly accommodate two times thirty people. “When the easing of 1 June came into effect, we already looked at that.”
