The corona virus is a mammoth tanker and you don’t just turn it around. That is the thrust of Monday night’s press conference. A considerable package of measures has been put on the table. Another major setback for the hospitality industry, but the first creative (re) actions by Rotterdam entrepreneurs have already been spotted.
The measures apply from Tuesday 29 September, 6 p.m. The new rules will apply for three weeks and then we will review how we are doing.
Measures at a glance
- Work at home, unless there is no other option. If an infection does occur, an office can be closed for up to fourteen days;
- Limit your travel. Shopping is not an outing, do it alone;
- Outdoor activities are limited to a group size of forty people, within a maximum of thirty people;
- At home you may not receive more than three guests over the age of thirteen;
- There are exceptions to group size: for example, nothing changes in education. Strictly necessary meetings for work, in the church or demonstrations are also possible;
- Transfer locations is an ugly word for places where people don’t sit still, but where people move. Think of shops, museums, libraries, amusement parks, zoos. The maximum number of thirty people does not apply there. The security regions determine in consultation how many people can enter per location;
- The retail trade is obliged to follow a door policy;
- It OMT (Outbreak Management Team) is asked for extra advice on the use of masks in supermarkets, for example;
- Supermarkets are asked to introduce a shopping hour twice a day for vulnerable groups. These are the elderly and people with health problems;
- In the catering industry, the last walk-in is at 9 pm, the doors close at 10 pm;
- Groups may not be larger than four people, unless it concerns a household. This means that a reservation at a cinema or restaurant can be made for one household or a maximum of four people, excluding children;
- Sports happens, both for professionals and amateurs, without an audience. Sports canteens close;
- Registration – as already happens in the hospitality industry – will also be mandatory for contact professions such as hairdressers and masseurs. It is being checked whether this is also an idea in other places.
Mouth masks in the public interior space
Partly on behalf of the Rotterdam-Rijnmond safety region, Femke Halsema added the following shortly after the press conference: there is an urgent recommendation to wear a face mask in all public indoor spaces. Think of the catering industry and retail trade. Entrepreneurs are even asked to make the wearing of a mouth mask mandatory and to include it in the door policy. From Wednesday it is therefore smart to have a mouth cap in your pocket as standard. All practitioners of a contact profession – such as hairdressers and physiotherapists – are also advised to start working again with a mouth mask.
Consequences for Rotterdam
The first creative actions and reactions from Rotterdam entrepreneurs have already been spotted. For example, Poing has moved its Red Room sessions to the afternoon, Bonaparte (normally a night café) now offers evening meals and Beer and specialty café Walenburg is thinking about opening the morning for ‘home’ workers.
We will of course keep an eye on the consequences of these measures for us as Rotterdammers in the coming period. Do you spot more of these kinds of initiatives or do you have something else that you would like to share, as a result of the press conference? We look forward to receiving your email [email protected].
