All measures currently in place to prevent the spread of the coronavirus will be extended until Tuesday 28 April. That is what Prime Minister Rutte said at a press conference after the crisis meeting between the most involved ministers.
This means that the schools will remain closed after 6 April, as will the catering industry. The urgent advice to keep a distance of 1.5 meters and to stay at home as much as possible remains in force. Contact professions, such as hairdressers and masseurs, are prohibited.
“Don’t make plans for the May holidays”
April 28 is in the middle of the May holidays, so students return to school after May 3 at the earliest. Rutte said that the motto is and will remain to stay indoors. “We want as few people as possible to travel through the country. After April 28, we will not really go back to the old situation. So do not make plans for the May holiday. “
Holiday parks and campsites are not obliged to close, but the shared toilet and shower buildings on campsites must be closed.
“We realize that we ask a lot of people, but it is really necessary.” The developments in the spread of the virus and the pressure on the IC departments do not allow any other decision, according to Rutte.
