The Outbreak Management Team (OMT) has advised the Dutch cabinet to open society up again until 8 PM.
This re-opening comes in light of the cultural sector opening its doors in protest against the cabinet’s lockdown restrictions.
The cabinet plans to follow the OMT’s advice, however, they are still unsure about the latest closing time being 8 PM.
There might also be exceptions to the closing time for theatres and for the public at sporting events, which may have a closing time of 10 PM.
The OMT has also stated that the re-opening of Dutch society must occur under “firm conditions.”
This means that certain coronavirus measures which were already enforced will continue to be upheld, such as using a corona pass for entry, mandatory seating in restaurants, and restrictions on the number of visitors.
More details about re-opening Dutch society will be announced during the press conference on Tuesday, January 25, at 7 PM — which DutchReview will also cover.
