The Covid-19 infection rate has increased very fast during the last few weeks. This situation puts the healthcare system under pressure. The government, therefore, has tightened the measures to reduce the further increase in Covid-19 cases. The following measures have been introduced:


  • Everyone should stay at home as much as possible.

  • Between 17.00 and 05.00 locations must be closed and events are not permitted.

  • Everyone aged 18 and over must stay 1.5 meters away from others.

  • Essential shops, such as supermarkets and chemists, can stay open until 20.00. 

  • Essential service providers, such as notaries, lawyers, mortgage advisors, and medical health professionals, can be open for their normal opening hours.

  • Amateur sports matches and training are not permitted between 17.00 and 05.00. Professional sports matches and training and professional artistic and cultural activities are permitted, even after 17.00. No spectators or audiences.

  • Face masks while moving around and 1.5-meter distancing are required at all locations where people have assigned seats, such as restaurants, bars, cinemas, and theatres. This means fewer people can be admitted to these locations.

  • 1.5-meter distancing and face masks will be required at all locations with a continuous flow of visitors, such as trade fairs. This means fewer people can be admitted to these locations. 

  • The rules for working from home have been tightened: ‘Work from home. If this is impossible: stay 1.5 meters apart at work.’

  • Do a self-test before visiting others or receiving visitors.

Take extra care in situations where people aged 70 and over can come into contact with children aged 12 and under.
