The Netherlands will lift almost all restrictions on coronavirus from June 26, Acting Prime Minister Mark Rutte said at a press conference on June 18, TASS quoted him as saying.
He noted that the burden on the health care system has significantly decreased due to the reduction in morbidity, therefore the European state is taking a significant step towards the complete cancellation of the introduced measures to combat infection.
“Almost everything will be allowed, provided that a distance of 1.5 meters between people is maintained,” Rutte explained. So, the restrictions on the number of guests at home are removed, the recommendation for remote work is canceled, catering establishments will be able to receive an unlimited number of visitors. From June 30, mass events are resumed, you can get to them upon presentation of a COVID-19 test or a vaccination certificate.
Wearing a mask in places where social distance is possible becomes unnecessary, the requirement applies only where it is not possible, for example, in public transport. The only measures that remain in the Netherlands are not to shake hands and stay at home with coronavirus symptoms.
