Since December 18 all pubs, restaurants, museums, shops have all been shut down due to Omicron. Covid cases being reported per day is 60,000 which is a new record.
The Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte told a news conference that ‘the country is taking a risk’ at easing restrictions. Mark Rutte said that the new regulations will be effective until March 8.
Cafe and bars will be open until 10 pm but to enter you must show a negative covid 19 result, proof that they are vaccinated, or have recently recovered from Covid.
