  • Stay home as much as possible. Wash your hands on a regular basis. Only go out for work (when you cannot work from home), for groceries, or to take care of others. Always keep a distance from others (at least 1.5 meters) and avoid social activities and groups of people. If you’re coughing and/or have a cold, the following already applies: stay home. If you also get a fever, everyone in the household must stay home as well from now on. People in crucial professions and vital processes are excluded from this, unless they become ill themselves.
  • All gatherings are prohibited until September 1 (instead of June 1), even with fewer than 100 people. 
  • Shops and public transport are required to take measures to ensure that people keep their distance, for example through a door policy.
  • Mayors can designate areas where group formation is prohibited. These can be parks, beaches or specific neighborhoods. For groups consisting of three people or more who do not keep a meter and a half away distance in between; the police will enforce the law. Persons in the same household, such as families and children are excluded.
  • Markets are excluded from this because they are an essential part of the food chain in some places in the country. Municipalities and market managers must however look at how they can ensure that sufficient distance is guaranteed.
  • People throughout the Netherlands are called upon to work from home as much as possible or to spread working hours.
  • For vulnerable people: (the elderly and people with a weakened immune system) avoid large groups and public transport. In general, people are urged to limit visits to vulnerable people.
  • For people working in the medical sector or in vital processes: a lot is required of you. Do not stay home until you have symptoms and a fever. If necessary, consult with your employer. And also: do not travel abroad.
  • Primary schools and daycare centers can re-open partially or completely on May 11. Secondary schools are expected to re-open on June 1st.
  • Sportclubs can partially re-open. Children up till the age of 12 can train again after April 29. Children between the age of 12 and 18 can train again after April 29 with 1,5 meter distance of each other. 
  • Cafes and restaurants remain closed till May 20. In the week before May 20 a new decision will be announced.
  • Hairdressers, nail specialists, massage therapists and other professions where contact is needed remain closed. Nursing homes will also remain closed for visitors. 
  • People working in education and childcare continue to work as they look after children from parents in crucial professions. It is not a hard requirement that both parents work in a crucial profession. If one parent carries out a crucial profession in a family, the Cabinet asks you to take care of the children within the family. If that’s not possible, you may appeal to the school and/or childcare.
  • The government wants to be able to better enforce the existing measures. That is why mayors are given the opportunity to act more quickly and easily through an emergency ordinance. Mayors can close specific locations, such as parks, beaches, and campgrounds. Fines can also be imposed.
