International tenant fund

If there is a will, there is a way to future

Update : Augustus 18, 2020

Everyone hoped that it could be announced on September 1 that the measures could be furthermore lay down, but this will (also) be canceled. “The figures give no reason to do so,” said the prime minister.

However, the quarantine period will soon be shortened, which will now be ten days instead of fourteen. In the meantime, it is being investigated whether a quarantine can be made mandatory. “With current legislation, this is already possible, together with the mayors of the security regions it is being investigated how this can be done.”

Celebrate a party at home? With a maximum of six people (not including children), give guests a permanent seat and check if everyone is free of complaints and congratulate remotely. “It doesn’t make a dinner or birthday any more fun, but it is no different,” says Rutte. “This is no time to bake sweet cookies.”

The fact that corona infections have continued to increase since the last press conference two weeks ago, which was also full of warnings, is very worrying. “If we are not careful, we will be back to square one in the foreseeable future. Back to overburdened care, back to locked up land, back to where we don’t want to be. ”

Where things go terribly wrong according to the Outbreak Management Team (OMT) are the parties in the private sphere. There people feel unjustifiably safe and there is some hugging and kissing and therefore not kept a meter and a half away, and that can be seen in the rising corona numbers. If you want to celebrate a party, rent a room, the prime minister emphasizes.

Fortunately, many people still follow the basic rules. But what is worrying is that there are also a lot of people who do not do this. This is reflected in the recent outbreaks.

The most important thing is that we all regain control of the virus. It is crucial that we keep 1.5 meters away from others and follow the ground rules. Also at home. Right at home. Take into account the number of guests that you can receive at home at 1.5 meters. Make sure your guests can adhere to hygiene measures. No hugs, no side by side on the couch. It is precisely in the home situation that many people turn out to be infected.

Finally, the adjusted measures

First, freshen up the guidelines:

You still have to keep 1.5 meter distance and you should not shake hands. You stay at home with a cold and your roommates stay home with a fever or breathlessness.

When you go outside you should avoid busy places as much as possible. In addition, you should regularly wash your hands with soap and water. You sneeze and cough in your elbow and everyone works from home as much as possible.

Which measures are adjusted?

  1. There is no longer a limit to the number of people you receive at home.
  1. Outdoors: avoid crowds and take your own responsibility. Group formation is now permitted with more than two people, if one and a half meters are kept apart.
  1. The public transport only runs for necessary journeys. In addition, it is mandatory to wear a mouth mask.
  1. Bars, restaurants and cafes can open their doors again, but under strict conditions. Reservations for a table or room are mandatory
  1. Theaters, cinemas and concert halls open their doors again, but with a maximum of thirty people per room
