By Thomas Ansell
As reported by the NOS, following accord in the Dutch parliament, a curfew will come into effect in the Netherlands from Saturday evening.
Everyone in the Netherlands must not be out in public between the hours of 21:00 and 04:30. Exceptions have been made for those that are out in relation to work (this requires a signed employers declaration), on the way to travel internationally, providing care; or attending an exam (these require a signed personal declaration), for example. A full list of rules is available on the Dutch government’s website.
Those that are out without good reason, or don’t have the necessary proof of their reason could be fined up to 95 euros.
All shops will close to comply with the regulation.
