From 1 June, public transport in The Netherlands will run again according to the normal timetable
Travelers are then obliged to wear a mask, and a maximum of only 40 percent of the places on each bus or train may be occupied by passengers. Wearing face-masks will also be compulsory, not only travelers, but also for public transport staff.
The decision to embrace face masks has to do with the fact that it is often not possible to keep 1.5 meters away in trains and buses, reports the GIC.
Only non-medical mouth masks should be used, because ones designed to offer complete medical shielding are for healthcare workers, Prime Minister Rutte said on Wednesday evening. The masks will not be distributed: travelers will have to buy them or make them themselves.
