The Dutch National Institute for Public Health (RIVM) reported this Wednesday that hairdressers and beauty centers can reopen their doors next week, while cafes, restaurants, cinemas, theaters and museums can resume their activities June 1.
As the authorities said in a statement, all companies can reopen their doors as long as they comply with the hygiene and safety measures that have been laid down.
Therefore, among other things, it is mandatory to use the masks for the use of public transport. The government has stressed that it has decided to lift the restrictions faster than originally planned as coronavirus cases increase, a number that continues to decrease.
The Netherlands has registered 41,000 confirmed cases and 5,204 deaths since the pandemic started. The restriction measures were imposed for the first time on May 13. Since then, the population has had to keep a distance of 1.5 meters.
The training centers will reopen next week as planned. They can also carry out sporting activities in specialized clubs.
