The Dutch government announced a short, partial isolation for three weeks, which began on November 13 and will last at least until December 3, in order to contain the increase in the number of Covid-19 infections and hospitalizations.
A new set of measures will be introduced, which includes the mandatory closing time of land-based gambling establishments (18:00), including casinos and slot machines.
“The virus is everywhere, and it also needs to be fought everywhere. To overcome this difficult period, additional actions are needed, therefore, starting from 18:00, six measures will be taken tomorrow to reduce contacts,” Prime Minister Mark Rutte said at a press conference last Friday, The Brussels Times reports.
All visitors to gambling establishments must continue to present a valid coronavirus pass . Masks are still mandatory in places where entry passes due to coronavirus are not required, and people must stay 1.5 meters apart from each other in these places.
For sporting events, spectators are not allowed to attend professional and amateur events.
