Netherlands tightening COVID restrictions

Of interest to anyone scheduled to be there between Nov. 28 and Dec. 19:
Putting this here as well as the general COVID forum as it only applies to this country, and may be more likely to be seen here. The new measures could go longer/become more or less stringent depending on reassessment on Dec. 14.

RNR (Ron) in The Hague, the report is concerning; hope all's well with you and yours.

From the page that Kathy so smartly linked to, here is the key — most everywhere except pharmacies and grocery stores has to close at 5 pm.

Everyone should stay at home as much as possible.
Between 17.00 and 05.00 locations must be closed and events are not permitted.
Everyone aged 18 and over must stay 1.5 metres away from others.
Essential shops, such as supermarkets and chemists, can stay open until 20.00.

Thanks, Kim! I probably should have highlighted that particular bit.
As near as I've been able to ferret out, take-out food will be allowed/available after 17:00. So, between that and grocery stores, travelers will be able to fill their tummies.

Yes, although it’s not very exciting to have to be back in one’s lodging by 5pm nightly.

True enough, Kim. :O(
Guess I should rephrase it to say, "...at LEAST be able to fill their tummies"?
