We are waiting for the corona press conference that will be given by Prime Minister Rutte and Minister Hugo de Jonge tonight at 19 pm. Of course, things have again leaked to the media and this time the rumors are that there will be a number of relaxation in the Netherlands. Hairdressers would be allowed to reopen under strict conditions and secondary schools would partially open. Consideration would also have been given to relaxation for young people, such as exercising together outside.

The curfew measure will continue to apply, because this measure would slow down the increase in the spread of the British corona variant and ensure that a number of minor relaxation is now possible. Incidentally, this Friday will be the final decision on the lawsuit that activist group Virus Truth had filed about the abolition of the curfew in the Netherlands.

Morocco has imposed an entry ban for Dutch travelers since last night. Travelers from our country are no longer welcome there for the time being. According to the website The Netherlands worldwide, Morocco has decided this because the number of corona infections in our country remains high. The travel ban also applies if travelers from the Netherlands want to travel to Morocco via another country. The Dutch embassy in Morocco tweeted that all flights from the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland and Turkey have been canceled until further notice. It remains to be seen how long this entry ban will apply.
