29 September 2020: Update on the Corona Pandemic - The Netherlands forecasts 5,000 coronavirus cases a day by next week
29 September 2020: Update on The Corona Pandemic – The Netherlands now considers all of Belgium an orange travel zone, meaning it advises against all non-essential trips to the country. In addition, anyone who travels to the Netherlands and has been in the Brussels-Capital Region, the city of Antwerp, and a couple of other areas in Belgium is “urgently advised” to quarantine for ten days upon arrival. Since I’m living in Ghent I’m not impacted and I’m still good to travel to The Netherlands if it wasn’t for the fact that the Dutch government is expecting five thousand new infections of the SARS-CoV-2 virus every day by next week, and therefore, will implement stricter and more drastic restrictions. The new restrictions that will become effective tonight at 6:00 pm include that employees must be encouraged to work from home with the possibility of employers being held responsible if a cluster of coronavirus infections affects their workforce. An impacted business can be shut down for up to two weeks! In addition, bars and restaurants will be closed early and public gatherings are discouraged. I’m wondering how my Dutch friends will react now that their government has tightened some of Europe’s most relaxed coronavirus rules.
