On Wednesday, the Cabinet will again consider plans to impose a curfew. The final suggestion is that it should take effect between 8.30 PM and 4.30 AM, according to the insider report.
Earlier, there was talk of a curfew from 8 pm. An extra half hour should make it easier for children to, among other things, come home after exercising and training, which is the reason behind the new proposal.
The heavy-duty measure has been back on the table for some time due to Britain’s most contagious mutation of the coronavirus. The experts on the Outbreak Management Team (OMT) are extremely concerned about this.
Not only does the locker consider a curfew, but it also imposes restrictions on the maximum number of guests a family can receive. A family is now allowed a maximum of two people, and the government wants to limit this to one guest. There is also talk of banning flights to and from the UK and South Africa.
Insiders warn that plans remain subject to change. Outgoing Prime Minister Mark Rutte and Minister Hugo de Jong (Public Health) want to announce the plans at a press conference early Wednesday afternoon.
Then it will be discussed in the House of Representatives. Curfews are sensitive there, but support appears to be growing.
