The caretaker cabinet wants to continue with so-called Fieldlab events that are planned in the near future, despite the criticism that has erupted about a 538 Orange Day in Breda next Saturday.

Opponents fear the great risk of contamination now that the hospitals are still full of corona patients.

But the government believes that the scientific research behind these events is of great importance in connection with the reopening of society, insiders confirm after news from



Several ministers spoke about the issue after Breda itself had raised the alarm about the commotion that has arisen.

The cabinet will consult with Breda about the situation.

The city council has yet to discuss the plan as well.

That will happen on Monday.

Breda's mayor Paul Depla said on Sunday that all advice on organizing the event will be carefully weighed before a permit is granted for the event.

"Based on the advice of the police, health services and the municipality, I will look: is it justified to get the event licensed?", Said the mayor.

At the same time, Depla is listening to the social unrest and the comments of people outraged about the event.

"We take their concerns seriously," said the mayor.

More Fieldlabs on the schedule in the near future

Field labs have been held before, such as the presentation of the

3FM Awards

and a festival in Biddinghuizen.

In the coming weeks there will also be a Mud Masters event at the Floriade site in Haarlemmermeer, in which nine thousand people can participate.

The Hague Residentie Orkest will give a concert in the Zuiderstrandtheater in The Hague for a thousand people.

The Enschede Marathon foundation is organizing a running race with five thousand recreationists, who run 10 kilometers on a protected area.

These events are different from the pilots with entrance tests, such as at Keukenhof and some museums.

For example, there must be a distance of 1.5 meters.
