The Outbreak Management Team (OMT) advises to request a negative test result from all visitors - vaccinated and unvaccinated - to major events and busy catering establishments.

In addition, the experts recommend investigating whether the CoronaCheck app should not only give access to a catering facility once a day, according to the OMT advice published Monday evening.

The OMT says it cannot be ruled out that groups, as they move from one venue to another, are responsible for large-scale spread of the virus.

Research should show whether the CoronaCheck app can and should therefore only be used once every 24 hours to gain access to a location.

The experts previously advised, together with Fieldlab, to test all visitors and employees within 24 hours before the end of an event.

According to the cabinet, this was legally complicated and that is why people were allowed to test up to forty hours before the start of an event, a reconstruction by

After the relaxation on June 26, the number of corona infections increased at a rapid pace.

This was mainly due to the reopening of the nightclubs using Tests for Access and the emergence of the more contagious delta variant.

The relaxations were therefore partly reversed on July 19, as a result of which nightclubs had to close their doors again.

However, most infections have been incurred before the tightening, the OMT writes, which is why the situation will be "closed" in the coming days and weeks.

For the time being, the cabinet is not considering additional measures, the cabinet said on Monday.

The infection rates have now stabilized.

Yet the number of positive tests - around ten thousand a day - is still too high.

Although new measures are not yet necessary, "we may be here next week with a different story," said outgoing Prime Minister Mark Rutte.
