On Friday evening, outgoing Prime Minister Mark Rutte and outgoing Minister Hugo de Jonge (Public Health) will hold a press conference about the corona measures and what the coming autumn will look like.

This is what has already been leaked.

From September 20, no more 1,5 meters away

The outgoing cabinet wants to abolish the one and a half meter rule from 20 September.

As of 1 November, other measures could be removed.

Then, among other things, the discotheques and nightclubs could open again.

The cabinet already asked the Outbreak Management Team (OMT) in June whether the distance measure could be abolished, but according to the experts, there were too many "uncertain factors" at the time to arrive at a positive advice.

This week, the OMT again addressed the issue.

It is not yet clear whether the experts consider the abolition of the one and a half meter rule to be responsible as of mid-September.

Minister De Jonge previously hoped that "the last really restrictive measure - keeping your distance" could be abolished this Friday.

Measures in education

MBO and higher education can reopen almost completely in the new academic year.

The one and a half meter rule will no longer apply there.

However, there will be a maximum of 75 students per lecture room next school year.

One-way traffic in the buildings may also be added, the




In secondary education, wearing a mouth cap remains mandatory, because only 41 percent of young people have had a first injection.

A distance of 1.5 meters must also be kept between teacher and student.

This only applies outside of class, for example when students move between classrooms.

Students do not have to keep their distance from each other.

Grand Prix of the Netherlands continues

The cabinet is going to give permission for the Grand Prix of the Netherlands.

This was confirmed by a spokesperson for the Ministry of Justice.

The current corona measures are not an obstacle to organizing the Formula 1 race in Zandvoort, early next month.

The decision will return Formula 1 to the Netherlands after an absence of 36 years.

That was actually supposed to happen in May last year, but due to the corona virus, the race on the specially renovated circuit had to be postponed.
