Face masks to be compulsory in busy parts of Rotterdam
All visitors to shopping areas in the city centre, large markets and indoor shopping malls Zuidplein and Alexandrium, will be required to wear a face mask from August 5 onwards.
Everyone over the age of 13 should wear a (non-medical) face mask in the designated areas. This applies to both the streets (outdoors) as the shops from 6am to 10pm.
The Rotterdam-Rijnmond Safety Region introduces this obligation as a pilot, to provide extra protection in places where many people come together and maintaining distance is harder.
In addition, always:
– Keep your distance.
– Avoid crowds.
– Get tested as soon as possible if you have (mild) symptoms.
