On 13 October, the Dutch government announced new measures to control the spread of coronavirus. If everyone in the Netherlands follows these rules, we will get the infection rate back under control. The partial lockdown will be disappointing news for many people, as several events have been cancelled and cafés, bars, and restaurants will have to close for at least four weeks from Wednesday 15 October. But you can still do many activities – we’ll provide information on these as clearly as possible.
An important change to the measures is that all establishments serving food and drink must shut from 15 October. However, you can still order takeaway meals, and many restaurants are offering this option so that we can enjoy all the delicious food made in Maastricht. Hotels will remain open, so you can still spend the night in Maastricht.
