This is how the Netherlands reacts to a new blow in crisis: ‘This is a 100 percent lockdown for us' Economy

This is how the Netherlands reacts to a new blow in crisis: ‘This is a 100 percent lockdown for us’ Economy

reactionsEvening life is completely restricted in the Netherlands. Almost all businesses will have to close their doors from 5 p.m. in the near future. Primary and secondary schools will remain open, but additional measures such as wearing face masks will be introduced. How do the branches respond to this so-called evening lockdown? This article will be added to in the course of the evening.

In the event industry the new measures hit like a sledgehammer. “As an industry that has been suffering from the measures taken earlier for a long time, the latest measures are now experienced as heavy and burdensome,” Willem Westermann of the Association of Event Makers (VVEM) told this site. “We hope that with these severe measures, solutions to the current problems can be found within a short time.”

The industry is looking for perspective and a roadmap for next year, two aspects that, according to VVEM, are not yet present and that must be completed in the coming weeks. “The measures taken leave little or no room for activities. That is why the support offered is urgently needed.”

Music venues and theaters also react disappointed to the evening lockdown. ,,What you call a black friday”, sighs Berend Schans of the Dutch Poppodia and Festivals Association (VNPF) in conversation with this site. “It is a pity that we have to close, especially because we do not contribute to infections. But if it contributes to reducing the pressure on hospitals, we are happy to cooperate.” According to Schans, the sector will not benefit from an evening lockdown. “As a sector, we cannot do anything with what is possible during the day. In fact, this means a 100% lockdown. When we open again later, we want a clear roadmap and no yo-yo policy. Everyone already feels that these 3 weeks will become 6 weeks and the lockdown will probably be lifted over the turn of the year.”

The theater sector believes that the measures are almost equivalent to a complete closure. The Association of Theater and Concertgebouw Directors (VSCD) believes that the early closing time and the maximum hall occupancy of only 33 percent will only further damage the already damaged sector. “The theater sector is being hit hard,” the VSCD said in a response. ,,December is normally a busy month, with many great productions. A closing time of 5 p.m. means that many performances cannot go on. The limitation to a maximum of 30 percent of the capacity makes the remaining performances unprofitable.”

The VSCD thinks that a large part of its members will close its doors in the near future. ..A single stage will still be able to use the space now offered, but most will close due to financial and personnel necessity. After all the openings and closings of the past year and a half, the stretch in the performing arts is over.”

Trade union CNV is pleased that the government has reintroduced support measures for affected companies. The union believes this “generous aid package” could help prevent an “economic crisis and thousands of layoffs”. At the same time, CNV also wants a longer-term vision from the cabinet.

“The sectors that the cabinet wants to partially close are precisely the sectors that have already been hit and are fragile. We know that staff are the first to lose out when things go wrong,” notes CNV chairman Piet Fortuin.

CNV calls on the cabinet to also make plans for the longer term. “We are now bouncing too much from measure to measure,” said Fortuin, who sees that this causes “poor scenes”. “Not only in hospitals, but also in many workplaces where uncertainty and unrest is increasing.” According to the federation chairman, such a vision should lead to “less panic football and more well-considered policy”.

The PO Council thinks it is good that education can continue because going to school together with classmates is crucial for the development of children. The VO council said earlier this week that he would like the schools to remain open. “We have seen before that school closures have negative consequences for children. Not only because of possible learning delay, but also because there are concerns about their well-being,” said the chairman of the PO Council, Freddy Weima.

“That does not alter the fact that we understand that schools are in an incredibly complicated situation where it is inevitable that classes are temporarily at home and sometimes entire schools are temporarily closed. The tightened measures also demand a lot from the schools and their employees, who sometimes worry about their health.”

The Dutch swimming association KNZB understands that, among other things, amateur sport must close from next Sunday between 5 p.m. and 5 a.m. “The figures for the number of infections show that this measure is necessary. We understand this choice by the government and are happy that sports can still be done at other times,” the KNZB responded to the cabinet’s new interventions in the fight against the corona virus.

The KNZB announced that the competitions that were scheduled for Sunday evening this weekend will be canceled and possibly moved to another time. According to the swimming association, the consequences for the coming NK short course, the Dutch Swimming League and the water polo competitions will become clear in the course of next week. The consequences for diving competitions and synchronized swimming will also be announced at a later date.

Not being able to train after 5 p.m. has, according to the KNVB direct consequences for the fitness of the almost 1.2 million amateur football players in the Netherlands and is crucial to be able to continue playing football during the weekend. That is why the football association calls on the House of Representatives to discuss this new government measure against the corona virus with the cabinet next Tuesday. ,,Give us the opportunity to stay physically and mentally fit!’, the KNVB argues in a press statement.

,,For many children and almost all adults, it is not possible to train before 5 p.m. on weekdays. Then they cannot exercise under expert supervision at an association. But you can kick a ball together in a park,” the KNVB notes.
