With the new Corona relaxation we can do more with all partners of the Ooievaarspas. People can also use the self-tests and mouth caps when they go out again, says alderman Arjen Kapteijns. People who have corona-related complaints can do a self-test or go to the GGD. From 24 February, wearing a face mask will only be mandatory in public transport and at the airports. This is to offer vulnerable people the opportunity to travel safely. Of course, residents can also wear face masks in places where this is not mandatory. For example in places where it is busy.
