Netherlands to allow small crowds at football matches, theaters this month
The Dutch government announced on Tuesday that it has given its approval to expand the number of events where a limited audience is permitted to attend as part of a series of experiments to see what can be safely reopened in the Netherlands without causing a spike in new coronavirus infections. Additionally, zoos, theme parks, the Keukenhof, museums and other places where guests continuously move through an attraction will be allowed to take part in the tests.
Visitors will be allowed entrance only if they can show proof of a negative coronavirus test. Event sizes range from just 20 at some smaller hotel conference rooms, up to 7,500 for the Ajax-AZ football match at the Johan Cruijff Arena in Amsterdam on April 24. The National Opera and Ballet can host up to 1,600 audience members, the 3FM Awards at TivoliVredenburg can have a thousand people in attendance, and outdoor locations like zoos, theme parks and the Keukenhof will be able to welcome several thousand.
