BRUSSELS, Nov 9: The Embassy of the State of Kuwait in the Netherlands warned Monday of the Dutch authorities’ decision to tighten precautionary measures and restrictions aimed at limiting the spread of COVID-19 infections since the sixth of November, after the number of infected people increased in hospitals in the past weeks. The embassy said in a statement received by Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) that the procedures include expanding the scope of work with a certificate of vaccination or free from COVID infection electronically in museums, halls, sports clubs and outdoor places in restaurants and cafes. She pointed out that the procedure for submitting the electronic certificate was previously in place when entering restaurants, cafes, cinemas, theaters, and entertainment, commercial, academic and exhibition events.
The embassy clarified that restaurants from outside the European Union must conduct a virus infection test to obtain a certificate free of infection to enter the mentioned places. The measures also include re-imposing the wearing of masks in shops, public buildings, higher education and salons, adhering to the distance between people at a distance of 1.5 meters and avoiding crowded places.
