Corona virus

Infection rates and hospital admissions in the Netherlands are rising rapidly. The government wants to prevent the scaling down of care for patients other than coronas. That is why it has been decided that extra measures are needed.


Which corona measures apply in West-Zeeuws-Vlaanderen and affect me?

In Zeeland, the national rules apply. In places where a corona access card is not required, keep 1.5 metres away from each other and wear a face mask. Adjusted opening hours apply to shops and services such as hairdressers and food and beverage outlets. The basic rules remain: wash hands, keep a distance of 1,5 meters from each other, do not shake hands, make sure there is enough fresh air and in case of complaints stay at home and get tested immediately.


Can I still come to Zeeland for a holiday, a weekend-trip or a day-trip? What do I have to take into account if I want to come?
