Effective date: 1 June 2021

What changes?

Do you work in events, sports, or culture? You may ask your customers for a test certificate for entrance to your establishment, event, match, concert hall, museum, or theatre. The certificate should demonstrate that a person was not infected with the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 at the time of testing. This is a temporary measure to make it possible for these branches to reopen to the public sooner. A test certificate is valid for 24 hours.

As of 10 July entrepreneurs in the hospitality industry may no longer use a test certificate for entrance (nor a proof of vaccination or recovery) to be able to receive more guests.

Public services, such as public transport or municipal halls will never ask for a test certificate to let you enter.

For whom?

  • entrepreneurs in the hospitality sector
  • entrepreneurs in the events sector
  • organisers of sporting events
  • concert halls
  • museums
  • theatres

When?

This change in the Public Health Act (Wet publieke gezondheid, Wpg) has entered into force on 1 June.
