This coming weekend will be Christmas Eve. Due to the high number of corona infections, the measures have been tightened. This means that families have to decide how to celebrate Sinterklaas. Together with grandparents, with the whole family or alone with the family. Do you just celebrate Sinterklaas as usual?

The tightened measures state that a maximum of four people may be received, children under the age of 12 do not count. People are allowed to receive visitors once a day, while keeping a distance of 1.5 meters from people outside the family. Before you visit or receive visitors, a self-test must be done. The cabinet also states that people should be extra careful with contact between people over seventy and children under 12 years of age.

Last Friday, Prime Minister Rutte indicated in the press conference that it is very important that small children do not visit grandparents for the next three weeks. “If it really can’t be any other way with Sinterklaas: keep 1.5 meters away and test in advance,” said Rutte. He also says that he is afraid that the elderly could become infected by the children.
