Tuesday evening Prime Minister Mark Rutte, together with Minister Hugo de Jonge, has announced new corona measures. All amateur competitions for adults are cancelled as from Wednesday. Children up to 18 years may continue to train and play mutual matches with teams from their own club.
The new measures will apply from Wednesday October 14 at 10:00 PM. These rules make us take the following measures for our club (also in consultation with the Schaatshal and comparable with other ice hockey associations):
The basic rules remain unchanged:
The national measures apply from Wednesday October 14 at 10:00 PM and will in principle remain in force for 4 weeks. In the weeks to 27 October, the cabinet will assess what is needed for the period thereafter. There must be sufficient evidence of reduced number of infections and of the pressure on regular care before it can be said with certainty that the measures are effective and can therefore be reconsidered.
We keep an eye on developments. We will answer questions that arise among you as well as possible, but sometimes depend on the further (yet to be drawn up) protocols of other parties involved.
