The cabinet has an idea of which “direction” it wants to take to reduce the number of corona infections, but an official decision will follow on Friday. Insiders report that a lot can still change. It seems most likely that the cabinet will follow the advice of the Outbreak Management Team to have catering, non-essential shops and cultural institutions close at 5 p.m.
The ministers involved met again on Thursday at the Catshuis as usual. During those consultations, outgoing Prime Minister Mark Rutte and corona minister Hugo de Jonge showed themselves the strongest supporters of hard intervention.
It also seems likely that education will remain open, something the OMT also advised. But whether additional measures are being considered in schools to prevent infections there, for example, is still unclear.
