Corona update 17-02

Dear Athletes,

Last Tuesday there was a press conference. It has become clear that the Netherlands will open up completely in a number of steps.

For us, this means that we can distinguish two phases for the sports offer:
Phase 1: Relaxations from February 18th through February 24th
Phase 2: Relaxation as of the 25th of February

Phase 1: Relaxation from 18 February to 24 February


  • We will continue to check QR codes for indoor sports facilities on Wednesday nights (after 6:00 pm), Friday nights (after 6:00 pm) and on the weekends.
  • After scanning the QR code, it is then no longer necessary as an athlete/visitor to:
    • wear a face mask
    • keep a distance of 1.5 meters
  • At other times it is mandatory to wear a face mask inside. During sports, the face masks may be removed.
  • Outside, during the coming week, everywhere where it is not possible to keep a distance of 1.5 meters, it is advised to wear a face mask.
  • The above also applies to the public. The public should keep a fixed distance of 1.5 meters from each other within a fixed place if QR codes are not checked.

Sports bar and clubhouses

  • Closing times will be extended to 01:00.
  • If the corona access card is used, all indoor measures are cancelled. At times when this is not being used, the current measures such as compulsory face masks and 1.5m distance will remain in force.

Phase 2: Relaxations as of February 25

Sports, Sportsbar and Clubhouses

  • The corona access card expires at all times.
  • All indoor and outdoor restrictions lapse.
  • There are no maximum closing times for the Sportsbar and clubhouses, so the regular hospitality licensing guidelines are again normative.

Don’t forget

The coronavirus is not gone. Therefore, don’t forget:

  • Wash your hands often
  • Cough and sneeze into your elbow
  • Do not shake hands
  • If you have symptoms, stay home and get tested at the GGD
  • Ensure good ventilation
  • Keep your distance in crowded places.

We hope to welcome everyone again soon at all sports activities and events!

Kind regards,

The 76st Executive Board of the ACLO & the Management of the ACLO
