Opening hours of the shops
Stores with essential services
Non-essential shops are open until 5pm. Do these stores offer essential services, such as a postal or parcel service or a banking service? In that case, these services may be offered until 8 p.m. Part of the store may then remain accessible to customers. Of course, the basic measures apply, such as wearing a mouth cap and keeping 1.5 meters away. The rest of the non-essential store is not accessible after 5pm.
A visitor standard of a maximum of 1 visitor per 5 m2 applies to shops.
Shopkeepers take hygiene measures.
