Public transport
Public transport will continue to operate but must be organised in such a way that passengers can maintain a distance of 1.5 metres from each other. The authorities have, however, requested that you limit your use of public transport to essential travel and essential times, preferably outside the rush hour. Please also pay attention to basic hygiene. 


Cruise ships may moor in the city and stock up on supplies. They may not disembark in the city, however, meaning passengers may not leave the ship.

What should I do?
Pay even more attention to hygiene: wash your hands with soap and water, cough and sneeze in the crook of your arm, don’t kiss others, do not shake people’s hands, maintain a safe distance and stay at home if you feel sick.
