€95 Fine for not wearing a face mask, new law likely from December

Individuals who won’t wear a face mask in all indoor public spots will face a fine of €95 from December 1, sources have told the Telegraaf.

Right now, the Dutch government ’emphatically suggests’ people to wear face-covers in shops and council buildings, yet can’t make masks necessary until new emergency legislation has been sanctioned in law.

MPs still has to decide on the face-cover fines, which are sufficiently low to guarantee individuals caught not wearing one will not get wound up with a criminal record. 

Ministers did bring down the fine for breaking social distancing guidelines from €390 to €95 to dodge the criminal record trap. Individuals who can’t wear a face-cover for physical, health or psychiatric reasons won’t confront fines in the event that they don’t consent, the Telegraaf said.

The Netherlands has opposed making face mask necessary since the beginning of the pandemic, saying the impact on forestalling the spread of Covid might be minor. Notwithstanding, since the subsequent wave ministers have changed their position, saying ‘every single makes a difference’.
