As of 1 December 2021: face masks mandatory at Royal FloraHolland locations
November 29, 2021
In accordance with the guidelines of the Dutch central government and the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) to wear a (non-medical) face mask in public indoor spaces, you will be required to wear a face mask at the Royal FloraHolland marketplace as of Wednesday 1 December 2021.
It is mandatory to wear a face mask as soon as you are standing in, walking or driving a tractor through the buildings. If you are sitting down, for example in the auction room, you may remove your face mask. It is also mandatory to wear a face mask in areas that are not enclosed and are therefore accessible, in practice, to others. The obligation to wear a face mask also applies therefore to the delivery lanes at boxes, non-enclosed areas of boxes and KNB areas.
Maintain a distance of 1.5 metres
As is well known by now, wearing a (non-medical) face mask or face shield does not replace the 1.5 meter rule. It is imperative that you always maintain a distance of 1.5 metres from other people and that you also make use of a (non-surgical) face mask. You are personally responsible for adherence to the coronavirus rules in your box space.
We want to offer everyone a safe place to work in our marketplace. We therefore ask you to actively follow the guidelines of the RIVM and our marketplace. According to the RIVM, wearing a face mask and keeping a distance of 1.5 metres helps to prevent the spread of infections. If the marketplace turns out to be a centre of infection, there is a risk of closure. In addition, staff absence as a result of infections could mean that you or we are no longer able provide our services. We are therefore counting on your cooperation.
