Addition guidance is provided by the protocol of the ‘Club van 11’ (CvE) in combination with the protocol adopted by the Dutch Museum Association (MV). Thorough preparations for reopening the museum began several weeks ago. The protocol for a safe and responsible reopening of the museum aims to ensure that visitors can safely share the public space within the museum and that volunteers, staff and suppliers are able to safely carry out their work in the museum as well. The measures set out in the protocol are intended to prevent new COVID-19 infections and to limit the consequences of the novel coronavirus without requiring that the museum stay closed.
