With fresh Covid-19 cases on the decline, the Dutch government has announced a new easing of coronavirus restrictions effective June 5, which according to Prime Minister Mark Rutte means the "actual end of the lockdown".

The new measures allow people to host a maximum of four people in their home (two previously) per day, and get together with a maximum of four people from different households outdoors.

Outdoor sports activities can now be practiced by a maximum of 50 people, and restaurants and bars can stay open again between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.
