Posted by Adam Busiakiewicz: have reported on news that the Dutch Government will be voting on new laws that will make covid tests mandatory for those wishing to enter cultural venues in the country. The proposed pieces of legislation, which are estimated to cost €1bn, have been opposed by 100 museum directors in the Netherlands including those of the major museums and galleries of Amsterdam. Museum officials have described the proposed tests, which are likely to cost €7.50 per person, as a "death blow" for cultural institutions.

An interesting story to keep an eye on, it seems.
