the Travellers who come home from high-risk areas should have from two weeks in the thuisquarantaine. Reisbrancheorganisatie TRAVEL is a strong supporter of the measure. "It was a lot earlier, should have been done," says president Frank Oostdam, Thursday.
People who have returned from a risk area had already been requested for two weeks to stay at home, but they were not interested. Now, this is a fact of life. The staff of the public health service will even call to check whether the passengers on the thuisquarantaine to keep.
in Addition, passengers flying from a hazardous area to come home, at the airport and asked to have a blood test. Also, if the test is negative, it should be the people in the thuisquarantaine.
"it is what It is," says the TRAVEL-chair of Oostdam. "Of course, we are afraid that people will because of this, avoided as much as possible in order to go on vacation, and the travel industry is harder to hit. However, people were reluctant."
According to Oostdam, there were these additional measures are in two different camps, tourists, people who go abroad, and that all safety precautions are taken, or the people who remain in the country. "There's nothing more between us, and that won't change."
"We are, therefore, strongly in favour of such measures. We will be there from the people who are able to go on holiday with a feeling of security and love when they come home. On the one hand, the extra level of control, therefore, is a hindrance, but on the other hand, it gives you extra confidence."
