Stay home, “according to the text message. “Protect yourself and people around you. Together against corona. ” NL alert is the “alarm-agent” that can reach the Dutch government during disasters or emergencies citizens.

Immediately, Natuurmonumenten came with a call. “Our areas are being flooded with thousands of visitors and we think this is not justified.” Go home, the message said.

Nature Reserves and National Forest Service said Friday it still recreationists should seek quiet places and had to keep away from each other. But too many people apparently went looking for that quiet places, so that it sometimes keeping distance of 1.5 meters, as advised, failed.

We can do this. If you go boat campen you are so appallingly stupid that ‘s tight ass can not save more attractiveness. Come on, be nice once hard to get! For example, for a virus. Like other sick people make, writes comedian Claudia Breij.
