Measures for safely navigating Maastricht extended until 31 January 2021

As of March, the Municipality of Maastricht has been implementing extra measures in response to the coronavirus crisis to ensure that people can safely navigate Maastricht during the pandemic. The municipality has now decided to extend the extra measures until 31 January 2021. This means that the following arrangements to safely navigate Maastricht will continue to apply: avoid crowds, keep 1.5-metres distance from each other, keep right on the streets, and use the waiting spaces in front of shops.

Safely navigating the city: this is how we do it!

The lines on the street that indicate walking routes, the one-way streets (both dynamic and assigned), and the information boards and screens in the city centre will remain in place until that date. This means that our hospitality guides, who are informing people of the measures, will continue their work in the city centre at busy times. The Municipality of Maastricht, Maastricht Marketing, Centrummanagement Maastricht, and the Maastricht Bereikbaar urban programme are collaborating on the implementation of the Safely Navigating the City (Veilig Rondje Stad) programme as well as on the deployment of the hospitality guides.

Custom approaches on peak dates

The Municipality of Maastricht has announced that, depending on the development of the coronavirus pandemic, it will review whether the measures need to be extended past 31 January 2021. For the peak dates in December (close to Christmas), the municipality may focus on custom approaches or upscaling the measures depending on how busy the city centre is.
