Coronavirus entry pass

Allocated seating is compulsory in places where a coronavirus entry pass is required. This applies to the catering industry, sports, art and culture and events. 

Is it difficult for you to get a coronavirus entry pass? For instance because you do not have a smartphone or internet? In that case, Delft voor Elkaar is ready to help. Just go to a district contact point for instance, or call on the Formulierenbrigade at walk-in hours. It is not necessary to make an appointment.

Face masks

Face masks must be worn in many indoor public spaces where you are not required to show a coronavirus entry pass.

Adjusted opening hours and services

Due to the coronavirus, the municipality has limited its opening hours and services. The city office at Stationsplein will remain open as usual, but not on Friday evenings.

Please be aware that it can take longer to reach us by phone. It can also take longer to receive a response from us on Facebook, Twitter or WhatsApp.
