On 10 March, 2023, the Dutch government decided that the last measures against COVID-19, the coronavirus, can be eliminated. According to the National Outbreak Management Team (OMT), COVID-19 is no longer a pandemic. The virus is now part of our everyday lives. This means that the Netherlands Cancer Institute will also further downscale its COVID-19 measures. We are able to take this step because the resistance against COVID-19 in the Netherlands is high, and very few people develop serious symptoms after infection with the current variants.
