The municipality of Eindhoven will no longer provide service to visitors who wear ‘face-covering clothing’ and refuse to show their faces.
“A visitor with face-covering clothing is approached by an employee and asked to make and/or keep his/her face visible,” says the municipality of Eindhoven. “If the visitor does not cooperate, we do not provide services and we ask the visitor to leave the premises.”
From Thursday 1 August 2019 the new law ‘Partial prohibition of face covering clothing’ will take effect. This new law prohibits wearing a burqa, balaclava, full-face helmet or other clothing that covers the face in public buildings. Think of schools, healthcare institutions or government buildings. A burqa is now also prohibited on public transport.
