The Dutch government has decided to allow spectators to be present in the hall during Eurovision-2021 in May. This was reported on the website of the song contest.
"We welcome the decision of the Dutch government and the possibility that we can invite fans to join us when we return to the Eurovision Song Contest," Executive Supervisor Martin Österdahl said.
He noted that the organizers are working on the rules of visiting spectators for competitive concerts. Visitors will be required to have a negative coronavirus test result. A mobile laboratory may be installed on the territory so that everyone can take the test quickly. A maximum of 3,500 spectators will be able to attend all nine shows, including rehearsals, semi-finals, and finals.
"We will consider all available options and announce more details on how we can safely organize a competition at Ahoy in Rotterdam in the coming weeks, of course, if the situation allows," Österdahl added.
