Bas Vreugdenhil of cafe ‘t Peerdt had wanted to slow down. He’s worked in the hospitality industry for over fifty years, but successive lockdowns saw his retirement get pushed away further and further. “We were finally doing well again,” he says. “But now we have to close earlier and check QR-codes while only a small percentage of infections can be traced back to our industry.” He’s lost all ideas on how to continue.
