Excuse me for writing in English.
First of all, I was reluctant to bother writing and thought I would sleep on it, but I am still troubled by the irresponsibility of the store in Wassenaar.
On Wednesday 20 May I went shopping at about 3.30 pm at the Jumbo Store in Wassenaar. I was appalled at the number of people in the store. This is surely breaking the current laws in place concerning Covid 19. There were far, far too many people and I remember making this comment to two of the employees in the shop and they agreed with me.
The problem is that when there are too many people in the store, it is impossible to respect social distancing rules. This in turn makes people have a cavalier attitude to trying to respect these rules, particularly if the store in essence doesn’t set a good example itself, for instance by limiting the number of people allowed inside at a given time.
I know that in stores in The Hague or around the Amsterdam area, people need to queue up outside to maintain acceptable numbers. The son of a friend of mine was fined 400 euros for walking to his car with 3 other friends also walking to their separate cars in a car park outside Amsterdam (all 4 were fined 400 euros each). If the police happened to be in Jumbo at the time I was shopping, they would have had a field day!
I wish I had videoed it on my phone so that I could bring a media attention to this problem at Jumbo in Wassenaar. In fact from now on, I will make a point of doing so. I have also asked my friends to do the same.
You really need to do something about numbers allowed in at one time in your store. I urge you!! It cannot be allowed to continue. If there is soon a spike in numbers of people infected with Covid 19 in Wassenaar, it won’t be too difficult to figure out why.
I’m sorry if my mail comes across as a bit strong or over emotional, but I hope you understand.
When something is done about the problem I described in the other section.
