Starting on 1 June, TESO also requires you wear a facemask
Starting on Monday 1 June 2020, a non-medical facemask will have to be worn on public transport. This also applies at TESO and the other Wadden Sea ferries.
All passengers 13 years of age or older who want to take the ferry from that day on will have to wear a non-medical facemask. The regulation applies to both the vessels themselves and all TESO grounds. In Den Helder, this means that any passengers within the cordoned-off area must put on their facemasks. On Texel, facemasks must be worn at entrances and exits, on the bridge, in the waiting room and in assembly areas.
Occupants of vehicles must remain in them during crossings. Anyone leaving a vehicle – to visit the bathroom, for instance – must wear a non-medical facemask. This applies both on TESO grounds and on board its ferries. Occupants inside a vehicle do not need to wear a facemask.
Cyclists and pedestrians must put on a facemask as soon as they enter the grounds and keep it on throughout the journey. Anyone who does not have a facemask with them can buy one at the counter in Den Helder or at the information desk on Texel.
