Compliance with coronavirus behavioral rules in the Netherlands 2020

More than 60 percent of the respondents to a widespread survey in the Netherlands indicated that they did not wash their hands regularly during the coronavirus pandemic. In addition, more than half of the of respondents indicated that they did not wash their hands thoroughly. Like most nations around the world, the government of the Netherlands imposed behavioral rules on society as a response to the rapid outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic. These countermeasures included hygienic and social distancing rules. Whereas some of these rules, such as the regular and thourough washing of hands, were not followed by a majority of the respondents, others were adopted massively. For instance, 99.6 percent indicated that they did not shake hands with anyone, and over 90 percent refrained from entertaining more than three guests at once. All in all, willingness to comply to the rules was expected to decrease over the course of 2020.
