Service centres to open on Monday, 4 October

Starting from Monday, 4 October, the service centres will open almost all their services that have been closed, such as gym activities, restaurant services and open group activities.

Larger events and gatherings will not be organised at the service centres as of yet.

There may be exceptions to the opening hours of the restaurants at the service centres. The number of customer places has been restricted in the restaurants.

More information on the services can be obtained from the information desk of your service centre.

We still wish that all clients will continue to follow the current protection guidelines. The wish is that clients will wear a face mask and remember to wash their hands and cough into their sleeve. This is to ensure that service centre visits are safe for all people.
