The Dutch can travel to Bonaire!

New measures, but traveling to Bonaire easier
Today Prime Minister Mark Rutte of the Netherlands announced new, stricter measures to contain the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19.
Specifically, the Dutch were strongly discouraged from traveling abroad, in the coming months.
However, Rutte indicated that the Caribbean part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, so including Bonaire, does not fall under ‘abroad’ as far as his cabinet is concerned.
Finally, Bonaire now goes to ‘yellow’ again!
A little later today, Bonaire’s Governor Edison Rijna announced that Bonaire will finally be a travel advice code yellow destination again as of tomorrow, November 4, 2020!
In concrete terms, this means that Dutch people, with a negative PCR test and a health certificate, have free access to Bonaire and do not have to go into mandatory quarantine when they return home. Travel insurers and health insurers will again cover any damage incurred at the holiday destination, like they used to.
