(Bloomberg) -- Museums and theaters in the Netherlands are temporarily turning themselves into hair salons and gyms to protest against what they say are unfair coronavirus measures.
The protest on Wednesday follows a government decision to relax restrictions on some businesses, but keep museums and theaters shut.
This triggered the creative minds in the country to take action, and several theaters, concert halls and museums decided to take part in a demonstration. The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam is open to get a hair cut, and the Frans Hals Museum in Haarlem is being used for gym classes.
The Dutch government on Friday announced plans to ease its strict lockdown amid a drop in coronavirus fatalities and intensive-care admissions. The announcement came even as daily infections climbed to record high levels.
