SEX workers in Amsterdam have been made to stop working for the next two weeks because brothels and window prostitution are included in the local definition of sex clubs which have to close as part of new measures against Covid-19.
There was some confusion with regards to the window workers, but as with the first lockdown the Amsterdam safety executive includes all sex workers under the sex clubs heading so the curtains are now closed.
A spokeswoman for the Red Light United which represents more than 100 sex workers in Amsterdam has complained that there has been very poor communication about the Government intentions as hairdressers can still work even though they are in close contact with their clients.
Pointing out that many of those she represents are in deep financial trouble, she said about the closure “And that while it is already incredibly quiet in the Red Light District. There is hardly anyone on the street. Even the drug dealers are gone.”
