We were surprised at the lack of precautions taken in Amsterdam compared to Canada, Germany or Portugal. Amsterdam appeared wide open with little mask wearing. For example, staff in restaurants were serving without masks. It could be the high vaccination rate has caused the Dutch to be complacent. Currently [October], about 84% of the eligible population is fully vaccinated. Canada stands at about 83% of the eligible population fully vaccinated.
During our visit at the largest square in Amsterdam, we encountered the end of a large demonstration of anti-vaxxers. There was a significant police presence just in case.
