Following the new measures to manage the spread of the COVID-19 virus in the Netherlands as announced by the Dutch government on 12 March 2020, the World Press Photo Foundation has closed the World Press Photo House in Amsterdam to the public until 31 March and cancelled all public activities. This involves the PhotoQ bookstore, the exhibition "Be Water!" The Strategy of Resistance in the Hong Kong Protests, and all events.

World Press Photo will actively track the recommendations of the health authorities on a daily basis to implement the relevant actions. Any significant changes or extension to the current measures will be communicated as soon as possible.
