The cabinet is considering allowing shops to open for so that customers can pick up orders directly from next week, broadcaster NOS said on Monday.
The measure is one of several under consideration by the cabinet and would start on February 9 if approved, NOS said.
Currently, DIY stores, cannabis cafes, bars and restaurants are open for takeaways but clothes and other shops have been shut since mid December.
On Sunday ministers confirmed that primary schools and daycare centres can reopen on February 8. NOS has also reported that the curfew may end on the morning of February 10.
The cabinet meets to discuss the current coronavirus situation on Tuesday morning and prime minister Mark Rutte will hold a press conference on Tuesday evening to announce the changes.
NOS sources also say that the current lockdown – with museums, cafes and theatres shut – will be extended to March 2.
DutchNews.nl will cover the press conference live on Twitter.
