Corona measures in the Netherlands

‘Permanent’ corona measures

The more ore less permanent anti corona measures in the Netherlands are;

  • wash your hands often, 20 seconds per time.
  • keep a distance of at least 1,5 meters to all people that do not belong to your household.
  • sneeze/cough in your elbow and wash your hands afterwards.
  • avoid crowds.
  • stay at home if your feeling flu-ish. Your relatives should also stay at home if you have fever.

The Dutch government is convinced that these corona measures are very important. By obeying them you will be safer than if you wear masks or gloves, so they say.

Changing corona measures

Other corona measures differ per the phase of the disease. You will find an overview of the current measures on the Dutch government’s website. 

The Dutch borders are open for travelers from most EU countries and, with residence permit or approval letter, travelers from non EU countries. However, Dutch government strongly recommends 14 days of self-quarantine if you travel from a country for which travel restrictions apply,.

Corona tests

Everybody with covid-19 symptoms can be tested. Just call 0800-1202. Have your BSN ready as this will be asked.

You are expected to stay at home until it’s time to do your test and also stay at home after the test has been done, at least until you know the (negative) result. If you have tested positive you and your possible family members will have to stay at home.

Corona tracking app

The Dutch government is working on a tracking app, that will enable to see with whom a Corona infected person has been in contact. This will hinder the further expansion of the virus. 

Do you think you are infected?

Stay at home and make an appointment for a test.
