How to avoid spreading the virus
Wash your hands with soap when you get home or when you visit someone.
If you are indoors — open a window or door.
Sneeze and cough in your elbow.
Don’t shake hands.
Work and visitors
Everyone can go back to work.
If you have symptoms: do a self-test
Do this even if you are vaccinated!
Do a self-test if you have 1 or more of these symptoms:

- sudden loss of taste or smell

The corona test at the GGD is free.
There are two ways to make an appointment:

Stay home until you receive the results from the GGD.
You must not receive visitors until you have received the results.

A corona vaccine protects you against coronavirus.
The vaccine is injected into your upper arm.
The vaccine prevents you from getting (seriously) ill.
In the Netherlands, everyone from the age of 5 is eligible for the vaccine.
Here is our information about vaccination. This information is in several languages.
No QR code needed in the Netherlands
You no longer need a QR code in the Netherlands. You do still need it in many other countries.
You will receive the QR code if you:
- are fully vaccinated;
- have had COVID-19 and are better;
- have a negative test result no more than 24 hours old.
Download the Coronacheck app on your phone. This is where your QR code is stored.
You can also get a QR code on paper.
You can print this yourself. Go to www.coronacheck.nl/nl/print/
You can also have the QR code sent to you.
For other coronavirus questions,
You can find more information about vaccination on the www.Thuisarts.nl/corona website.
Deze begrijpelijke informatie is gebaseerd op de adviezen van Rijksoverheid.nl en Thuisarts.nl en is getest met taalambassadeurs van Stichting ABC.
Deze pagina wordt geregeld aangepast n.a.v. nieuwe ontwikkelingen en adviezen.
