How to avoid spreading the virus
Wash your hands with soap when you get home or when you visit someone.
If you are indoors — at home or in the office — open a window or door.
Stay at least 1.5 metres away from other people.
Do not shake hands.
Work at home if possible.
If you have to go to work, avoid travelling on a crowded bus or train.
You may have a maximum of 4 visitors at home a day.
This does not apply to children under the age of 13.
If you have symptoms: Get tested and stay home
Do this even if you are vaccinated!
Get yourself tested for coronavirus and stay home if you have one or more of the following symptoms:
- > 37.5 °C
- shortness of breath
- sudden loss of taste or smell
- snotty nose
- sore throat
Do you have corona? Then you and everyone in your house must stay at home. Even if you are vaccinated.
Does someone in your house have corona? Then you must stay at home too.
The coronavirus test is free.
There are two ways to make an appointment:
- Online: visit www.coronatest.nl. You will need your DigiD.
- By phone: call 0800-1202.
Stay home until you receive the results from the GGD.
You must not receive visitors until you have received the results. The GGD will inform you when you are allowed to go out again.
A mask is mandatory in the following places:
- In buildings, such as shops and libraries;
- When someone needs to get close, such as the hairdresser or the doctor;
- In the taxi, tram, bus, metro and train, and at stations and stops;
- At the airport and on the plane.
You risk a €95 fine if you do not wear a mask where it is required.
QR code sometimes required
You need a QR code at some places.
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. Call 0800 1421.
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 12 can make an appointment for a vaccination.
You can find more information about vaccination on the Pharos website.
If you have symptoms of coronavirus, do not go straight to your GP. Call first.
If you have symptoms that are not related to coronavirus, make an appointment with your GP.
It is important to get care when you need it.
