If you are indoors — open a window or door.

Stay at least 1.5 metres away from other people. This is mandatory.

Do not shake hands.


Work at home.
If you have to go to work, keep a 1,5-metre distance from others.


You may have a maximum of 4 visitors at home a day.
This does not apply to children under the age of 13.

Make sure you only visit one place per day.

If you are going to visit someone or visitors are coming to you, do a self-test.

Stay at home as much as possible.

If you have symptoms: Get tested and stay home

Do this even if you are vaccinated!

  • > 37.5 °C
  • shortness of breath
  • sudden loss of taste or smell
  • coughing

The coronavirus test is free.

There are two ways to make an appointment:

  • In the taxi, tram, bus, metro and train, and at stations and stops;
  • At the airport and on the plane.
  • At school: in the corridors, from group 6.

You risk a €95 fine if you do not wear a mask.
