Covid-19

Corporate Housing Factory is committed to the health and safety of all our clients, guests and associates. We believe that the comfort of hospitality is needed most of all in challenging times like these. Some of us may not be able to get back home and are in need of a temporary home with a kitchen, now that restaurants and cafés are temporarily closed.

Covid-19 FAQ

I am worried about my health. What should I do?

If you have symptoms, get tested as soon as possible and stay at home.

Can I still go grocery shopping or walk my dog?

If you don’t have any symptoms, you can go and do some grocery shopping or walk your dog. If you keep an arm’s length away from others, the chance that others will infect you with COVID-19 or that you will infect others is small. If you have symptoms, get tested as soon as possible and stay at home.

Can I use public transport?

Only use public transport if there is no alternative. Avoid rush hours and keep as far apart as possible.
From June 1 wearing a non-medical face mask will be compulsory when travelling on public transport.

Is it safe to travel abroad?

For current travel advice, please visit the website of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

For more information about travelling by plane, visit the website of Schiphol Airport.

Which additional housekeeping measures do we take?

We made some adjustments to our housekeeping protocol to ensure both your health and safety as well as that of our cleaners. From now on all employees clean the apartments wearing gloves and replace them after finishing each apartment. Also, we ask our housekeeping team to keep a distance of 1.5 meters from residents and colleagues. This means that our staff may ask you to move to another room of the apartment while cleaning. If you stay in one of our studio’s our Service Desk will contact you to make other arrangements.

If you do not want your apartment cleaned due to distance measures please contact our Service Desk and we will make a new appointment.

If you are not feeling well, your apartment will not be cleaned. Please contact our Service Desk to make other arrangements. If possible our staff can provide fresh towels and linen.
