About COVID-19

In December 2019 the outbreak of the coronavirus started. As everyone knows, the virus spreads quickly and has officially been labelled a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO).

To contain the coronavirus in the Netherlands the Dutch Government has taken additional measures starting from the first of July. What does this mean:

covid19 measures

  • Always stay 1.5 meters away from other people.
  • Avoid busy places and travel outside peak hours if possible.
  • If you have symptoms, get tested as soon as possible and stay at home.
  • If someone in your household develops a fever, all members of the household should stay home.
  • If you have travelled to a region that has an orange travel advisory due to coronavirus, or if you have been in contact with someone who has tested positive, you should self-quarantine.

 

Gatherings

  • Have no more than 6 visitors in your home or garden at one time, this does not include you and the people who live in your home and/or children under the age of 13.
  • Parties for larger groups should be held in party halls. The following rules apply:
    • Everyone must have their own seat.
    • When guests arrive they will be asked about their health.
    • Guests must be asked to provide their phone number and address.

 

Transport

  • Passengers will be required to wear a non-medical face mask on trams, buses, water buses, metros and trains. In stations, on platforms and at bus and tram stops face masks are not required, but people must stay 1.5 meters away from others. Passengers who do not wear a face mask after 1 June can be fined €95.
  • For other shared forms of transport, such as taxis, passenger vans and coaches, passengers must reserve and must undergo a pre-travel health check. Non-medical face masks must also be worn.

 

Children and young people

  • Children/Teenagers aged 17 and under do not have to stay 1.5 metres away from other children/teenagers. This also applies in childcare, primary school settings and secondary school settings.
  • From the start of the new academic year, more on-site educational activities can take place at schools for secondary vocational education (MBO) and higher education institutions (universities and HBO). Everyone in these settings must stay 1.5 metres apart.

 

New regional measures for six safety regions in the Netherlands

The extra measures apply to the six safety regions that are currently seeing the sharpest increase in coronavirus infections, starting from September 20, 06.00 p.m. These are Amsterdam-Amstelland, Rotterdam-Rijnmond, Haaglanden, Utrecht, Kennemerland and Hollands Midden.

3 general measures apply to all 6 regions:

  • Establishments with a catering licence must bar guests from entering and stop all music at midnight. These establishments must close at 01:00.
  • Groups of more than 50 people are banned. This means, for instance, no parties, receptions or outings for groups of more than 50 people. This restriction applies both indoors and outdoors. There are some exceptions, such as demonstrations, religious gatherings, funerals, and dance and theatre.

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.
