When do you have to stay in self-quarantine before you can work on University premises?

Last updated on 19 August 2020

If you are going to work (even partly) on University premises or attend events and meetings in University buildings, you only have access to the buildings if you are not a risk for your colleagues and students.

When are you not allowed to come to the university?

When the government advises self-quarantine, you are not allowed to come to the university. This means that you are not allowed to come:

  • if you have complaints (cough, cold, fever, shortness of breath). To be on the safe side, you can do the RIVM check. If you have complaints, you should get tested for COVID-19.
  • and if you have just been in a region or country coded orange or red,  you are not allowed to work on University premises for 10 days. This measure is subject to regular changes and sometimes there are execptions, so make sure you check the rules that apply on the day you arrive in the country on netherlandsworldwide.nl.
