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

29 July 2020

Have you come from a country or area that has an orange or red code to work at a Leiden University location? Then you will first have to spend two weeks in quarantine. 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.

You can only visit University premises when:

  1. you have no symptoms (coughing, a cold, fever, shortness of breath). To be sure, you can take the RIVM check. If you have any symptoms, you must have yourself tested for COVID-19.
  2. you have been in self-quarantine for two weeks if you have been in a region or country coded orange or red. This measure is subject to regular changes, so make sure you check the rules that apply on the day you arrive in the country.

New international staff

We understand that the quarantine measure can be difficult for new international staff. If you have any questions about self-quarantine, please contact your supervisor.
