In response to questions about the developing situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have been monitoring advice from various leading health organisations. We now inform you that the school will follow the instructions of the RIVM (National Institute for Public Health and the Environment): www.rivm.nl
We refer you in particular to the webpage:
This webpage indicates how to act if you suspect you have been in contact with the virus; namely by contacting your general practitioner (huisarts) by telephone. Please read this page and follow the advice strictly.
The RIVM website is also available in English https://www.rivm.nl/en/novel-coronavirus
The text below was taken from RVIM website on 28th February. This is being checked at least on a daily basis.
Contact your family doctor or the local GGD by phone if you:
Have a fever with respiratory problems (coughing or shortness of breath)
And for the past two weeks have been in a country/region with widespread spread of the coronavirus:
– China (including Hong Kong and Macao)
– South Korea
– Italy: the provinces of Lombardy, Veneto, Emiglia Romangna and Piedmont.
Or have had contact with a novel coronavirus patient in the last two weeks.
The GP consults with the Municipal Public Health Service (GGD) if it is necessary to be examined for the novel coronavirus.
