University Guidelines

The University is deviating from the government advice in the following way:

Get tested!

  • First off, getting tested is free
  • If you develop mild symptoms (cough, cold and/or fever) contact the local
  • authorities (GGD)
  • There are two ways to get tested:
  • What to do after you got tested?
    • While waiting for the results you are advised to stay at home
    • The results will come back within 24 to 48 hours
    • If you tested positive the GGD will contact you directly
    • If you tested negative you will receive a call by the national call centre
    • Inform others that you were in close contact with about your result, so
    • they can act accordingly.
