I have symptoms that are consistent with the novel coronavirus. What should I do?


Do you have symptoms of a cold or flu, such as a nose cold, sore throat, light cough?

Stay at home. Recuperate. Do not go shopping and do not allow visitors into your home. Let others do your shopping,  or arrange for it to be delivered. Arrange for someone to walk the dog. For household members without symptoms the same rules apply for everyone in the Netherlands. Only when you have had no symptoms for 24 hours may you leave your home.

People working in crucial sectors and critical processes are an exception; they only stay home if they themselves develop symptoms with a fever (discuss this with your employer if in doubt). Read more in the information letter ‘I have a cold, what now?’ and go to government.nl
