Self-quarantine immediately and get tested

Your self-quarantine overview:


dag 4

Start part one of your self‑quarantine immediately and avoid physical contact with others.

This means do not go outside, do not go to the store and do not go to work.

Wait until the person you live with can end the self-isolation.

Today part two of your self‑quarantine begins: continue to stay at home for 10 days, or 5 days if you test negative on day 5.

dag 5

Get tested today for coronavirus. Call 0800-2035 to make an appointment. Have your citizen service number (BSN) ready when you call.

If the test comes back negative, you no longer have to self‑quarantine. But continue to avoid contact with anyone who may be vulnerable for a full 10 days after your last contact with someone with coronavirus.

If the test comes back positive, you have coronavirus. The GGD will provide you with additional information and you need to self‑isolate (information in Dutch).

If you did not get tested on or after day 5 and you have no symptoms, this is your last day of your self‑quarantine.

If you have COVID‑19 symptoms, stay home and get tested again.

Please note: Any special instructions you may have received from the municipal health service (GGD) always take precedence over the advice given here.
