Be aware that it can be quite hard to get tested due to a lack of test capacity. If you have mild or severe symptoms try to stay at home and minimize contact with other people untill you can get your test result.
General rules imposed by the Dutch government:
- If you have symptoms, stay at home.
- If you or a housemate has tested positive, everyone living in the house has to stay home.
- Keep 1.5m distance from people other than your own household. A student house does not count as a household, so keep this in mind when going outside.
