Update #3 COVID-19

  PLEASE NOTE: these updates may contain outdated information. Please read the latest information.

The Netherlands National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) held a press conference this afternoon (Sunday, 1 March) and has sharpened their advice regarding the coronavirus. UM will follow this advice closely.

Have you recently returned from a coronavirus-contaminated area (mainland China, Taiwan, Macau, Hong Kong, Singapore, Iran or North Italy (Aosta Valley, Trentino-South Tyrol, Lombardy, Veneto, Emilia Romagna, Liguria, Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Piedmont)) AND have any symptoms such as coughing or shortness of breath?

 As long as you have these symptoms, stay home until further notice!

Students who are forced to miss education due to the advice of the RIVM and therefore cannot meet “required attendance” policies will be excused from this requirement. Please note that in the coming days the specific details of UM policy regarding the above will be confirmed.
