Phase II: Green

To keep education going there are 4 phases of measures to reduce infections.

If the number of infections increases, the virus will transition into 'Phase II Green'. The green scenario is based on a situation where the COVID-19 virus has the same impact as a flu virus.

In this situation, there is no immediate need to take measures specifically for education, other than the society-wide commitment to prevention by following basic hygiene measures.

We would like to stress the importance of self-testing. Use the self-tests to protect yourself and the people around you! You can read more about when to test, how to use the tests properly and what to do if a test is positive here. Still have questions? Here you will find a quick and easy answers to all your questions about testing and COVID-19. 

  Students and staff can get two free self-tests per week at the reception of their own faculty or service centre.
