Phase IV: Red

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

If the number of infections increases, the virus will first transition into 'Phase II Green'. If infections continue to increase, 'Phase III: Orange' and 'Phase IV Red' will follow. 

In ' Phase IV Red' the following measures will apply:

Additional measures

  • Use a self-test twice a week to protect yourself and others
  • Extra attention to high-risk groups for severe symptoms from COVID-19 and the social function of education
  • Educational institutions are open but with far-reaching contact-reducing measures such as walking routes and wearing face masks 
  • Maximum 50% capacity of students and teachers in rooms and on site
  • Maximum spread of teaching activities across time and space
  • Working from home is advised for employees 
  • Spread teaching activities across the day, outdoors where possible

Travel & international mobility

International travel for students and staff
UM looks beyond national borders in terms of research and education. In doing so, UM takes into account government guidelines and general travel advice issued by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Guidelines for study-related travel for UM students can be found here. Staff can find the Guidelines for business trips for employees here on intranet.

Work and study from home

In Phase IV Red, we all work and study from home again. In doing so, we all need to adapt both our work and our home situation, and balance our work and private lives. In order to support you, we will provide you with information about working and studying from home if this measure is put into place.
