I am going to someone with a fragile health

Advice for you

Are you visiting someone with ? Always take a self-test first. Don't meet people with a fragile health if you have symptoms.

You can have coronavirus even without any symptoms. A negative self-test does not guarantee that you are not infected. Do you want to be more certain? Take another self-test the next day.

Tip: follow the basic advice extra carefully in the vicinity of people with a fragile health. Think about keeping distance, washing your hands regularly and coughing into your elbow.

Take a self-test

It is wise to keep a close eye on your health. Make an appointment at the GGD if you have  related to coronavirus and belong to one of the following groups:

  • Residents or employees of a nursing home or other institution that houses people with a fragile health (70 years and older or with an immune disorder) (lci.rivm.nl)(opens external website);
  • Healthcare workers who take care of people with a fragile health;
  • People who live at home or go to day care (70 years and older or with an immune disorder) (lci.rivm.nl)(opens external website);
  • People who are unable to take a self-test, not even with the help of others;
  • People who need a recovery certificate.

Don’t belong to the groups above? Then please take a self-test. Is your self-test positive? Then you need to self-isolate at home.

Are you a healthcare worker and do you have a positive self-test? Then please isolate at home. There's no need to have yourself tested at the GGD.
