Coronavirus pandemic information

This page gives the latest information about the implications of the coronavirus for students, staff members, prospective students, and others affiliated with the UG.

Latest information (short version)

The UG has been fully open since 22 March. Organizing and partaking in large-scale events is possible again, as are teaching activities in large groups. Staff members can also return to their offices.

We will, of course, keep a close eye on the situation and prepare for any measures that may have to be taken in the future.

Basic rules

The basic rules mentioned below still apply:

  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • Cough and sneeze into your elbow.
  • Stay at home if you have any symptoms, and get tested or do a self-test immediately.
  • Ventilate rooms and ensure that there is sufficient fresh air.
  • Get vaccinated (initial vaccination, booster shot, or repeat vaccination). Some locations offer vaccinations without an appointment.

More information about COVID-19 and COVID-19 policy is available on the RIVM government website.

More specific information and an overview of the most recent updates can be found below.

Information per target group

Other individuals and groups affiliated with the UG should contact communicatie rug.nl for further information.
