I have no symptoms, but would like to do a self-test. Where do I get one?
You can either buy these at drugstores or order a kit for free: https://www.zelftestonderwijs.nl/. You need your UU login details to order a kit.
I have symptoms of coronavirus. What should I do?
Self-quarantine immediately in your unit. If you have symptoms such as a cold, cough, fever or sudden loss of smell or taste, you need to get tested to see if you are infected with coronavirus. Read more on the RIVM website.
If you experience severe symptoms like fever and shortness of breath, your unit mates must also remain quarantined in the unit untill the test result is known.

Where are the GGD testing sites in Utrecht?
You can choose a specific testing site when you make an appontment. The largest one in the city of Utrecht is at Jaarbeurs P2, Truus van Lierlaan. The closest testing site is Bolognalaan 10, University Medical Centre (UMC), Utrecht Science Park.
You will receive the result within 48 hours.
What should I do if I test negative for Corona virus, but still have symptoms?
You and your unit mates can go out again and back to work/class. Observe hygiene and social distancing guidelines very carefully; a common cold is contagious, too! If at all possible, stay at home until you are symptom-free.
If you arrive from an orange country with a negative test result, you still have to self-quarantine for ten days. You may take a test after the 5th day of quarantine and if negative, you can leave quarantine.
What should I do if I test positive?
If you test positive for corona, the GDD will explain what you need to do, and ask you to alert your recent contacts.
Please contact us immediately via firstname.lastname@example.org, with your tutor in cc. We can then facilitate access to the designated quarantine unit, and buddy support as needed. If you need medical assistance while quarantining, do not go to the doctor or the hospital, but phone the doctor instead.
