10 September GGD notice to students

Want to avoid getting a call that you have to go into quarantine?

Since café Van Rijn in Nijmegen was closed on 1 September, students are being extra alert to symptoms. Over the past week, 820 young people between the ages of 20 to 25 came to the GGD test streets. That’s double the number of two weeks ago.  

Over 30 students from Radboud University and HAN are currently infected with the coronavirus. Partly because of this, about 170 housemates and close contacts are now in quarantine. A second wave of corona is becoming ever more likely if we don’t work together to uphold the 1.5-meter society. 

So, we’re asking students to hang in there! Don’t forget that when you sit too close to someone, that person may have tested positive. And that could mean a call from the GGD a few days later telling you to spend the next 10 days in quarantine. So be responsible and enjoy each other’s company at a 1.5-meter distance!

Thank you very much for your cooperation. 

On behalf of the GGD Gelderland-Zuid corona team

Psychology student Jetske Matthijsse got tested last week: 

"A housemate sent me an app saying she’d tested positive. A day later I woke up with a headache and a strange kind of sore skin. I got tested and I turned out to be positive as well. I now have cold symptoms and I can't taste or smell anything. If you’re young you may not have the most severe symptoms at first, but I'm feeling pretty miserable now. And I have to stay in my student room for days. It’s no fun at all!"
