Anyone who has a booster shot of at least a week old or who has already had corona in 2022 does not have to quarantine immediately after close contact with an infected person.

The quarantine advice for people in crucial professions who have not had a booster or infection is being further elaborated.

Other measures

With the record highs of infections of the omikron variant, there is still a risk that healthcare will be overloaded. In addition, the large number of infections and the quarantine rules lead to the loss of personnel. This can lead to major problems in education, public transport, the police and in many other important places.

That is why these measures apply from 15 January:

  • Keep 1.5 meters away everywhere.
  • If you have complaints, stay at home and use a self-test. If you have a positive result, have yourself tested at the GGD.
  • Do not receive more than 4 people from the age of 13 per day at home. Visit a maximum of 1 household per day.
  • Outside it is recommended to be together with no more than 4 people older than 13 years.
  • All catering is closed. Ordering and collection is possible.
  • Cinemas, museums, theaters and concert halls are closed.
  • Essential shops, such as supermarkets and drugstores, are open until 8pm. Excepted services such as gas stations, pharmacies, libraries, driving schools, the notary or lawyer are open.

These measures are in addition to the measures and advice that already apply to everyone at the moment, such as the basic rules, the mask obligation, the advice to do a self-test before visiting others and the advice to work from home. People aged 70 and over are advised to limit their contacts as much as possible, including with children, and to keep 1.5 meters away from them.
