COVID-19 measures move with perceived health risk

UT's approach focuses on allowing physical education to continue as much as possible, in line with the Dutch national sectoral plan for higher education, which states that remote education is not optimal, particularly for the wellbeing of students and employees. In the new situation, the Dutch national government will indicate which health risk level is applicable. Each risk level has its rules and instructions, which we have designed specifically for the UT situation.

The full text of the UT approach is available for download online. Please read the document carefully to prepare if the risk level changes. A short version is also available in the form of an infographic, outlining the key points.

Current risk level: dark green

Presently, the risk level is dark green, the lowest level. No immediate measures are required, other than the basic measures. Students and employees of the UT will be informed by email should the risk level change.

Basic measures

Regardless of the current scenario, it is always important to be alert, look out for each other and follow the basic hygiene measures:

  • Wash your hands regularly.
  • Cough and sneeze into your elbow.
  • Ventilate indoors and make sure there is enough fresh air. Some spaces require extra attention. You can read more about this in our December 2021 news item.
  • Get vaccinated and make use of the possibility of getting a booster shot.
  • Stay home if you have symptoms that fit the coronavirus and test yourself with a self-test. This also applies if you have been vaccinated or have had COVID-19. If the test is positive, stay at home for at least five days until you have been free of symptoms for at least 24 hours. People who cannot take a self-test can still get tested at the GGD.
Autumn booster shot now available to anyone

Everyone 12 years and above is eligible for the latest booster shot for COVID-19. You must take action yourself to receive the repeat jab: you can get one with or without an appointment.

Self-tests available for pick-up

If you have complaints, it is important to test, so that a possible infection can be noticed quickly. UT provides free self-tests. You can pick these up during office hours at the service desks of the Horst, Carre, Technohal, Ravelijn, Spiegel, Vrijhof, Bastille, Cubicus, Sports Centre and ITC buildings, or at the Garage building. Make sure you have one or more tests at home, so you do not have to come to the UT when you have complaints.

Isolating

Use the mijnvraagovercorona.nl of the Dutch government to see which isolation measures apply to you, in case your self test is positive or if you have coronavirus symptoms.

Support for remote education

To support educational staff with their online education activities, the TELT team has created a special web page with recommended tools for online education. You can also contact them via telt@utwente.nl.
