Attention: this information has been updated on Thursday April 2 2020.
In December 2019 the outbreak of the coronavirus started in the Wuhan region in China. Since then it is detected in many countries and measures are taken worldwide to prevent the coronavirus from further spreading. Aeres is following the national guidelines of the Ministery of Foreign Affairs (travel advice) and the RIVM, the national Institute for Public Health and the Environment.
Important information about the coronavirus and, more specific, the measures Aeres takes in case of emergency, will be shared on this page. All Aeres schools and locations follow these guidelines and measures.
Contagiousness and symptoms
Patients infected with the coronavirus have a fever and respiratory symptoms, such as a cough, shortness of breath and pneumonia.
Prevent infection or virus spreading:

- sneeze or cough in your elbow, not in your hands;
- use paper tissues;
- don’t shake hands;
- stay at home when you show cold or flu symptoms.
Contact your GP (doctor’s office) if:
