From the beginning of 2020 covid-19 has been dominating our society. Student life has changed a lot ever since and as HOST we would like to support you both mentally and practically. The lockdowns and measures ask a lot of flexibility, and the longer covid-19 is present, the harder it is to stay resilient. Please reach out to our staff if you need someone to think along with you. Covid-19 also makes us creative to find ways to stay connected and think of activities that can still find place, whether online or offline.
The corona measures might be confusing in the Netherlands, especially if you don’t understand much of the Dutch language. The most up-to-date information about the measures you can find on https://www.government.nl/. Here you can find the corona measures you will face in daily life or what you need to provide to enter the Netherlands nowadays.
At any time, feel free to contact the local staff. They is willing to answer your questions.
At the beginning of the academic year when international students just came, it was not possible to register the vaccination document to get Dutch QR code. We understand that it needs time to get the QR code. Hence, we decided to welcome students who could show their documents from their home country before they got the QR code to attend a big events (attended by 50 or more people).
For small group or regular meeting, we do not ask your document, but maintain the hygiene rule (ex: sanitize your hands at arrival) and 1,5 meter distance.
Sometimes we organize online meeting combined with physical meeting, or what we call a ‘hybrid meeting’. This hybrid meeting makes it possible for those who show symptoms of flu to still join the Bible study or prayer meeting online and for those who are healthy to join physically.
