Download the app ‘CoronaMelder’

Coronavirus is still around and we need to stay alert, especially right now. The CoronaMelder app can help us all to do this and it is now available throughout the whole of the Netherlands.
Help stop the spread of the coronavirus and download the app on your telephone. The app will warn you if you have been near someone with coronavirus. This way, you can avoid unknowingly infecting people around you. Downloading the app is voluntary.
The app sends you a notification if you have been near someone who later tested positive for coronavirus, and you were around them for more than 15 minutes. But only if that person is also using the app. Read more about why is the CoronaMelder app is needed and how it works on the website

Together, we’ll keep corona under control. On the following website you can find information about what the Dutch government – together with other organisations – is doing.
