GGD: What to do when having symptoms?

Due to the current pandemic, all of our activities will be organised differently than previous years. Most of the activities are organised online, while some of them are physical in small groups. During our activities, all the measurements in place are adhered to at all times. The ESN office is also closed until further notice. If you are staying in Groningen and/or need advice or help with something, the ESN Groningen Board is available via the ESN Facebook or via email ( Moreover, if you have to stay in quarantine but you do not have a way to buy your groceries, you can consider ordering your groceries through the delivery services called “Gorillas” or “Flink”.

ESN Events
During the restrictions, ESN Groningen will still host (online) events. Stay up to date here!

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. Furthermore, you can find all the current measures implemented by the government on this website.
