Informatiebrief basisonderwijs - klasgenoot - Engels
Information letter for primary education – classmate
Please note! This information is important for you.
This letter has been sent to you because your child, while at school, was in contact with another child or an employee who has corona.
What does this mean for your child?
Your child is possibly infected with corona. Children usually do not become very ill as a result. As long as your child does not have any symptoms associated with corona, your child may continue going to school. If, at a later date, it turns out that there are more infections in the class, then the Municipal Public Health Services (GGD) may change their advice on this matter.
You should closely monitor the health of your child during the coming 10 days. If your child develops any symptoms associated with corona, have your child tested immediately. Such symptoms include:
- cold-like symptoms: nasal congestion, a runny nose, sneezing, a sore throat
- tightness of the chest or shortness of breath
- a temperature or fever
- sudden loss of smell and/or taste
Then you should immediately make an appointment for a test at the Municipal Public Health Services (GGD) via 0800-2035. Never do a self-test if you have any symptoms. Your child must stay at home and should avoid having any contact with persons outside your household until the test result is known.
At www.rivm.nl/en/coronavirus-covid-19/video-testing-children-for-covid-19 you can find more information on testing children.
More information or questions
We understand that the situation at hand can lead to concern and questions. Do you have any doubts regarding the symptoms displayed by your child, then you should telephone the Municipal Public Health Services (GGD). Is any member of your family unvaccinated and therefore at risk of becoming seriously ill from corona? At www.rivm.nl/coronavirus-covid-19/risicogroepen you can find more information on this subject.
