It is a preventive way of testing that can ensure that an infection is spotted earlier and can therefore prevent further spread of the virus. Because even if you have no complaints, you can still carry the virus and pass it on to others. Self-testing can help prevent this and, in addition to all other measures, it also promotes a safe learning and working environment.
No, the self-test is not mandatory. You do not have to provide a negative result in order to enter the RUAS buildings. However, we would like to emphasise that it is very important to make use of the self-tests that the government provides. If we all test ourselves preventively, there is less chance of a hotbed of infection at RUAS. In this way, together we can help to reduce Covid-19. The fewer infections there are in society, the greater the chance of relaxed measures, and consequently, more room for education on location. We will therefore all benefit from using self-tests.
On the website selftesteducation.nl you can order each week a set of selftests. They will be sent to your home address.
We ask everyone who is present at school to carry out a self-test twice a week. This is a preventative way of testing, which can ensure that an infection is detected early and thus prevent the further spread of the virus. Because even if you have no complaints and have been vaccinated, you can still carry the virus and pass it on to others. Self-tests can help prevent this and, in addition to all other measures, promote a safe learning and working environment. The self-tests can be ordered free of charge via this website.
The self-test is easy to administer, as the swabs do not need to go deep into the nose. The instructions for administering the test are included in the user guide provided with each test. Please read these carefully.
If the result of the self-test is positive, please contact the GGD to make an appointment for a regular test in a testing centre. In the meantime, stay indoors, do not come to Hogeschool Rotterdam, and try to avoid contact with others as much as possible.
We adhere to the national RIVM guidelines, meaning disinfect hands, regularly wash hands, wear a face mask where it is mentioned, respect each other's space.
The self-tests can be ordered free of charge via this website.
