As an employer, you can do this against the Coronavirus
It is probably a matter of time before the coronavirus also reaches the Netherlands. The consequences can be drastic, even for companies. How do you approach that, and what are the rules?
To start with the answer to the last question: there are none. In particular, there are many recommendations. The most important are those of the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM). They do not have separate tips for companies. Their advice applies to everyone.
These are the most important:
Wash your hands regularly.
Cover and sneeze on the inside of your elbow.
Use paper tissues.
Anyone who has complaints, such as coughing or sneezing, should contact the doctor by telephone. After that decision is made as to whether testing is necessary, and if so, a test follows.
Doctors are obliged to report if they suspect an infection. Until the test result is there, the person must be in quarantine.
