Taking vulnerable people into account
The coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 is a constant presence in the Netherlands, but it is less likely to cause serious illness at this point. This is known as the endemic stage. Even in an endemic stage, there are still vulnerable people who have a higher risk of serious illness from an infection involving SARS-CoV-2 or another respiratory virus. For that reason, it is still important to take them into account. Follow these recommendations if you have symptoms.
