If you test positive for COVID-19, you no longer have to self-isolate. The guideline for self-testing if you have symptoms has also been discontinued as of 10 March 2023. 

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.
