On Tuesday evening 25 February, it was announced that a German man was tested positive for COVID-19. He would have been in the Netherlands last week. Therefore, the Municipal Public Health Service GGD immediately started tracing the people he had been in contact with. 

In the course of last night, contact tracing revealed that the man had been in Limburg during the weekend of 8 and 9 February. This is more than a week earlier than the symptoms developed in Germany. During this stay in the Netherlands, the man was not ill or contagious. This means that there is no need for further contact tracing for this stay in the Netherlands.
