General measures (National Health Service and Security Regions)
As a landlord, DUWO has no leading role concerning the corona virus. That role is for the National Health Service (RIVM/GGD). DUWO follows the strict measures and instructions they set. We also only support when the GGD is involved and requires us to do so.
f you have symptoms of the virus and have a minimum fever of 38.5 degrees, we advise you to stay indoors and to contact the doctor immediately by telephone.
Additional measures DUWO
The counters of our customer service are open. We will of course remain available by phone and also via the contact form. Our service counters will reopen as soon as possible.
It is possible to visit the office to pick up keys to view homes that you have responded to. Vote-ins are also continuing, this is sometimes done remotely, the digital way (ZOOM, Face time,…).
We also welcome new international students who are able to come to the Netherlands. We are currently preparing the arrival of the international students in the summer period and will provide them with the necessary information and instructions.
What can you do yourself?
Of course it is important to observe the guidelines of the National Health Service and the regulations of the Security Regions, but try to keep the life, also of the people around you, as pleasant as possibe. Go out regularly and continue to meet roommates and friends responsibly and appropriately. Avoid crowded places and avoid meeting in large groups when you do so.
If you are just arriving from a country with a high level of corona cases, or from a country with a EU travel ban, you are strongly advised to practice 10 days of self-quarantine. Read more about it here.
In the video below you can see how Mick & Tijn deal with the situation. They live in one house with 28 tenants.
With regard to hygiene, it is of course important to follow the regulations of the National Health Service on a daily basis:
-Wash your hands regularly with soap and water
-Sneeze into your elbow instead of your hands
-Don’t shake hands
-Provide adequate ventilation
