Four employees at a single primary school in the Limburg town of Eygelshoven were diagnosed with Covid-19, local broadcaster L1 reported, based on information from municipal health service GGD Zuid-Limburg. On the basis of these results, the school is now considering how to proceed, with primary schools set to transition back to their full classrooms on June 1.
The number of disease infections in the Netherlands decreased considerably since the measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus were implemented, according to figures knowledge institute Nivel received from general practitioners, AD reports.
The GGD health services in the Netherlands aren't prepared to do more so-called contact research, to find out exactly who a patient with Covid-19 had contact with and warn them that they may also be infected, once primary schools reopen on Monday. Most GGDs are working on their own plans to increase their capacity, but they are not sure what exactly is expected of them as there is no national plan for contact research, NOS reports after surveying all 24 GGD regions.
