Do I have to inform Aeres if I am infected or if someone I live with is infected?
If you are personally infected, or infection is suspected, please contact the educational institution (pupil/student) or your supervisor (employee) by phone and report sick in accordance with the usual procedure. In accordance with privacy laws, you don’t have to say why you are reporting sick, but please do so in this case to prevent the virus from spreading further.

Aeres follows the guidelines of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, whereby certain zones are indicated with colour codes (green, yellow, red or orange).
Can I travel to an area where avoiding travel is recommended for private reasons?
The RIVM strongly recommends you to not do this. You must be aware that you can endanger the health of colleagues, pupils/students and others by travelling to these areas.
Can I travel abroad for work or study?
Aeres also follows the advice of the Dutch government with regard to its travel policy. As a result, it is currently possible to travel for work or study to countries designated by the government with the codes 'green' or 'yellow' at the time of departure. There is no travel to countries with the red or orange codes. An up-to-date overview of the color codes per country can be found here.
For students who are staying abroad, or who have booked a trip, they themselves bear the risk with regard to any costs when the code of a country changes from green or yellow to red or orange.
