Corona and housing

My roommate has serious complaints such as a fever. Now what?

In this situation you are strongly advised to stay at home. Your housemate must be tested. You must also stay at home until the results become known. If your housemate does not have Corona, you can resume your activities.

During the quarantine the following applies:

  1. If the obligation to continue pay wages is included in an agency employment contract, the quarantine will in most cases be at the risk of the employer.
  2. If there is an agency work employment contract with agency clause or if the obligation to continue pay wages is excluded in your agreement, the employer does not have to continue to pay the wages if you have not performed any work.

My roommate has Corona. What applies to me?

You are strongly advised to stay at home for ten days. If you also get complaints, you should get tested. During the quarantine the following applies:

  • If the obligation to continue pay wages is included in an agency employment contract, the quarantine will in most cases be at the risk of the employer.
  • If there is an agency employment contract with agency clause or if the obligation to continue paying wages is excluded, the employer does not have to continue to pay the wages if you have not performed any work.

What rules apply to me and my colleagues in our shared accommodation arranged by the employment agency?

When two to nine labor migrants stay in a permanent situation in the same accommodation for at least fourteen days, it is seen as a common household. The RIVM rules for households apply in this situation.

How do we prevent contamination in our shared home?

Together with the landlord, the residents must ensure optimal hygiene. In many cases, the landlord is responsible for cleaning and the residents contribute as much as possible by observing the RIVM guidelines. In common living areas, the door handles, banister and other handles are regularly cleaned. Particular attention is paid to the shared areas such as shower / toilet, kitchen and living room. The landlord provides hand soap and paper towels.

My contract has been ended and I must leave the house. Where can I go now?

People who do not have a home can qualify for emergency care by a central municipality. These are often somewhat larger municipalities with the task of providing shelter.

Here you will find an overview of all central municipalities.

Contact a central municipality and ask where there is a shelter location in your area. It is important that, if there is a (suspected) infection with the coronavirus, you must report this at the entrance of the location. It is up to the shelter, eventually in consultation with the central municipality, to find a suitable place for you.
