Information about HAS University of Applied Sciences related to the coronavirus
* Last update 16 September 2021* More information about HAS University of Applied Sciences and the coronavirus can be found on this page.
On Tuesday 14 September, the government announced further relaxations with effect from Saturday 25 September, including the 1.5 metre distance rule, the face mask obligation and the maximum group size in education. HAS follows the national guidelines. This means that we can once again welcome students more often in our buildings, we will abandon the adapted routing and layout in our buildings and, in principle, be able to offer all company training courses on site again. Working from home continues to be the norm, unless the job requires employees to be at school. We can now take another step towards the 'new normal'. We are very happy about this. At the same time, we are well aware that the virus is still here and that there are still concerns about safe and healthy working at HAS.
Safe & healthy working at HAS
Safe and healthy working is based on the joint responsibility of all employees, students and course participants within HAS to observe the basic hygiene measures: sneezing/coughing into your elbow, washing your hands regularly, giving each other space and using the available hygiene columns. Daily measures include the cleaning of rooms, workplaces, general areas and toilets, with follow-up rounds to clean contact surfaces.
In addition, we ask employees and students to self-test preventively twice a week, especially if they have no symptoms. We also advise course participants to take a preventive self-test regularly. It can help identify an infection in good time, and prevent the virus from being transmitted to others unnoticed.

The health of students, staff and visitors is very important for HAS University of Applied Sciences, that is why we are closely monitoring developments related to coronavirus. We are following the guidelines and instructions from the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and Environmental Protection (RIVM), the GGD Municipal Health Service, the Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs relating to the coronavirus. Of course, HAS University is prepared for various scenarios so that we can take appropriate action if we receive guidelines and instructions to do so.
With the protocol 'Working and studying responsibly at HAS University of Applied Sciences' we create space for a safe togetherness at the HAS. Students, staff, and visitors are urged to adhere to the measures and instructions in this protocol (shared upon visit). It is also mandatory to wear a mouth mask within the HAS buildings.
