A lot has happened in recent months. In late 2019, a new coronavirus developed in Wuhan, China. This virus quickly spread to many other countries in the following months. The virus was first identified in the Netherlands in late February. On March 11, the World Health Organization announced a pandemic. On March 12, a press conference proclaimed the measures for the Netherlands, and on March 15 these measures were further scaled up.
Currently, the Dutch government’s advice is to work from home as much as possible, stay home when suffering from colds or flu, and avoid large groups. In addition, schools, day care centers, sports clubs, restaurants and various other businesses and institutions were closed. This has major implications for virtually all Dutch people and also for many of our working people.
For this reason, we have taken several measures in recent days. We work primarily from home. Those who do come to the office coordinate with colleagues so that we can easily keep our distance from each other. Arranged appointments are rescheduled or take place by phone or Skype. In addition, we contacted everyone who works for us to take a comprehensive inventory with how we are doing. We now have a good idea of what the coming weeks will look like for us and our people.
