Urgent recommendation: wear your own face mask when visiting Erasmus MC

October 2, 2020

The measures announced by the government mean that we regularly need to review our infection prevention measures. We ask for your understanding and cooperation. The recently announced nationwide urgent recommendation regarding the use of face masks in public areas also applies to Erasmus MC.

Erasmus MC visitors are urgently advised to wear their own face masks. 

Patients

If, as a patient, you have COVID-19 symptoms, we ask you to exchange your own face mask for a medical mask on arrival at the hospital. The medical masks are available at the entrance to Erasmus MC.

Visitors

Visitors with COVID-19 symptoms are not welcome at Erasmus MC. Hospital visitors are urgently advised to wear their own face masks. We cannot provide you with a medical face mask, because these are needed for medical use.

Students

All Erasmus MC students are urgently advised to wear their own face mask in public and other areas, including the Passage, the Education Center, and Building Gk. This also applies to self study in the Education Center. The recommendation does not apply to teaching activities in a classroom, laboratory, or lecture hall, unless otherwise stipulated, in which case the lecturer will indicate this and face masks will be provided during the lesson. Furthermore, students with COVID-19 symptoms are not welcome in the faculty or elsewhere at Erasmus MC.
