Find information on coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Amsterdam

Since the outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the Dutch government and municipal health services have released information in English on the current situation. 

The National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) and the City of Amsterdam are working closely with healthcare providers to minimise the impact of the disease in the Netherlands, and to communicate information regarding its status to residents and visitors. 

Comprehensive information is available on the RIVM website, including a guide to symptoms, when to contact a GP, Q&As, travel advice and updates from the World Health Organisation. A national information hotline has also been created to answer questions, which you can reach on 0800 1351. 

The Dutch Government and the City of Amsterdam also offer a variety of resources to support businesses, freelancers and entrepreneurs during this time.
