Emergency Department


Going home with a possible coronavirus infection

You were seen by Erasmus MC’s Emergency Department team and you have been told that you may go back home. Your symptoms may be caused by the coronavirus, but this is not certain. The coronavirus is transmitted from person to person and the sicker a person is, the more likely the virus will be spread. This is why it is important that you observe a number of rules for living at home. These are necessary for your own safety and to prevent contamination of your household members/family members.


Isolation


You were tested for the coronavirus
If you were tested for the coronavirus (COVID-19), you will receive the results within 48 hours. You will receive the results by phone or by an e-mail that states that your results are ready on the corona test website. You must stay in isolation until you receive the results and perhaps even after that. This means that you must not go outside and limit contact with others to a minimum. Keep at least 1.5 meters distance from others.

You were not tested for the coronavirus, but you do have symptoms
Do you have symptoms like nasal congestion, a runny nose, a cough, sneezing, a sore throat, or a fever? Then you have to arrage to get a corona test at one of the GGD-test locations. Call 0800-1202 to make an appointment and stay home awaiting of the results.

Rules for living for you



When can I end home isolation?


When you can end home isolation will depend on the results of your corona test.

Your test is positive
If your test is positive you may leave the house if you have been free of symptoms for 24 hours and if it has been at least 7 days since your symptoms started. Do you have a weakened immune system? Then you may leave the house if you have been free of symptoms for 24 hours and if it has been at least 14 days since your symptoms started. This means: no fever, no head cold, and no cough. Follow the general advice that currently applies in the Netherlands about school and work at https://www.government.nl/.

Your test is negative
If your test is negative you can end home isolation.

When should you contact your GP/Erasmus MC?



Rules for living for your household members/family members


  • Take your temperature twice a day, preferably with at least eight hours between the measurements.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water. Especially:
    • if your hands are dirty;
    • before preparing and eating food and after touching raw meat;
    • after using the toilet;
    • after cleaning;
    • after coughing, sneezing in your hands, or after blowing your nose;
    • for children: after playing outside;
    • after changing your child’s diaper;
    • after contact with animals.
  • Cough and/or sneeze into your bent elbow.
  • Use disposable tissues.
  • Stay home if you have a head cold, cough/sneeze, sore throat, or a fever.
  • If you have symptoms, ask someone else to do your shopping or get a takeaway for you.
  • Even if you do not have any symptoms, try to stay at home as much as possible. Keep at least 1.5 meters distance from others if you do go out.
  • Avoid physical contact with people from outside your own household. You could use video calls, WhatsApp, and email to stay in contact with others.
  • Also limit visits to vulnerable people, such as the elderly and people with chronic diseases. This could mean that it is better not to visit your own parents or other vulnerable family members.
