Dear Idunaren,

On this page we will give our updates regarding COVID-19. You can find updates from the university here, the FSE also sends out updates via email regarding exams and practicals. If you are experiencing any problems with studying you can make an appointment with an academic advisor here.  For study associations it is allowed to organise activities with a maximum of 30 participants. We want to be there for our members, especially in these times, so we are still organising activities in line with the COVID-19 measures of the RIVM. Keep an eye on the website and our social media to stay updated about the activities, you can sign up for activities here.

Unfortunately we cannot welcome you at 't Hok for coffee or tea. We do however have two weekly online coffee hours at Tuesday from 12:00 till 13:00 and Thursday from 13:00 till 14:00 on the GLV Idun Discord server! Come by for a little chat with other Idun members and for sharing ideas, stories, and anything else. If you have any questions or topics you want to discuss with the board outside of these coffee hours, do not hesitate to contact us by sending an email at 

​Love, Board Callisto

The government has decided that the Netherlands will remain in lockdown until at least 9 February inclusive.  The basic rules remain the same. Everyone must stay 1.5 metres apart from people they do not live with. Wash your hands often, including when you arrive somewhere and before eating. And if you have symptoms, no matter how mild, stay at home and get tested. Do not go out and do not receive visitors. If you are infected, ask other people to do your shopping and other errands for you, so that you can stay at home.  

Until at least 9 February 2021 the current measures will continue to apply:

  • Stay at home. You should only go outside to buy essentials, to get some fresh air, to walk the dog, to go to work if you cannot work from home or to provide essential informal care or support.
  • Only receive visitors at home if this is absolutely necessary. If you decide to have visitors, you are urgently advised to receive no more than 2 visitors aged 13 or over.
  • Work from home. Only people whose presence is essential to operational processes and who cannot do their work from home can go to work.
  • Only go outside with members of your household, on your own or with 1 other person.
  • Adults can exercise alone or with one other person, and only outside. Children aged 17 and under may take part in team sports and play matches against children at the same club, but only outside.
  • Use public transport for essential travel only.
  • Do not travel abroad and do not books trips abroad until 31 March.

You can read more info here.

Our advice to our committees is the following:

  • We want to strongly advise to not have your committee meetings with the whole committee in person.

  • We encourage you to make use of an online environment.

  • You could also make groups of a maximum of 3 people to sit together during the meeting with the rest of the committee online, but keep the 1.5m distance in mind.

  • In the future all committees have to make three plans for every activity according to three scenarios, these scenarios are described in the email that was sent out to all committees on the 15th of October

The situation is not as we would like, but together we will make the best of it. It is important to take your responsibility during these times and follow the measures taken by the Dutch government. In the meantime be creative, practical and safe and hopefully we will see you soon. Bear with us!
