Tightened corona measures were announced in the cabinet press conference on September 28, 2020. These measures take effect on September 29 and are valid for three weeks. In response to this, the following applies within the Aeres organization:
- The educational activities will continue as we have done to date. Where this takes place on location, the teaching staff and the necessary support staff are present.
- Other employees who are not necessary for the primary process will work from home unless there is no other option.
- The Aeres organization is reluctant to organising meetings outside of education, especially if non-essential travel movements have to take place. A maximum group size of 30 people always applies.
- The advices of the GGD and RIVM will be followed with regard to testing for corona and / or any necessary home quarantine.
The guidelines of the RIVM are leading and in addition, the educational institutions follow the protocols for each sector. We remain vigilant, with the aim of always creating a healthy learning and working environment for our pupils, students, course participants and employees.

Much attention to ventilation
The situation around corona has made it clear that good air quality is important in spaces where people learn and work. Aeres focuses on this topic in order to provide a safe working climate at the educational locations.
Each building has its own ventilation options. Where air treatment takes place, incoming air is filtered, after which it is also extracted and discharged outside. So there is no recirculation of "used" air. The mechanical ventilation is set in such a way that it runs at full power 24/7.
Locations without air treatment have the option of opening windows. Here the advice is followed to open windows regularly to provide adequate ventilation.
With these measures, Aeres ensures a continuous supply of fresh outside air and a rapid removal of used air, which is important to prevent possible virus spread.

Until 1 September 2020, there will be no internships, excursions or study trips for students within Aeres, even to countries for which the travel advice has been relaxed. As of September 1 it is only in certain cases possible to travel for work or study purposes. We always follow the recommendations of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in our travelling policy. This means that it is not allowed to travel internationally to countries that are marked as a red or orange zone for travel. If you would like to travel to a country that is designated as a yellow zone for travel, you will have to discuss this with your teacher.
In case of a lockdown of a country Aeres will not be responsible for costs of return or other costs that are related to the lockdown.
