On April 21, the Prime Minister of the Netherlands informed the nation about the ongoing measures taken to tackle the corona crisis. Youth in the age range to 12 are given more freedom to move since primary schools, day cares and out-of-school cares are allowed to open again on May 11. The relief of the measures has no consequences for higher education.
The situation therefore remains unchanged at Nyenrode. This means working or studying at home and attending online meetings or lectures. On May 20, a new perspective will be communicated from the government about the measures. It has already been announced that secondary education will (partially) start again from June 2. Nyenrode assumes that this will also apply to higher and university education. We are making preparations for this. We expect resumption of educational activities to take place under restrictions and initially on a smaller scale. This will have consequences for the planning and use of the lecture halls and offices. We are also working on this so that when the government allows working and studying on campus again, we can use our locations in Breukelen and Amsterdam in a safe and responsible manner.
