Rotterdam is the first municipality to distribute ‘quarantine packages’ to vulnerable residents


The reason is a motion from the House of Representatives to help people who have to be quarantined. The package consists of practical information, but also chocolate, a puzzle book and a tea package. “Going into quarantine usually happens from one moment to the next. These are severe measures for the elderly or others with a small social network,” says alderman for care, Sven de Langen.

To be eligible for a package, those in need of help must call the Corona social assistance number. More information can be found in a leaflet that is available at test streets. An employee of the institution will bring the support package along and may also be able to offer extra help.

“With the package we can reassure people who are in uncertainty. We show that we are there to help,” says De Langen.

The municipality of Rotterdam expects to distribute hundreds of support packages.

The Corona social assistance service can be reached on telephone number 14010 and is available from 08:00 AM to 08:00 PM.
