It may also be the case that they ask you whether you have visited a high-risk area, live and/or work in the province of ‘Noord-Brabant’ or if you have been in contact with a corona patient. If this is the case, you should also report this to your Randstad contact person. We will then determine what action should be taken together with you and your client.
As your employer, we consider it important that you feel well at work. Are you concerned about the coronavirus? Or would you like to share or discuss something? If so, please do not hesitate to contact us.
