Eindhoven Airport is prepared and has contact with local authorities such as the Gezondheidsdienst (Municipal Health Services, or GGD) and Rijksinstituut voor Volksgezondheid en Milieu (National Institute for Public Health and the Environment, or RIVM) about the situation and measures currently being taken. We will always use the infectious disease control scenario, work closely with RIVM and GGD and follow their advice. Based on advice issued by the GGD, we advise travellers to prioritise general hygiene *, just as you would toward against other flu viruses. For instance, wash your hands thoroughly, cough and sneeze into the inside of your elbow or use tissues. The RIVM also advises residents of the province of Noord-Brabant to limit their social contacts in the event of a cold, cough or fever.
RIVM indicates that checking travellers arriving at airports such as Eindhoven Airport is not an appropriate measure. If travellers were currently checked for fever, people with flu or a cold would be detected. According to the national guidelines, wearing a surgical face mask at the airport is only necessary for medical personnel if they work with patients (* link in Dutch only).
Eindhoven Airport works in close collaboration with airlines, handling agents and other partnercompanies at the airport and of course we share information with eachother.
