General

Just as other organisations Sovicos has to adjust to the new rules around corona. We hope that with these adjustments we can quickly return to the previous situation.

On both locations (Steenwijklaan and Zuiderpark) there have been some adjustments made and new rules are in effect. Below you can read-up on them.

First and foremost is that attending any session is for you to decide upon based on the risk profile. In short, when in doubt then please stay at home. Furthermore, the Sovicos board have provided instructions and the staff will provide steer where this is necessary

As soon as we can eliminate certain rules we will inform you on that. Regarding the rules, as Sovicos we use the national guidelines provided by RIVM, NOC/NSF and Nevobo and will enforce these rules to all who attend the sessions.

If anything is unclear then please ask one of the staff members or send your question to bestuur@sovicos.nl

PS. Perhaps some rules look and feel somewhat superfluous but as Sovicos we have implemented these because:

  • Not everyone attending has the same immune system against the virus. In short, you are not only following these rules for yourselves, but for everyone that is attending.
  • The better we follow these rules the sooner we can remove them.

Kind regards,

Board of Sovicos
