Alternative Title: How to Return Your Under Four Year Olds to Daycare Once They’ve Been Kicked Out Because of the COVID Rules
For those of you who have been following along at home, the result of my covid test on Tuesday is negative. The twins got to see their doctor this morning. And, miraculously, the daycare had room for them.
The testing center I went to this afternoon is outside of the Groningen city center and accommodates car parking as well as the typical bike / scooter / motorcycle parking. AND it’s FREE.
You queue up in front, 1.5 metres apart, even in the rain, and while the line looks a bit daunting initially, it goes FAST. Just outside of the entrance are instructions, in Dutch, to maintain the 1.5 metres, use hand sanitizer and wear a face mask.
Just inside the door is a massive vat of hand sanitizer with more Dutch instructions to use the hand sanitizer. In case you missed the previous instructions, I suppose?
And 1.5 metres from there are free face masks with Dutch instructions to put one on, if you don’t have one on already.
THEN instructions in Dutch and English, “Have you sanitized your hands? Put on your face mask? Get in line and maintain 1.5 metres.”
