NL-Alert with rules for coronavirus prevention

On the morning of Sunday 22 March, an NL-Alert (on people’s mobile phones) was sent out to remind people of the main rules for preventing the spread of coronavirus. The alert was sent out throughout the Netherlands by the National Crisis Centre in The Hague.

The NL-Alert once again reminded people of the measures they should take to prevent the spread of coronavirus. The alert read as follows: ‘Follow central government’s instructions: keep 1.5 metres’ distance! Stay at home if you are sick or have a cold. Protect yourself and those around you. Together against corona. Keep your distance from others.’

In order to reach as many people as possible, the NL-Alert is also displayed on many digital billboards and departure time displays for public transport. Help and inform those around you so they know what’s going on and what they need to do.
