Due to the outbreak of the virus COVID-19 the AUCSA has cancelled all planned events. However as we realise that social distancing can be hard we have decided to organise an adjusted schedule. We are working hard to think of events you can attend online or otherwise with keeping in mind social distancing. The AUCSA has teamed up with Peersupport and the Student Council to fill the coming weeks with activities. As well on this page you will find initiatives related to the outbreak of COVID-19 in which you can participate or contribute.
In the Calendar below you can see what events are upcoming to replace the regular schedule.
march 30, 2020 - april 5, 2020
To stay safe please follow measures and recommendations of the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Public Health Services of Amsterdam (GGD).
Following recommendations imposed from the RIVM, it is suggested to do the following:
Please remember that the virus is the least dangerous to all of us. The most important responsibility we hold now is that we do not become an extra burden on the healthcare system. Furthermore, please try limit contact with elderly people. Coronavirus is for us ‘just a flu’, but for other people it could lead to a serious and life-threatening disease. Be responsible. In doubt: stay home!
