The GGD has scaled up the risk of corona again 'vigilant'’ to 'serious'. The number of positive corona tests rose sharply last week, because people since 1 July can request a test for free when they go on holiday. In addition, the bars and discos opened again. It is now mainly young people who test positive. This has not yet led to an increase in the number of hospital admissions.

The large increase in the number of tests taken, in combination with technical problems at Saltro . laboratory, has caused delays. “GGD Hollands Noorden gets a lot of angry calls from people who have been tested. Although the GGD understands the irritations, would like to emphasize to the organization that it is completely outside the delayed availability of test results. The tests taken were delivered to the laboratory on time. It also makes no sense to call the GGD about this.”
