It’s important for us that you can work while feeling safe and healthy. Because the corona virus is still spreading, it’s good to check if you’re not infected before your shift starts. In collaboration with Spoedtest.nl it’s now possible to book a corona rapid test free of charge. This way you’re guaranteed to have the result within 30 minutes and work your shifts with peace of mind.
When can I test via Spoedtest.nl?
You can do a free test via Spoedtest.nl if you have a shift planned and you also have (mild) symptoms or if you have received a report in the CoronaApp or have been in contact with an infected person.
Is the Spoedtest.nl rapid test reliable?
Yes, the rapid test is reliable, but slightly less sensitive than a PCR test. The test detects SARS-CoV-2 virus antigens within 15 minutes. The rapid test is CE certified and has been found to be reliable by the RIVM.
Where can I take the test?
Spoedtest.nl has 70+ locations throughout the Netherlands. Check at https://spoedtest.nl/en/ which location is closest to you.
Do not forget to bring your ID or passport to the test location.
How do I make an appointment?

Can I cancel the appointment?
Yes, you can cancel the appointment 1 hour in advance via the link sent in the confirmation email.
How soon will I get the results?
You will receive the results after 30 minutes. This way you can do a test on the day of your shift and you’ll already receive the results before your shift starts. You’ll receive the results by secure email.
Is it mandatory?
No. It’s not mandatory to get tested before a shift. You do this on your own initiative to ensure that you can work at the client with peace of mind. You can indicate to the client that you are going to do or have done a rapid test. This gives both you and the client certainty.

Your data will be processed in accordance with the requirements set by the government and deleted within 24 hours. Only a positive result is reported to the GGD on legal grounds.
