General measures

You do not need to wear a face mask. However, there are some exceptions where you still need to wear a face mask. Have a look at the current precautions.

You do not need to wear a face mask

Except if you:

  • have symptoms of a cold
  • are particularly susceptible to infections
  • are visiting a patient who is particularly susceptible to infections

Disinfect your hands

  • Disinfect your hands at the hand sanitiser dispensers.
  • Don't wear plastic gloves.

Limit your time in the hospital

Arrive in time, not too early, not too late.

  • Wait as long as possible in your car before your appointment or visit. 
  • Did you come on your bike or on public transport or do you have to wait between two appointments? You can wait a while in the reception hall.
  • After your consultation or visit, go home immediately.

Dropping off and picking up patients

  • The kiss-and-ride area for collecting and dropping off patients, is now situated in the visitors' parking (follow the blue arrows). 
    More about parking at the Gasthuisberg campus.
  • At the Pellenberg campus, the strip in front of the main entrance serves as a kiss-and-ride zone, also for taxi services and secondary transport.

Food and drinks

At the Gasthuisberg campus, patients and visitors can get a drink and something to eat at coffee shop in the reception hall, the cafetaria and in the take-out shops on the gold and limegreen arrow. You can also get a bite to eat and a drink at the vending machines on all campuses.

Check the current guidelines in the cafeteria, coffeeshop and take-outs.

Food, drinks and mouth masks

When you are standing or walking, always wear your mouth mask.

Only when you are seated, you may take off the mouth mask to eat or drink something.
