Coronavirus disease

– Events canceled until further notice –

Dear Amsterdam International Community,

The COVID-19 coronavirus has increasingly become a public health concern for every nation.

As a responsible community of people as we are, we feel that our events could create unnecessary risks for the attendees.

Moreover, we do not feel that it’s the appropriate time to celebrate while other countries are facing dramatic circumstances and millions of people are forced to be in quarantine, isolated at home.

For these reasons, we have decided that we will NOT be holding any more events until further notice.

For those of you, who have purchased a ticket for any of our events, we are happy to offer you a full refund.

Hopefully we’ll all be able to get together soon to celebrate the arrival of Spring.

In the meantime, we hope everyone will take care and stay well!

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak

On 7 January 2020, Chinese authorities identified the outbreak of a new coronavirus known as COVID-19 (from its original name 2019‑nCoV: 2019 Novel Coronavirus).

Since then, global experts and scientists across the world have been working intensely to learn more about the virus.

In particular, the most effective ways to help take appropriate precautions in this situation and when unsure about Coronavirus symptoms.

Coronavirus in the Netherlands

As proud residents of the Netherlands, we should know that the new “coronavirus (COVID-19) in the Netherlands, is categorized as A disease.

This means that the Minister of Health provides leadership in the fight against it.

The National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) is coordinating the effort and is staying in contact with the municipal health services (GGDs).”

Coronavirus and Amsterdam International Community

Amsterdam International Community has canceled all events until further notice.

Please make sure to take the necessary measures and implement the advice given by the scientific community.

This is meant to protect everyone’s health against the disease.

Every day, we all learn something more about COVID-19 so the best advice is to stay up to date, especially if you have a very active social life or travel (Dutch) often.

Spread of misinformation, fake news (sometimes even from media), disinformation and myths are the worst advisers during health emergencies.

Please take the time to familiarize yourself with Coronavirus disease, help educate others and be of good example for every one.
