Getting around the UZA safely and efficiently: a few measures explained

  • You always enter through the main entrance. 
  • Wear your own face mask when you come to the UZA (mandatory from 12 years old and recommended from 6 years old). Exception: disabled persons who cannot wear a mouth mask due to their disability.
  • Arrive on time, but not too far in advance. 15 minutes before your appointment is sufficient. This will enable you get through check-in smoothly and will allow us to guarantee sufficient physical distance.
  • Hospital visits are restricted and only if it is really necessary, you can bring up to two companions. Please read the full visiting policy here
  • Postpone your visit to the hospital if you were recently in a risk area, if you have had close contact with an infected person, and/or if you are showing any symptoms.

Do not delay your emergency visit if you need emergency care.

Not feeling well and in need of emergency care? Don't hesitate to come to the hospital. Even if your complaints have nothing to do with COVID-19, a quick diagnosis and treatment is necessary. We have taken all necessary measures at the UZA to ensure that the environment is as safe as possible for everyone who visits our hospital.

Thanks to all the helping hands
