Dutch Quarantine

If you were super curious about how The Netherlands is handling the quarantining of visitors from other countries, here’s what I know.

Bellana entered the country on Thursday morning, January 13th. She was allotted some time to get from the plane to her final destination, which was something like three hours by train, and then once she was where she was going her quarantine began. On Monday she will take a Covid test. The results will take 48-72 hours to return but once they do (assuming a negative result) she’s free to move about the country.

So worst case scenario (that doesn’t involve a positive test) is that her quarantine starts on 1/13 and ends on 1/20. Note that in The Netherlands they would say her quarantine starts on 13/1 and ends on 20/1, but that’s neither here nor there.

One funny note from our FaceTime. She has changed her weather settings on her phone to Celsius. She said it was currently 2 degrees. Jen laughed and said it was 2 degrees here too. Doing the math, our 2 degrees is -16.7 degrees for her. Brrrr, babie.

So now you’re up to date on the Dutch quarantine process for international travel. I hope you all enjoyed this little lesson.

Dunville

My mother’s parents both came from a nowhere town in Newfoundland called Dunville. They didn’t actually meet until they moved to Boston, but they did live in the same nowhere town.

Actually, I don’t know that it’s a nowhere town. I don’t know anything about it except that there were people named Power there and other people named Murphy.

I also know that Google Maps says the drive, including two ferry rides, would take about 26 hours.

We should go there.
