Education minister Arie Slob self-isolate after colleague tests positive

Education minister Arie Slob has gone into self-isolation after a member of his panel got infected by Covid-19.

Slob was alerted of the infection during a discussion in the national assembly on media law. The argument was instantly abandoned and the conference room where it was being organized was cleared. The 58-year-old said he felt ok, but would quarantine himself directly, for at least 10 days as stated by the government’s Covid-19 directions.

He is the first fellow of the Dutch assembly who went into self-isolation due to covid-19 infection. “It was in between the discussion on media law when I was given a note from my staff notifying that a colleague had been tested positive for coronavirus,” he informed that not long after that he was also alarmed by the CoronaMelder app that he has been in direct contact with someone infected by Covid-19. “I made some inquiries and the result is that I must leave the discussion at once and self-isolate, as the rubrics state.”

Slob informed on Twitter that he would book a COVID test as soon as possible, but later further added ‘when I develop symptoms.’ Only people who have symptoms can take a PCR test for Covid-19.
