Examining Physician

As a preventive measure, the examining physician temporarily only works on the basis of a telephone consultation. Are you ill and cannot work? On the third day of illness you must report sick by telephone to the examining physician. This must be done between 08:00 and 10:00 AM via telephone number 715 8877 or via WhatsApp +599 781 0391. Please state your name, date of birth and the telephone number where you can be reached.

You will be called back for a medical consultation by phone and will then also hear if you should visit the consultation hour by appointment.

Emergency regulation SZW

The consequences of the coronavirus measures are profound for many companies. With the temporary emergency regulation for employers on Bonaire, Saba and St. Eustatius, they can receive a contribution towards labor costs. Independent entrepreneurs or people who were employees, but no longer have an employer because of the coronavirus, can also apply for this emergency regulation.
