Joy is back in Groningen, no thanks to the GGD

Joy has finally made it to her student house in Groningen. ‘It feels good not to be limited to one place’, says Joy. She has been able to catch up on her studies in the library. ‘I am still in shock, some moments. I wish the GGD took more responsibility for what happened.’ 

Ukrant reported last week that Joy was taken straight from Groningen Aiport Eelde to the quarantine house in Heerenveen, where the doors were locked behind her. The GGD personnel didn’t clarify that the stay was voluntary and she could have refused to come with them.  

Although they haven’t apologised for the misunderstanding, ‘they did ask me for a meeting’, Joy says, ‘so I could give them feedback on how to make the experience better in the future’. 

She hasn’t decided yet whether she will agree to a meeting. ‘In the end, the GGD didn’t even organise my transportation from the Covid house.’ It was a volunteer who drove Joy and another Spanish student to Groningen.
