What to do in the event of coronavirus infections

4 September 2020

The academic year has now started and we are able to welcome many students and lecturers back into our buildings. However, this may mean that we will have to deal with virus infections amongst students and staff. Understandably, this raises concerns and questions.

New version of campus protocol online

To address these concerns, the campus protocol has been updated to include information on what to do in the event of an infection.

Inform your study adviser

If you test positive for coronavirus, we strongly urge you to inform your study adviser. You are not obliged to do so, but it is in the best interests of everyone’s health and safety to know if there might be a cluster of infections.

Your privacy ensured

Infections will be not be registered or recorded in a database. Information on infections will only be passed on to our Security Department, in anonymous form, to allow discussions with the Municipal Health Authority about whether additional measures are required. We will not publish overviews of infections on our website or communicate about infections in any other way throughout the university.

Keep to the campus protocol

If everyone keeps to the campus protocol - that is: don’t come to the university if you have any symptoms or if you have returned from a country with a red or orange travel advisory, keep a distance of 1.5 m between people, and wash your hands regularly -  the risk of infection is low. Together, we will make sure the university remains a safe and healthy workplace for our fellow students and staff, and at the same time we will play our part in fighting coronavirus.
