COVID-19 information for students

Important Information

Latest news: 24 August 2021

 

This information is based on the guidelines for the basic requirements for handling COVID-19 at higher-education institutions published by the Ministry of Higher Education and Science on 12 August 2021, on the Danish Health Authority’s guidelines for preventing the spread of disease published on 11 August 2021, and on the Danish Health Authority’s transitional guidelines for the handling of infection in daycare, educational and higher-education institutions published on 6 August.

The general purpose of these guidelines is to prevent the spread of infection by following the health authorities’ guidelines on all campuses and in all departments at Dania Academy. Consequently, we must follow all general advice from the Danish Health Authority to prevent the spread of infection, including advice on cleaning, ventilation, and hygiene. Furthermore, we must focus on testing and isolation in case of symptoms of COVID-19 infection.

You will find information and posters from the Danish Health Authority about the prevention of infection in various places on our campuses.

If you have any questions or have good suggestions, please contact your local program secretary.

General advice from the Danish Health Authority

  • Get vaccinated
  • Stay at home at get a test if you get symptoms
  • Keep your distance
  • Thoroughly air out frequently
  • Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer
  • Keep your home clean, especially frequently used surfaces

In case of infection with COVID-19

Stay at home if you experience even mild symptoms of the disease. Self-isolate and get PCR-test.

Even if you are only feeling slightly affected, or have just a few mild symptoms, you should stay at home to avoid the risk of infecting others.

If you have been in close contact with an infected person, you must self-isolate at get a test. You are a close contact if you have been within a radius of less than one meter of an infected person for more than 15 minutes.

If you are diagnosed with COVID-19, you must inform your program secretary, who will inform the lecturers and fellow students you have been in contact with by e-mail. Please also be aware of the Danish Health Authority’s information material for close personal contacts.

The national testing strategy of the Danish Health Authority aims to identify the people you have been in close contact with. However, by following the authorities’ general advice on social distancing, coughing and hygiene, you will have been in close contact with very few people.

The Danish Patient Safety Authority has set up a contact-tracing unit (“the Corona Tracing Unit”), which offers support in tracing close contacts. If you test positive, the unit will contact you and inform you about necessary precautions and self-isolation.

If a student has been infected, lecturers and fellow students who are not close contacts must be especially aware of any symptoms of COVID-19 and be extra careful to follow general guidelines on hygiene. They may, however, continue to come to the campus.

Common cold

If you have symptoms of a common cold, coughing and sneezing, then stay at home until you have been symptom-free for at least 48 hours. If you get tested for COVID-19 and test negative in the first test, you may come back to the campus when you are feeling well again.

Cafeteria and lunching in groups

If the cafeteria at your campus is open for business, there will be distance markers at the counter, which you must respect to avoid standing too close in line. Further information on

We will post further information of opening hours, menus and so on at the individual campuses.

Further questions

If you need to talk to someone about your well-being or studies, you are always welcome to book an appointment with one of our student counsellors, program secretaries or program coordinators.

 

You can find more information as well as answers to several other questions on the Ministry's website.
