Somebody in my social circle has been tested positive for COVID-19? What should I do?
If you have been close to someone who has tested positive for corona, you might be infected. In that case, you should stay at home and be tested.
See more on the Danish Health Authority’s page about ‘close contacts’
However, if you have not been close to the infected person, but someone in your social circle (e.g. a girlfriend or roomie) has been close to an infected person – then you can continue to attend classes and do not need to go into self-isolation/be tested. However, you should pay attention to any symptoms.
Not sure whether you have been in close contact with an infected person? Then you can contact the Danish Health Authority.
You can also write to firstname.lastname@example.org but you must write from your Academy email or a secure email, as we are not allowed to exchange personal data via regular private email. If you can’t do this, please provide your phone number and we can phone you instead.
Can I come to the Academy if I have a cold/flu and a negative Corona test?
If you feel sick, have flu symptoms/fever or feel hot/uncomfortable, stay home until you are well again. You must not come to the Academy if you are ill, because you can still infect others in your class. If you are ill, stay at home - corona or not.
If you do have symptoms, please get tested according to the guidelines. If you have a negative PCR test, but are still ill, then wait until you feel better before meeting up at the Academy. You decide when you feel well enough to come.
Follow the guidelines from your programme concerning notifying us of any illness.
Can I enter the Academy if I don’t have physical teaching?
Yes, students can come to the Academy for study groups and other study related activities during the opening hours (8-16 on weekdays, Friday only between 8 - 14. Weekends are closed).
I have been sent home from my internship. What should I do?
If students in internships are sent home by a company, they must work on assignments for the company and follow the company’s guidelines. The internship period will not be extended.
What about exams if I get symptoms or must self-isolate?
For pre-exam symptoms:
Do not show up for a physical exam if you have symptoms. If you experience symptoms on the day of the exam you must follow the guidelines on self-isolation and stay at home, and you must immediately contact your programme secretary or programme administration.
In case of corona - or close contact with an infected person - before the exam:
If you have to self-isolate because you have corona or are in close contact with someone who has corona, you must must contact your programme secretary. Your programme will decide if it is possible for you to do your exam online, or if you must wait till the next re-exam is scheduled without losing one exam attempt.
You must send a short email to your programme secretary with the reason. Use your Academy email if you can. The programme can ask for additional documentation if this is necessary.
If your exam requires physical attendance (primarily laboratory exams at Hasselager Allé) and cannot be conducted online, you can apply to do a re-exam without losing one exam attempt.
If you have corona and symptoms that prevent you from completing your exam online, you must apply to your programme secretary /programme administration for sick leave and document this with a doctor’s certificate, like you would for any other illness.
I am going on holiday outside of Denmark. What should I do?
If you travel outside of Denmark to a country or region that is orange or red, i.e. where the authorities advise against travel, you must follow the guidelines on self-isolation and testing on your return. All days of self-isolation must be completed before you are allowed to attend teaching at the Academy. Time periods for self-isolation and the list of countries change continuously, so you need to stay informed yourself.
