Crash Courses in Infection Prevention and Control

The crash courses are two short films that take you through the most important infection prevention measures at INN University. They will tell you what to do when you arrive on campus. The films are intended as an introduction to the subject and you will have to check the relevant details in the infection control guide yourself. The infection control guide will be available in English in August.

It is necessary to have two different films, as the role of the employee will slightly differ from the role of the student. It is important that you watch the films before you arrive at your campus.

When is it OK to be on campus?

  Description What this means for you What this means for those around you

Clear situations

 

 

I have mild symptoms of respiratory infection Stay home and get tested Those who came in close contact with you can arrive on campus
I have mild symptoms of respiratory infection, but have tested negative for Covid-19 Stay home until you have been symptom-free for 24 hours Those who came in close contact with you can arrive on campus
I have tested positive for Covid-19 (Confirmed case) You will be placed in home isolation by the municipal health services. Follow their instructions. Those who came in close contact with you will be quarantined for 10 days.

Situations that require special consideration

 

 

I have severe symptoms of respiratory infection.

The municipal health service has said that it is likely that I am infected with Covid-19. This has not been confirmed with a positive test result.

 

Regardless, stay home and get tested.

The municipal health services might also ask you to stay at home and treat the disease as if you were infected with Covid-19.

 

The municipal health services can order those who came in close contact with you to be quarantined until there is a test result.

I am in close contact with a person who had to get tested because the person came in close contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid-19.

The person I am in close contact with is still waiting for a test result.

 

INN University will carry out an assessment with regard to the risk of infection. If you have upcoming work assignments that involve contact with many other people, INN University will ask you to stay home.

You can come to work as soon as the person you are in close contact with has tested negative for Covid-19.

The definition of close contact:

  • “Close contact” refers to persons who have had close contact with a person who has been confirmed to be ill with Covid-19, from 48 hours before the person displayed the first symptoms (for asymptomatic cases – from 48 hours before the performance of the Covid-19 test), and until the person is allowed to break isolation.
  • This includes household members and “other close contacts”
  • By “other close contacts” is meant:
    • Indoors: less than 2 meters’ distance for more than 15 minutes in connection with a person who is confirmed to be sick with Covid-19.
    • Outdoors: less than 2 meters’ distance for more than 15 consecutive minutes, face-to-face, with a person who is confirmed to be sick with covid-19.
