Guidelines for health and safety in relation to COVID-19

The university is continuously monitoring the latest advice and recommendations from the Danish Health Authority, and we will update the guidelines on this page regularly.

The new announcement states that COVID-19 is no longer a public health issue, and from Tuesday February 1 students and staff can return to a normal everyday life at the Universities. All restrictions that apply to higher education institutions will be lifted from that day 

Taking precautions is still the key to everyone’s health. Therefore  it is still important to focus on infection prevention through measures such as cleaning, ventilation and keeping a good hand hygiene.

Opening hours, access, and level of service

We are back to normal opening hours with access to campus 24/7.  

Entering ITU campus

From February 1 it is no longer required to have a valid corona passport for entering the ITU Campus.

Hygiene

Please remember to still wash or disinfect your hands on a regular basis during the day. 

If you are experiencing symptoms

If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 – cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever, chills, muscle pain, headache, or sore throat – you should stay at home. When experiencing symptoms a test is recommended to find out if you have Covid-19.

If the symptoms appear while at ITU, you should leave campus immediately, get tested and self-isolate.

If you have tested positive

If you have COVID-19 you need to self-isolate.
Please see here for detailed information about how you act having tested positive

Close contacts

Students and personnel at ITU are no longer considered as close contacts.

If you are a close contact or you might be, please see here for information and instructions on how to act.

Cleaning

We have increased the level of cleaning to mitigate the disease. 

High-touch surfaces – e.g. tables, doorknobs, light switches, railings, toilets, water taps, sinks etc. – will be cleaned twice a day in all the common areas which are in use. Tables which are only used by one employee will be cleaned once a day. 

You are expected to tidy up before leaving the area you have used.
Dispensers with alcohol hand sanitizer are placed in each end of the floors and in each end of the atrium.

If you use the labs you must follow the cleaning instructions in the lab. Read more here
