Handling symptoms and infection among staff and students at ECON

Handling symptoms and infection among staff at ECON

The ECON management group has decided on a local procedure in order to handle cases of infection among department staff effectively and rapidly. The ECON local response team consists of:

If you test positive for COVID-19, you are strongly encouraged to inform your head of section, the head of department and the head of department secretariat immediately, and they will initiate the necessary steps such as contact tracing, cleaning and communication. 

Please read the guide from the Danish Health Authority: What to do if you test positive for novel coronavirus  

If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you must stay home until you are well even if the symptoms are mild. If you start having COVID-19 symptoms at work, go home as quickly as possible. Stay home until you have been symptom-free for 48 hours, or until you test negative for the virus.
