These pages provide you with vital information but also with advice and tools for smooth studies. Use "Recent updates" below to see what information is new.

What to do when you have symptoms or confirmed COVID-19

• When you have symptoms, even mild ones – stay at home until you have been symptom free for 2 days. And get tested at Region Västerbotten. Important! When you have taken a test, you must stay at home and avoid meeting others until your test result has arrived.

Please note! If you have no Swedish personal identity number or only a temporary such number
(one that includes a letter in the last four digits), you must contact your nearest healthcare centre to get tested.

• When COVID-19 has been confirmed – inform your manager or course coordinator. Stay at home for 7 days after falling ill (or test date), whichever comes last. You must also have been healthy and free of symptoms for 2 days before returning to campus.

• When you have a negative test – stay at home until you feel fully well.

If you get instructions from Region Västerbotten or other healthcare providers that differ from this, please follow those instructions.
