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.
