  • Open windows and doors and ventilate your home regularly. Avoid being too many people together indoors.
  • Cough or sneeze into your sleeve
  • Wash your hands often or use hand sanitizer
  • Clean thoroughly and regularly, especially surfaces that are touched by many people

Have you been in close contact with a person infected with COVID-19?

Should new cases of infection occur at SDU, you as a student will be informed if you have been in close contact with the infected persons in connection with activities planned by SDU.
