Please note that all recently infected persons will be contacted by the health authorities in order to trace any people with whom the infected person may have been in close contact. Additionally, the infected person and his/her workplace must assist in the infection tracing. If you have been in contact with an employee or student at SDU who tests positive for COVID-19, as a starting point, you will be informed by SDU if you are close contacts. If you have adhered to the Danish Health Authority’s advice on physical distance, cough etiquette and hygiene, new close contacts at SDU will be rare.
