One of the new students from the Communication and IT programme has been tested positive with COVID-19.

26 August

The tutor from rhetoric that tested positive for COVID-19 24 August is not infected with corona. An IT error had produced a false positive, but it has now been confirmed that the test was negative.   

24 August

A tutor from rhetoric at the Department of Communication has tested positive for COVID-19. Following advice from the Danish Patient Safety Authority, another tutor and five students have gone into self-isolation and will be tested. The Danish Patient Safety Authority has assessed these six students to be the group of people at risk of infection. There are therefore no changes in the university's planned study start activities.
