COVID-19 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT COVID-19

At Esbjerg Gymnasium we follow the Danish Health Authority’s’ guidelines as stated on the website www.coronasmitte.dk

 

FACEMASK /VISOR

A facemask/visor must be worn when moving around the school, including staying in common areas. Facemasks/visors do not need to be worn in your own classroom or when sitting at your own table in the canteen.

 

SEPARATION

Group work areas, etc. are sealed off. You may only stay in your own class-/ team-room, or at your regular table in the canteen.

 

ACTIVITIES

All voluntary activities, social events and other activities across years or teams are cancelled, postponed, or run virtually.

 

TEST

Everyone is encouraged to get tested twice a week. This also applies to those vaccinated and previously infected.

However, the call does not apply if you have been infected within the last 12 weeks. From mid-January, free test kits will be handed out at the school.

 

SYMPTOMS / INFECTION

Self-isolate if showing COVID-19 symptoms or a positive test result. Follow the national guidelines at www.coronasmitte.dk

It’s no longer mandatory to contact the School.
 

You are not allowed to attend school if tested positive for COVID-19. Students' violation of this rule may result in expulsion from school.

 

When you have been symptom-free for 48 hours, you are allowed to attend school again. In case of infection without symptoms, you attend again after 7 days.

 

The corona pass is suspended for 14 days after the infection has been detected. It usually means you will attend school for approx. one week of schooling without a valid corona passport. During that period, you must present the date of your positive test result.

 

OTHER CONTACTS

(if, for example, a classmate is infected)

You are encouraged to take a quick test (possibly self-test) immediately and on the 4th day after the last contact with the infected person. You should not go into self-isolation.

 

INFECTION IN YOUR OWN HOUSE

(= close contacts)

If somebody in your household gets infected.

If you are in close contact because you live with a person who is infected, or you have similarly been close to an infected person (eg. a girlfriend or overnight guests):

Go into self-isolation immediately

Get tested on days 4 and 6 after you were last in contact with the person infected. The test on day 4 must be a PCR test. The test on day 6 should be a quick test at this time.

You can leave your self-isolation after a negative response to the PCR test on day 4.

 

If you have had Covid-19 within the last 12 weeks (from the date of positive test) do not go into self-isolation or get tested unless you get symptoms.

 

If you cannot keep your distance from the infected person, it is also recommended that you go into self-isolation, even if you have received all 3 shots or have had Covid-19 within the last 12 weeks.

 

ABSENCE

Absence is registered according to the general rules.

It is not possible to follow the teaching online, and thus get credited absence.
