The health authorities recommend that everyone who is ill with recent respiratory symptoms should stay at home and have a low threshold for getting tested. This also applies to those who are vaccinated.If you have recent respiratory symptoms such as fever, coughing, a sore throat or are in a poor general condition, you should stay at home. Students and employees with residual symptoms and a good general condition may attend teaching activities and work at the study location but should have a negative Covid-19 test.
