What do you do in case of symptoms?

2 October 2020

I am suffering from:

What should you do?

  • cold (runny nose, sneezing, sore throat, coughing)

  • shortness of breath

  • increase in temperature or fever

  • sudden loss of smell and/or taste, without nasal congestion.

 Stay home* and have yourself tested:

  • Serious symptoms in combination with poor health 

 Contact your family doctor.  

 

My housemate is suffering from:

What should you do?

  • mild symptoms, but has no fever and is not short of breath.

You may come to Avans.

  • mild symptoms and has fever and/or short of breath.

 

You and your housemates all stay at home*.
If your housemate's test result is negative, you can come back to Avans.

I am a teacher ... 

What should you do?

  • ...and a student informs me that he has corona. 

 Report this to your supervisor/manager 

  • ...and I see a student at Avans with corona symptoms (coughing, sneezing, snotty). 

 

Address the student and ask him or her to leave the building (unless the student has recently been tested negative for corona).

 

I have been tested. 
My results are …

What should you do?

... negative (= no corona)?

You may come to Avans.

... negative (= no corona), but I now have new or worse symptoms.

 

Stay home* and have yourself tested: 

... postitive (= corona)?

You and your housemates will all stay at home*:

  • Do you have few symptoms? Work or study from home.
  • Are you too ill to work or study? Then report sick.

The Municipal Health Service (GGD) will contact you.**
At Avans, you will inform your own study programme or supervisor so that we can inform fellow students and/or colleagues of your infection. This is anonymous.   

* If you stay at home, please report this to your manager (for employees) or to your course (for students).

** At the GGD you tell  them who you have been in contact with. You will then receive 2 letters from the GGD that you yourself forward to people with whom you have had contact. So it is you who is responsible for informing the people around you.

More detailed information can be found in the update of 4 September.
