The current lockdown means that, as far as possible, university employees in Aarhus must work from home up to and including 23 August. Employees may come to campus to pick up equipment and materials if needed. Managers are responsible for deciding the extent to which their staff are to work from home during this period.

Furthermore, as a general rule, no events that require physical presence at the university’s locations in the City of Aarhus can be held.

Guidelines for employees and managers: How to handle COVID-19 symptoms and infection at AU

If you are an AU employee with symptoms of COVID-19, stay at home until you are well. Stay at home, even if you have just mild symptoms. If you get sick with COVID-19, stay at home until you have been symptom-free for 48 hours. If you start having COVID-19 symptoms at work, go home as quickly as possible. Stay at home until you have been symptom-free for 48 hours, or until you test negative for the virus.

If you test positive for the COVID-19 virus, tell your manager immediately so that any close contacts at AU can be notified. Your manager will help you clarify which colleagues and students you have been in contact with.
