Confirmed Covid-19 cases among students
It was last week that the University of Skövde became aware of some cases of covid-19 infection among students at a student housing in Skövde. To reduce the risk of spreading, the County Medical Office Västra Götaland and the health center, “Vårdcentralen Centrum” decided on Covid-19 quick tests for certain students.
It was the County Medical officer who decided who had to get tested. The results show that there are confirmed cases of Covid-19 among students in one student housing and that infected students have been in close contact with other people at another student housing.
Due to the confirmed cases of Covid-19, the University and the County Medical Officer held an information meeting for affected students on Monday evening.
Students who, in connection with teaching at the University, may have been in close contact with one of the students who have tested positive for Covid-19, receive information from their Course Coordinator or someone else from the school. You will get information about what you must do when it comes to testing and social contacts.
The University acts according to the Action Plan in the event of a confirmed Covid-19 infection within the University and on directives from the County Medial Office. The University of Skövde is now taking a number of precautions to help prevent the continued spread of infection. If you are affected by such a measure, you will receive information about this from your course coordinator or from someone else at your school.
At 1177, you can make an appointment for a Covid test at a health center in Skövde. The test is free of charge.
We would like to remind you that it is very important that you keep your distance from other people, both indoors and outdoors. And that you muststay in your home if you do not feel well.
