In the case of COVID-19 at SSE

Should SSE be informed of a student, staff or faculty contracting COVID-19, we will need to act fast to minimise contagion. The sick person is required by Swedish law to be active in contact tracing.

​I am living with someone who tested positive for COVID-19

From October 12, 2020 residents of Stockholm County must self-isolate for a week if they are living with someone who has confirmed COVID-19. If you must self-isolate you will be contacted by a Test and Trace team from Smittskydd Stockholm, the treating doctor of the sick household member or by the sick household member themselves as discussed with their doctor. You will receive information on what to do.

If someone in your household has tested positive for COVID-19 and you need to self-isolate, you should contact your manager and inform them of the situation. If you do not have the possibility to work from home, you can apply for quarantine allowance (in Swedish: smittbärarpenning) from the Swedish Social Insurance Agency (this only applies for people registered in Sweden and having a valid doctor's certificate).

For the latest updates and information, visit the Public Health Agency of Sweden and Region Stockholm.​
