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 A STUDENT AT SSE

I feel sick or want to order a test for COVID-19

These tests are free of charge for all who live, work or stay in Stockholm County. Read more about how to book a test here.

 
If you do not have a Swedish social security number (personnummer) and a BankID, please contact your nearest health center to book the test.
 
To avoid infection, it is important that you do not meet anyone else when you have symptoms of Covid-19.

I have tested positive for COVID-19

If your COVID-19 test confirms that you have an ongoing infection:
  • Stay at home
  • Follow the advice, precautions, and actions recommended by your physician or care unit
  • Contribute to contact tracing procedures (required by Swedish law)
  • Contact SSE at corona@hhs.se​ and please provide us with the following information:
    • Your name and contact details
    • Your movements on campus 48 hours previous to when you started showing symptoms until present (lectures attended, rooms visited, teachers and staff with whom you have interacted)
This information will not be used in any way that makes it possible for others to identify you, but it will help us prevent the infection from spreading further.

I AM A FACULTY OR STAFF MEMBER OF SSE

I have tested positive for COVID-19

If your COVID-19 test confirms that you yourself have an active infection:
  • Stay home and isolate
  • Follow the advice, precautions, and actions recommended by your physician or care unit
  • Contribute to contact tracing procedures (required by Swedish law)
  • Contact HR at charlotte.celsing@hhs.se and please provide the following information:
    • Your name and contact details
    • Your movements on campus 48 hours previous to when you started showing symptoms until present (presence on campus, meetings attended, colleagues and students with whom you have interacted)
This information will not be used in any way that makes it possible for others to identify you, but it will help us prevent the infection from spreading further. HR and the Corona Task Force will activate relevant parts of the corona crisis plan and stay in close touch.​

I AM LIVING WITH SOMEONE WHO TESTED POSITIVE FOR COVID-19

If you are not vaccinated with two doses of vaccine you should:

  • Stay home from work, school, or preschool. However, you may work from home and participate in remote learning.
  • In addition, you must not participate in activities where you will be in contact with other people, such as sports.
  • You must follow special hygiene procedures: Maintain strict hand hygiene (wash your hands), cough and sneeze into your elbow or paper tissue, and not in the direction of other people.

You need to follow the above rules seven days after the infection was discovered. More information at Sveriges läkarförbund.

If you are vaccinated with two doses of vaccine a minimum of two weeks prior to when the infection was discovered and are symptom-free OR have had confirmed COVID-19 within the last six months, you do not have to stay at home or get tested. All persons of the household should:

  • Keep an arm's length of distance to the infected person. If possible, keep the infected person isolated in a separate room.
  • Wash your hands often using soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Always wash your hands before eating, cooking, and after restroom visits.
  • Cough and sneeze in your elbow or paper tissue. Throw the paper tissue away in a bin and wash your hands afterward.
  • Stay vigilant of any symptoms with other household members. The incubation time may vary between 2 to 7 days, sometimes even 15 days. Therefore it is recommended to avoid other people seven days after the infection was discovered.
