9. Covid-19-preventative measures include the following:

  • Clean your hands often. Wash your hands with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Maintain a safe distance from anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
  • Wear a mask at all times while on campus.
  • Ensure you keep a distance of 1.5m from the next person while on campus.
  • Don’t touch your eyes, nose or mouth.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with your bent elbow or a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
  • Stay home if you feel unwell.
  • If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention.
  • Calling in advance allows your healthcare provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This protects you and prevents the spread of viruses and other infections.

Masks can help prevent the spread of the virus from the person wearing the mask to others. Masks alone do not protect against COVID-19 and should be combined with physical distancing and hand hygiene. Follow the advice provided by your local health authority.

It is compulsory for students and staff of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences to use the self-developed PowerApps Daily Monitoring Tool for access at any of the SU buildings, including residences and other accommodation as well as to university transport to clinical sites. You can access the tool:

You have to show your Green Clearance GRANTED notice to security to access the campus building/s. Staff will also be required to use their access card so that the University are able to produce a list of daily attendees. Please note that visitors will be screened, and they need to fill in the visitor’s form.
