Admission to SDU requires a valid corona passport
New COVID-19 restrictions mean that students, employees and visitors to SDU must be able to present a valid corona passport at SDU’s locations from Monday 29 November. Random inspections will be carried out.
From Monday 29 November, you must either be vaccinated or be able to present a valid negative test for COVID-19 if you show up at SDU.
The Epidemic Committee of the Danish Parliament has adopted new restrictions, which means that employees, students and visitors at higher education institutions are required to have a valid corona passport.
The new restrictions also mean that the validity of a negative COVID-19 test will be shortened. A negative PCR test is now only valid for 72 hours, while an antigen test (rapid test) is valid for 48 hours.
Random inspections at the University
Starting Monday 29 November, SDU will, as a result of the new rules, carry out random inspections to ensure students, staff and visitors have a valid corona passport. The random inspections are carried out by corona guards with clear markings on their clothes.
SDU is awaiting more detailed rules from the Danish Agency for Higher Education and Science. Following this, SDU will spend the next few days preparing specific guidelines for handling the new restrictions at SDU. The new guidelines will be posted at https://mitsdu.dk/en/corona
at the beginning of next week.
Hopefully, the requirement for a valid corona passport in case of in-person attendance at SDU can also help create peace of mind among students, staff and visitors, knowing that everyone else has also been vaccinated or tested recently.
The situation is being closely monitored
SDU’s management appeals to students and staff to continue to follow the authorities’ recommendations and show consideration by following the University’s principles of caution, inclusiveness and trust.
