How DIS Is Handling COVID-19

DIS Kollegiums COVID-19 Updates

DIS is experiencing significant changes due to COVID-19

We Aim to Create a Safe and Secure Environment

It is important for us that residents feel safe living in a DIS Kollegium or DIS Residence. On this page we have collected important information about how DIS is handling the COVID-19 situation at our DIS Kollegiums and Residences.

Social Events

All social events need to be created as ticketed events in the DIS Navigate app, so we can track and trace participants should anyone test positive.

Is There Extra Focus on Cleaning? Is Hand Sanitizer Available?

DIS provides hand sanitizer in all common areas and encourages residents to use it regularly. In addition, all common areas at Kollegiums are cleaned twice a week, including stairwells, elevators, common rooms, laundry rooms, and some common kitchens.

What Should I Do if I Test Positive for COVID-19?

It is important that you inform DIS immediately if you test positive for COVID-19 by writing to diskollegium@dis.dk. We will then attempt to limit the risk of cross-infection between residents and DIS staff.

Also, it is important that you read the Danish Health Authority’s pamphlet on what to do if testing positive for Covid-19.

If You Live in an Apartment With Private Kitchen

If you live in your own apartment, you should self-isolate until your symptoms have disappeared. This means no use of any of the common facilities (laundry room, common room, common kitchen, elevator, stairwells, etc.). Once you have been free of symptoms for 48 hours, you are free to go outside again.

If You Live in a Shared Apartment

If you live in an apartment with other residents, you must inform and coordinate your quarantine with the apartment/floor’s other residents. Common areas may not be used during your quarantine (kitchen, bathroom, living room), unless otherwise agreed upon.

Due to the increased risk for cross-infection in shared-apartments, if at all possible, DIS asks that residents testing positive for COVID-19 isolate themselves somewhere other than the residence during their illness. If this is not possible, the infected resident will be personally responsible for cleaning of all surfaces and items that are touched.

Common for All Infected Residents:

Residents that test positive may not use common facilities (laundry, common rooms, communal kitchens, elevators, stairwells) during their isolation
