There are no typical symptoms for Covid-19. Most commonly mentioned are cough, sore throat, or fever; loss of sense of smell and taste may also occur temporarily. In principle, however, contact with other people should be avoided even in the case of a flu-like infection or influenza. Therefore, if symptoms occur, stay at home and do not come to the campus. Please observe yourself and contact your family doctor/general practitioner or the medical on-call service (116117).
The family doctor can decide on basis of a corona test. Please note that many testing centers offer citizen testing only for asymptomatic individuals.
You can find out what to do in the event of a positive test.
Follow the instructions of your family doctor or health authority. Individuals who have undergone PCR testing due to cold symptoms or a positive rapid corona test are required to quarantine themselves until the test result is available. Please remember to inform your close contacts as well. You are not allowed to enter the campus of TU Dortmund University.
If the result of the PCR test is negative, then the restrictions no longer apply and you can give the all-clear for your contacts. If the PCR test is positive, quarantine is automatically required.
