Take a self-test at AHO

In collaboration with SIO, AHO will now offer self-tests to all our students and staff who wants to get tested. The tests are free, easy to use, and you get them in the reception at AHO.

I'm not feeling good, what do I have to do? 

If you have symptoms of illness, you need to stay home, if that is possible with your lectures. If you need to work on campus, arrive 30 minutes earlier and take a self-test. 

What happens if a student is infected with Covid-19?

Student who are infected with Covid-19, must contact their teacher who will inform the head of the academic services Silje Nygaard. 

AHO will together with the student do an infection tracing, and the school will contact those who are defined as close contacts, and possibly needs to get a test. The school will send an email to everyone that there has been an infection case at AHO. 

You can get more information about quarantine and testing at Helsedirektoratet.
