Information for persons in quarantine + + + Status 20.10.2020

We regret that you have to be in quarantine among our students due to the Covid-19 outbreak and hope that the disease does not break out among you and that you will soon be fit again.

Please follow the roles also in your room:

Wash your hands regularly
Coughs and sneezes into disposable tissues or the crook of your arm
Disinfects door handles and other surfaces that are frequently touched
Avoids contacts; keeps them low
Wear masks when receiving food.
Keep the quarantine also among themselves.

How long must I stay in quarantine?

If you are infected, you will know after about 5 to 6 days until the symptoms of the disease appear. Sometimes it can take up to 14 days. The quarantine lasts 14 days.

Important: If a quarantine has been officially established, it must be officially lifted again.

Persons who undergo a Covid-19 test because of symptoms are quarantined at least until the test result is available.

I have tested positive; what happens after that?

If the course of the disease is mild, the patient may be kept in quarantine at home; if the course of the disease is more severe, hospitalization will be necessary.

We are currently clarifying with the health authorities what the further testing strategy will be. All those tested are requested to draw up a contact list immediately. Contacts are all persons with whom one has been together for more than 15 minutes, with whom one has had contact for a shorter period without a mask and/or without a minimum distance. Those tested positive must report their contact list to the Health Department. Iris Müller or Martina Lucke receive the lists (also for forwarding).

Which symptoms are considered Covid-19 symptoms?

Symptoms can be similar to a "normal" cold, such as fever, dry cough, tiredness or fatigue, sore throat, headache and aching limbs, rarely conjunctivitis, loss of sense of taste or smell, skin rash. Severe symptoms include difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, chest pain or pressure, loss of speech or movement (according to Info WHO.org).

What should I do if I think I am infected with Covid-19?

The coronavirus is mainly transmitted by droplet infection. According to the Robert Koch Institute, smear infection (via contaminated surfaces) and infection via the conjunctiva of the eyes are theoretically also possible. According to current findings, more than 80 percent of the diseases are comparatively mild.
