- If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, self-isolate (stay in your room) and get a free COVID-19 test. If you are waiting on the results of a COVID-19 test you should be isolating. Do not go to college.
- If you are unsure about symptoms you are experiencing or if you should be attending college, contact your GP or your Student Health Centre for advice. Phone: 0719305463 or email@example.com
- If symptomatic you should stay at home and have a COVID-19 test even though you are vaccinated, as in some cases could still get COVID-19 and transmit it to others.
- You can return to your normal activities when you have had a negative PCR test and it is 48 hours since your symptoms have resolved. This includes going to work or college.
- If you have had a COVID-19 “positive” or “detected” result, follow the advice from the HSE Contact Tracing Team in relation to return to college date. You will need to self-isolate for 10 full days from when the symptoms of COVID-19 started, with no fever for the last 5 days.
- If you are COVID-19 “positive” please contact the Student Health Centre for advice and information on the supports available to you.
