What do I do if… 

I experience symptoms:  

  • If you have any of the following COVID-19 symptoms – high temperature (38°C or higher), a cough, difficulty breathing, a change or loss of your sense of smell or taste – you must act quickly. Stay at home or isolate on campus. Phone the Student Health Unit on (091) 492604 or fill out their online screening form or phone your local GP. Describe your symptoms and follow the doctor’s instructions.

I receive a positive COVID-19 diagnosis:  

  • Follow public health advice. You will need to self-isolate and your close contacts will need to get tested and restrict their movements.
  • You should contact the University confidentially (either by emailing or contacting lecturer/administrator). This will enable the University to offer support.

I discover my classmate has had a positive COVID-19 diagnosis: 

  • If you are a close contact of someone who tested positive for COVID-19, you need to get tested for COVID-19 and restrict your movements for 14 days – even if your test comes back negative. See the difference between a ‘close’ and ‘casual’ contact on the HSE website.

I discover my housemate has had a positive COVID-19 diagnosis: 

  • You are considered a close contact. You need to get tested for COVID-19 and restrict your movements for 14 days – even if your test comes back negative.
