Testing and infection tracing

  • We encourage everyone who has symptoms to get tested. In addition to the instructions on infection tracing that the care provides, there is no obligation to inform whether you are infected or not. However, we recommend that you inform your nearest line manager or programme manager if being infected.

Prevent rumours

  • Help prevent the spreading of rumours and speculation. Seek credible sources, be source critical and do not share uncertain information. See below links to our authorities.
  • Keep in mind that information about a person’s health status is sensitive personal information that must not be spread.

External staff

  •  External staff, e.g. from cleaning companies and restaurants, working on BTH premises, are requested to follow our general advice, see above.
