All Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted at institutions of higher education in Denmark, as announced by the Ministry of Higher Education and Science on 26 January 2022.

For staff and students at Aarhus University, this means that you no longer need a Covid passport to come to campus, and that you don’t have to wear a mask/face covering either. There are no restrictions on in-person events, and all work tasks, research activities, teaching and exams and activities for new students can take place in person on campus. This means that academic, work-related and social events can be held at the university.


Focus on preventing infection

Aarhus University follows the healthcare authorities’ recommendations, and encourages everyone to take the protective measures recommended by the Danish Health Authority

Infection and symptoms

Staff members and students who test positive for Covid-19, experience symptoms or come in contact with an infected person should follow the healthcare authorities’ recommendations, which are available on the health authorities website. Infected staff members should also follow AU’s general guidelines for absence due to illness.

Covid-19 guidelines for at-risk groups

Covid-19 is no longer classified as a public health emergency. This means that Covid-19 is now in the same category as other infectious diseases. 

If you are a staff member who is particularly vulnerable to infection and or if there are special circumstances that apply to you as an individual, you should discuss your situation with your manager. At-risk students may apply for a dispensation through the usual channels. 

Travel, research/study abroad and guests from abroad

The following national guidelines for travel to Denmark apply to all work-related travel: as well as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark’s travel guidelines.

Information for the university’s international employees and guests from abroad is available here: Coronavirus/covid-19 information for international staff at AU.
