The decision from Aarhus University

Aarhus University has earlies announced that the rest of the current semester will be continued online. Very few classes will be taught onsite, and only when lab requirements or other special circumstances speaks for it.

The university also announced, that the continued online teaching this semester would continue whether the authorities allowed for opening or not.

It is currently in progress to update the exam plans for the summer and we should expect a high degree of online exams. Updated exam plan is published as soon as possible after Easter.

Corona passport; how, when and where?

The company NetCompany has been selected to develop a digital Corona passport. It will to begin with be implemented in the App “MinSundhed” where you can already check the result of your PCR corona tests taken in Denmark. The Corona Passport will be based on at least three factors:

  • COVID19 / Corona Vaccine received
  • Healthy after an infection of COVID19 / Corona virus
  • Tested within the latest xx hours/days

If one choose not to accept a vaccine, it is likely that frequent testing will be required for months to come.

Borders and traveling

Currently all countries worldwide are “in red”, meaning all travelling is adviced against. Entry into Denmark is limited. Se more at

The vaccine from AstraZeneca

Due to observation of possible serious side effects with the risc of death, the Danish health authorities decided to pause the use of this vaccine 2 weeks ago. On the 25th of ‘march that pause was prolonged by 3 weeks for the time being. Denmark will continue to receive the vaccines from AstraZeneca so in case the use is reassumed, it is possible to vaccinate a high number of people to catch up for the lost time. If the vaccine is refused, it will cause changes to the COVID19 vaccine calendar.
