The autumn semester is about to begin and in order for us to be able to meet in close contact on university premises, we will provide an overview of the rules applied to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
As a responsible educational institution, we recommend that the entire school family vaccinate themselves, which is the best way to prevent the spread of the virus. Vaccination may not provide full protection, but it significantly reduces both the likelihood of infection and severe illness. Information on vaccination options can be found at vaktsineeri.ee.
We're expecting to see all students attend face-to-face learning. Wearing a mask is mandatory on school premises. Wearing a mask reduces the spread of the virus and the risk of infection and also protects those who have not yet been fully vaccinated or who cannot be vaccinated for health reasons.
As a higher education institution, we will ensure that students are dispersed where possible in face-to-face learning. Wearing a mask provides more safety.
In the event of any signs of illness, both vaccinated and non-vaccinated students and teachers must stay at home and consult their GP as soon as possible.
As a higher education institution, we are not obliged to provide distance learning for students in isolation, but we have created an opportunity to watch lectures through EEK live. The lecturer decides on the transfer and storage of a specific subject. More detailed information can be found on ÕIS under the specific subject.
Notification of illness and rules for self-isolation as of 23 August 2021
If you are infected with COVID-19 during your studies, please inform either:
- the Estonian Entrepreneurship University of Applied Sciences Tallinn Study Office (telephone +372 610 1900, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org); or
- the Estonian Entrepreneurship University of Applied Sciences Tartu Study Office (telephone +372 738 7400, e-mail email@example.com).
After receiving the relevant information, we as a higher education institution will identify the possible people in close contact with the infected person within the framework of study activities and inform the Health Board in accordance with the established instructions.
According to the information received from the higher education institution, the Health Board will contact close contacts and determine their self-isolation based on vaccination.
As a close contact, the following people must remain in self-isolation:
people with symptoms
people who have received a positive rapid test result until the PCR test result is known
people diagnosed with COVID-19
people who were in close contact that refuse to be tested, which means there is no way to determine their risk of infection
As a close contact, quarantine is not required for the following people without signs of disease:
people who have completed the vaccination course, i.e. they have a valid COVID certificate
people who have suffered from the coronavirus disease in the last six months and who have been certified healthy by a doctor
people who have received a single dose of vaccine after being infected with the disease and achieved maximum protection
people who, after the first vaccine dose, have fallen ill with the coronavirus disease and who have been certified healthy by a doctor
people who have not been vaccinated or whose vaccination clinic has not been completed if they carry out two SARS-CoV-2 tests with negative results at least 72 hours apart
