Guidelines for internships where special circumstances apply
The Danish Health Authority has clarified the guidelines that are applicable for students with special circumstances. The new guidelines are applicable from May 10, 2020 and replace the former guidelines from April 15, 2020. This means that some students that before have worked from home can now meet at their place of internship.
- You shall as a starting point, follow the internship’s instructions. Are you as a student in doubt about what the guidelines mean for you, so take contact to your place of internship.
- As a student in a special risk group, you should as a starting point, hold your internship as planned, but should not be exposed to obvious risks of infection.
- In special cases can persons of higher risk, based upon an individual and medical assessment, be exempted from the demand to meet physically at the internship. This is decided based upon a concrete medical evaluation where alternative possibilities for reassignment to other work conditions shall be considered.
- If the student in cooperation with the place of internship has reached the conclusion that one should not meet up at the internship due to special circumstances, the student shall fill-out a declaration of truth, which is to be sent to the internship and education.
