What to do if you have symptoms of Covid-19

You are reminded that if you have any symptoms of Covid-19, you need to self-isolate, (stay in your room/stay at home) and phone your GP or one of the MTU (Cork campuses) Medical Practices below straight away.

The doctor will advise if you need a Covid–19 test. Please note that other people in your household will also need to restrict their movements (stay at home) until you get the results of your test. If your test is negative, and people in your household are symptom free, they no longer need to restrict their movements. If your test is positive, they will need to self-isolate, have a test (which will be arranged by the contact tracers) and follow public health advice.

If you are unwell you must not come to the University or leave your accommodation until you are deemed fit to do so.

The University continues to work closely with public health authorities. Due to patient confidentiality, MTU cannot disclose details of individual cases or particular locations. Anyone who is deemed a close contact will be contacted directly. A dedicated support network is already established by the University and is in place for any students and staff who may need assistance.

Please contact covid19@cit.ie if you need support, help, advice or have any queries, and email covid.sickness@cit.ie if you are instructed to self-isolate or diagnosed with Covid-19.

Please note that all Covid-19-related consultations are free of charge, however whichever practice you call you are asked to have your PPS number ready.

There are also wider supports available on campus should you wish to avail of same. Please go to: https://covid19.cit.ie/important/contact-details-for-student-services-and-supports-date-10th-february-2021 

In the meantime, let us, as a community, continue to look out for and after one another.
