Information for staff regarding the corona virus


COVID-19 — concider this

We are looking forward to a new semester where we can finally hang out again. We no longer have any restrictions, but we still need to remember that the spread of COVID-19 is still ongoing.


Gradual return to campus

From February 9, the restrictions in Sweden will be lifted and we can finally start to return to normal. The return to the workplace will take place gradually from February 15.


Changes in courses and schedules due to the spread of infection

According to the Swedish Public Health Agency, the exceptionally high spread of infection seen in Sweden is expected to increase further in the coming weeks. If changes need to take place in your course, do not forget to send these to the Schedule administration.


Mid Sweden University is not affected by new restrictions

The restrictions and precautions introduced today, 9 December, are not aimed at the activities of higher education institutions. It emerged from a meeting yesterday between the Public Health Agency and the country’s higher education institutions.


Changes due to the pandemic

The increase in the spread of infection calls for new measures. The Coronavirus Coordination Group therefore proposes to extend the gradual return to campus until 2022-03-31. However, there are no changes regarding the campus education at present.


Clarification related to the pandemic

The changing COVID situation creates many new reflections and questions. Here you find a clarification of what applies to us at Mid Sweden University.


No new restrictions on the university’s activities

The spread of COVID-19 has recently increased across Europe and to some extent also in Sweden. However, mid Sweden University is not affected at present, therefore campus education and other activities continue according to previous Vice-Chancellor’s decisions.


New restrictions from the Public Health Agency

The Public Health Authority has decided on certain recommendations to prevent a re-infection of COVID-19. This means, among other things, that you need to test yourself if you experience symptoms, even if you are vaccinated.


Return to campus during reading period 2

On the last August, a principal decision was made on possible return to campus education during study period 2, if the pandemic situation allowed. The easing of the restrictions introduced in the autumn made it possible to implement the decision.


Return to the workplace

The Public Health Agency’s decision to release certain restrictive restrictions implies a gradual return to the workplace. The return must be completed by the end of the year and will be carried out in consultation with your immediate manager.


Gradual return to campus

The Public Health Agency’s general advice on distance education for adults will be discontinued on 1 June. However, a return should take place incrementally, so Mid Sweden University has decided to stick to its original plan of alternate attendance on campus during the autumn.


New recommendations for campus education issued by the Public Health Agency

At a press conference on Friday morning, Matilda Ernkrans, Minister for Higher Education and Research, commented that the Public Health Agency of Sweden will change its national advice on adult education. The coordination group will discuss how this affects Mid Sweden University next Monday.


Cautious optimism for the automn

This autumn’s work situation raises questions – will there be a return to campus or continue homework? Deputy Vice-Chancellor Eva Dannetun tries to give a picture of what it might look like. However, how the pandemic progresses will be crucial.


Regional recommendations on campus Sundsvall

The regional government in Västernorrland, Region Västernorrland, has issued new recommendations due to the increased risk of spread of virus. The new recommendations mean that students and employees are recommended to wear a mask when visiting crowded areas on campus Sundsvall.


Corona-adapted education on campus this fall

This fall the education on campus is planned to resume - but a corona-adapted one. It was decided at the vice-chancellor’s decision meeting today. So far, the decision only applies to the first semester of the fall term.


No extra ”corona exam”

During the month of January, Mid Sweden University offered an extra opportunity for the written exam due to the pandemic. This offer has now expired.


New decision due to the recent coronavirus developments

During 2020, Mid Sweden University has made a number of decisions because of the development of the coronavirus pandemic. Due to the increased spread of the virus and the stricter guidelines in Sweden, Mid Sweden University has decided on new measures.


If employees or students are infected with covid-19

We recommend employees to notify their immediate manager if they have tested positive for covid-19. Mid Sweden University has a dialogue with an infection control specialist about contact tracing and necessary measures if the virus should spread within groups at the university.


Adjustments this fall due to corona

Many adjustments are made at Mid Sweden University this fall to enable our business to be conducted in the best possible way without unnecessary risks due to the corona virus.


Continue to work remotely in the autumn

The Public Health Agency of Sweden recommends that we continue to work remotely during the autumn, among other things to relive public transportation.


Comprehensive preparations on campus for the fall

In order for Mid Sweden University to conduct a safe corona adapted campus education during the fall, comprehensive preparations on campus are underway and will be finished at the start of the semester.
