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.

Based on the current situation, the Coronavirus Coordination Group will propose that the decision-making meeting of the Vice-Chancellor, RBM, extend the gradual return to campus until 31 March 2022. According to the current decision, full return to campus will be completed by 1 January 2022.

Digital meetings

When it comes to meetings, the Swedish Public Health Agency recommends that digital solutions should be prioritised, where possible, over physical solutions.

Campus education

Education is not affected by the recommendations of the Public Health Agency, therefore the teaching will continue as planned during the study period 2. A new government decision on distance education has not been made and is therefore not relevant at present.

Institutions Days and Christmas Party

Many departments and institutions have planned to meet in December. There are currently no direct restrictions on organising meetings. A general advice is therefore that the head of department/prefect decide on any physical meetings after discussion with the working group. If you decide to meet, consider choosing premises where you can keep distance from each other and hold the meetings by location.

Dissertations

A number of dissertations are scheduled for December and January. At present there is no obstacle to their implementation, but it is an advantage if the premises are adapted in size to avoid congestion. 

Otherwise, you still have to wash your hands frequently, keep distance, stay at home if you or someone in your household is ill, and have you tested, whether you are vaccinated or not.
