Mid Sweden University is not affected by new restrictions

Thu 09 Dec 2021 10:45

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.

Mid Sweden University was not affected by the restrictions and precautions imposed today. On the contrary, the Public Health Agency wishes the country’s higher education institutions to maintain their core activities.

As regards the call to work from home to a certain extent, it is argued that those who are not necessary to maintain normal operations on campus can work at home. Nor is the call to avoid public transport aimed at the university’s employees or students. However, everyone is asked, if possible, to avoid congestion in public transport by choosing to travel outside peak times, or to use alternative means of travel. If you have difficulty avoiding congestion — use masks.

There are currently no general instructions to cancel Christmas parties and tables and the like. However, these should be implemented as safe as possible.

The Public Health Agency also asks that higher education institutions are restrained with public lectures and larger collections.

Remember, 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.
