The next step in lifting restrictions
On 29 September, the next step of the Government's plan to remove restrictions was taken. Among other things, the recommendation concerning working from home will be lifted and the restriction of number of participants at public events will be removed.
It remains your responsibility to:
- Stay at home if you have symptoms and get tested
- Avoid crowds
- Maintain good hand hygiene
SKH guidelines for the autumn term remain in place
SKH has a responsibility to ensure that infection control measures are in place even after 29 September.
SKH will continue to follow the advice and recommendations of the Public Health Agency for higher education institutions. SKH's guidelines are based on these throughout the autumn term.
After 29 September, the SKH corona guidelines will still apply. This means that for the remainder of the autumn term we will continue to:
- Minimize risk of crowding - maintain a distance. Be responsible - avoid meeting in narrow passages. Respect direction systems, one-way stairs etc.
- Conduct teaching, research or other related activity digitally where it works best.
- Continue to plan for activities to be conducted in smaller groups ("bubbles") wherever possible and to minimise contact between groups.
- For on-site public events, submit a risk analysis to the Corona team for approval.
- Report cases of Covid so that infection control measures can be implemented.
You find SKH´s Guidelines for the autumn term on this page.
