A high vaccine coverage and the on average milder omicron variant have enabled lifting coronavirus restrictions in Finland. The incidence of COVID-19 in our operating areas is still high, which means we all need to keep following health guidelines.

If you feel sick, it is important that you stay at home. Do not come to the campus to study or work if you have any symptoms!

We have moved to blended work. In-house meetings can be held normally.

Events can be arranged on our campuses and regional units normally without restrictions to the number of participants as long as the organiser follows health security guidelines.

Those who come to our campuses and regional units from abroad will follow Finland's national border traffic guidelines.

Mask recommendation

The general mask recommendation on campuses has ended. We still recommend the use of a face mask at your own consideration especially in circumstances where several persons share a space in which it is not possible to keep your distance.

Kindly consider the use of a face mask based on your own health and security especially if you belong to a risk group for Covid-19.

We keep providing surgical and FFP2-type face masks to our personnel and students.

The current mask recommendation of The Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare:

Events

Events can be arranged on our campuses and regional units normally without restrictions to the number of participants as long as the organiser follows health security guidelines.

Organisers of events are obligated to prevent transmission risks due to close contacts between people. This obligation aims to increase health security, not ban any events or require specific distances between people. It is up to organisers to assess who they can prevent transmission risks.

In-house staff meetings and events

In-house meetings may be arranged on campus from 2 normally. The number of participants in in-house meetings is not restricted. Employees should also have the alternative to take part in internal meetings online in May.

We will also start using our open-plan offices at their normal capacities from the beginning of April.
