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 will transition from remote work to blended work starting 2 May. In-house meetings can be held normally. Employees should also have the alternative to take part in internal meetings online in May.

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.

If you are sick or exposed

Mask recommendation

The Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare eased its national mask recommendations just before Easter.

In addition, the Päijät-Häme region no longer has regional mask recommendations imposed by authorities. In South Karelia, however, authorities strongly advise wearing masks at least until the end of April due to the large number of patients hospitalised. For these reasons, the mask recommendations of LUT and LAB will as of 21 April depend on the region and campus.

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.
