General measures Follow infection control advice from authorities. Complete the compulsory online course in infection prevention and control (you must log in to Canvas to complete the course). Take responsibility for maintaining a distance of 1 meter to others. Use public transport only when absolutely necessary, walk or ride when you can. Avoid touching heavily used surfaces, such as card readers and door handles. Use your access card to punch in your pin code, and paper/jacket/elbow to open doors. Do not share equipment, such as pens and laptops, with others. Clean equipment often. Classrooms and teaching spaces Use only allocated places Respect the capacity of each teaching space, even if there are vacant seats. Avoid unecessary encounters: Fill centered rows from the middle, fill side rows from the innermost seatMaintain a distance of one meter to others, also when entering and leaving classrooms and auditoria.Wash the desk before use. Auditoria: Use disinfectant available at all doors to wash the desk. Discard used wipes in the bin as you leave. Classrooms: After the lecture the lecturer will make sure all tables are wiped clean by using the available spray disinfectant and paper. Students may be asked to help.If you are unwell Stay at home, or in quarantine, if you are unwell. Get tested if you think you are infected with covid-19. Commencement and orientation All students have received information about commencement from their faculty, on the relevant study programme website. Here you should be able to read about when to meet up, your timetable and course literature. Act in accordance with this information. Coronavirus measures include reducing the capacity of classrooms and other teaching spaces. This can mean changes to the timetables for certain student groups. Your faculty will notify you if any of your courses are affected by such changes. Orientation and the buddy programme will proceed as planned. The orientation committee has adapted the programme in order to prevent and control infection. New students should act in accordance with information about infection control during the orientation period. See the programmes for orientation here. By:Communications Unit Published:11.
