Information to students at the Faculty of Biosciences and Aquaculture (FBA)

The Faculty of Biosciences and Aquaculture takes its role in restricting transmission of Coronavirus seriously, and the safety of our students and staff is of the utmost importance.


Infection prevention measures
The three most important measures to restrict transmission are:
  1. Individuals who are ill should not be on university grounds
  2. Good hygiene
  3. Reduced rate of contact and increased distance between individuals.

Individuals who are ill

Students and staff with respiratory symptoms:

  • Students and staff who have even mild respiratory symptoms and a general feeling of being unwell should not be on university grounds. They should stay home until they have been free of symptoms for 24 hours.

Students and staff who have a confirmed Covid-19 infection:

Students and staff with a close contact or member of household with confirmed Covid-19 infection:

If you are unsure whether you can meet at campus, please contact the course responsible(s).

Quarantine and isolation

If you must undergo quarantine or isolation, and this affects your study progress, you must notify the course responible(s) as soon as possible.

Hygiene and cleaning

All lecture rooms and laboratories have cleaning equipment and disinfectants, so that tables and other equipment can be cleaned after use. We ask that our students help with preventive measures in order to restrict transmission of infection. 

Lab coat

For the autumn semester 2020, all students who will have lab teaching, will be allowed to borrow their own lab coat. The coat must be brought to every lab exercise. 

Reduced frequency of contact between individuals

When you come to lectures, student labs or doing field work, vi expect that the general guidelines for infection prevention and control are respected. We ask everyone to keep one meter distance.​​​

Consent form - Infection prevention

It is important that everyone at the faculty has been given adequate information about infection prevention and control. We therefore ask that you send your consent form for infection control before the semester starts in August. Access to the form requires Feide login. First-year students must therefore complete the semester registration first.
