Covid19 pandemic information

EHS will have Covid19-adapted campus teaching in the academic year 20/21, unless the Public Health Agency of Sweden’s recommendations are changed. This means:

  1. If you have the slightest symptoms of illness (eg cough, fever, difficulty breathing, runny nose, nasal congestion, sore throat, headache, nausea, muscle and joint pain) you must under no circumstances stay in EHS premises. If you belong to a risk group, EHS recommends that you work / study at distance.

  2. Always wash your hands when you get home or when you come to work after being out, before a meal, when handling food and after a toilet visit.

  3. In view of the prevailing recommendations on social distancing, it is important that everyone always respect a distance to everyone of at least 1.5 m. Therefore, the number of seats in the classrooms is also less than before.

  4. Students who wish to contact someone in the EHS administration must book an appointment in advance. No spontaneous visits are allowed. EHS recommends that these contacts will be held online or by telephone.

  5. Infection spreads through the mucous membranes of the eyes, nose and mouth. A general preventative measure against respiratory infections is to avoid touching the eyes, nose and mouth.

  6. It will be possible to attend online in the vast majority of courses.

  7. The attendance requirement of 80% applies, but the student either can be physically present on campus or digitally connected with a video camera with audio and video. If the digital connection does not work, it counts as absence regardless of cause.

  8. If you want to attend campus, you must report it to the respective teacher, as the number of places in the classrooms is less due to Covid19-adapted furnishing.

 One consequence of the above may be that a teacher, who has symptoms of illness or is in a risk group, will teach online in a campus course.

The administration in Bromma will only be physically staffed to a limited extent as EHS staff will for the time being work from home to a large extent.
