Information about the corona virus for staff and students

On February 17 2020 The Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs changed their travel recommendations and now advise against all travels to the Hubei province in China, the region hardest hit by the new corona virus outbreak. The ministry also advices against non-essential travels to China except for Hongkong and Macao. Staff members and students should follow the recommendations of the responsible authorities.

University management is following developments closely.

For questions about the outbreak, please turn to the responsible authorities:

Employees and students who have visited areas with corona virus outbreaks are strongly advised to work from home, or from another place that reduces the risk of contagion, for 14 days.
