Covid19 pandemic information

EHS conducts Covid19-adapted campus teaching in the academic year 20/21, which means that course participants can attend both campus and online in the campus courses. EHS follows The Public Health Agency of Sweden's recommendations, which currently means:

  1. In case of minimum disease symptoms (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 distance. 

  2. People living with Covid-19 infected people should be considered as possible cases of the disease, and as a rule, abstinence rules are covered. The rules may, for example, mean that you are not allowed to go to work. It is the doctor who decides on rules of conduct.

  3. 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.

  4. In view of the prevailing recommendations on social distancing, it is important that everyone respects the distance to everyone of at least 1.5 m in all contexts. Therefore, the number of seats in the classrooms is also smaller than before.

  5. 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 calls be held online or by telephone.

  6. Infection spreads through the mucous membranes of the eyes, nose and mouth. A common preventative measure for respiratory tract infections is to avoid touching the eyes, nose and mouth.

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

  8. The attendance requirement of 80% applies, but the student can either 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 the cause.

  9. If you want to attend the campus, you must notify the respective teacher, as the number of places in the classroom is less due to Covid19-adapted furniture.

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