Covid19 pandemic information

EHS will have campus teaching the academic year 20/21 unless the recommendations of Public Health Agency of Sweden are tightened before the start of the new studyyear in August.

Due to current recommendations on physical distance, the number of places in the classrooms will be limited, but at the same time it will be possible to attend online in the vast majority of courses. Thus, the 80% attendance requirement remains, but the student can either be physically present on campus or digitally connected with a video camera with sound and picture. If the digital connection does not work, it is counted as absence regardless of cause. If you will be on campus, you must report it to the respective teacher.

Other things apply to both students and staff:

  • If you feel the slightest cold symptoms (sniff, cough, sore throat, fever) you must not stay in EHS premises. And you should stay at home until you have been symptom-free for at least two days.

  • Always wash your hands when you get home or when you come to your work after going out, before meals, during food handling and after a toilet visit.

  • Infection is spread through the mucous membranes of the eyes, nose and mouth. A common preventive measure against respiratory tract infections is to avoid touching the eyes, nose and mouth.

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