All students and clients are advised to follow these recommendations unless there is a specific health reason not to do so.
By following these recommendations, it may be possible to avoid further measures such as restrictions to opening hours and remote teaching.
Students are responsible for obtaining their own masks. Free masks are available at social and health care service points.
Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) recommends the use of face masks especially in circumstances where it is not possible to maintain safe distancing with others. It is critically important to maintain the safe distance of two meters when possible, wash hands, cough in your sleeve or paper tissue and avoid touching your face. It is also important to avoid travelling between campuses and gathering indoors.
Students are encouraged to spend their breaks outdoors as often as possible so that the classrooms can be sufficiently ventilated. In order to secure a safe lunch break for everyone, students should leave the canteen immediately after having their lunch.
We encourage all our students and clients to use Koronavilkku-application provided by THL. More information at koronavilkku.fi.
