Decision regarding COVID-19 from 9 February until 5 June 2022
This decision concerns the Univiersity's communicable control measures for the remaining part of the 2022 spring semester until 5 June. This decision is reached due to the majority of the national restrictions being lifted on 9 February. The aim is that no further University regulations regarding COVID-19 will be required for the period following the validity period of this decision. This may be reassessed if required.
Deviations from a course syllabus regarding the formats for teaching and assessment may be made to the extent necessary to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Only the person who normally makes decisions on course syllabi and examinations is allowed to make decisions on necessary deviations and must ensure that the decision is well-documented and archived. In those cases where the examination requires access to a computer or internet connection, students must be offered such aids that allow them to participate from a technical perspective. Approved deviations should not lead to obstructions or delay in the return to on-campus studies if the pandemic allows.

According to requirements set by the Swedish Work Environment Authority (AFS 2018:4), a minimum of safety class II needs to be applied for the processing of material that may contain infectious agents.
