The spread of infection in the capital region during the second half of November went from the acceleration phase to the spreading phase, and there is a risk that the situation will get worse in the coming weeks. It is therefore more important than ever that each of us at Arcada takes responsibility for reducing the risk of infection. We need to be careful follow Arcada's instructions and recommendations. 

Arcada’s previous recommendations are already in line with the new regulations and recommendations given by the authorities on 19-20.11, and are in some respects even stricter. Nevertheless, the UAS now specifies our instructions as follows: 

  • The maximum group size in all teaching on campus is 20 people until 6.12. 

  • No team sports with close contact in the Arcada Hall. 

  • We remind you too keep a safe distance to others at all time. Avoid queues and crowds, for instance during lunch time. 

  • It is strongly recommended to wear a face mask when visiting campus. You can bring your own masks, but there are also masks you can borrow for classes on campus and hand back to the teacher after class.  

We continue with distance education also during the spring term, with the exception of such mandatory exercises, simulations and lab work that require attendance on campus. However, the UAS continuously monitors the epidemic situation and adjusts its instructions and restrictions accordingly. If you have any questions regarding your studies you can contact the amanuensis at your department.

Also remember the previous instructions on hand hygiene, distance, and staying at home if you have symptoms suggestive of COVID-19. Please make sure to repeat the full instructions for autumn here. 

Take care of yourself and each other!
