The Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare has updated its recommendation on the use of face masks. The updated recommendation also applies to higher educations institutions during the epidemic’s so-called acceleration phase.
Several cases of coronavirus infections (COVID-19) have been detected at Arcada University of Applied Sciences during the past week. People who have been exposed in close contact have been contacted by the City of Helsinki's Epidemiological Operations Unit and placed in quarantine.
Arcada’s campus reopened on 3.8, but a large part of the activities of the UAS will continue remotely. Arcada’s security team, under the leadership of the Rector Mona Forsskåhl, made a new assessment of the situation on 14.8. The updated instructions take into account the new national recommendations given by the Government.
Although the campus is closed, support and services for Arcada's students are offered remotely. Please feel free to contact them, either if you need any support with your studies or classes, if you have any practical problems or if you are experiencing e.g. anxiety or stress. Below is a summary of all the services offered by Arcada remotely. Don't know who to contact? Please contact email@example.com and we will guide you to the right service.
