Coronavirus status at SLU

Published: 01 December 2021

The Public Health Agency has issued new guidelines. These guidelines mean that SLU will be reintroducing our previous contact tracing procedure. The current instructions, and the addendum for teaching and examination, remain in force the rest of the semster.

New from 22 November 2021

As of 22 November 2021, new guidelines from the Public Health Authority are in effect about staying at home and testing for covid-19. Both vaccinated and unvaccinated persons should be tested for symptoms.
The following recommendations apply:
  • Be aware of new symptoms such as sore throat, runny nose, fever and cough. 
  • Stay home if you get these or other symptoms of a respiratory infection and get tested for covid-19.
  • This applies to both you who are unvaccinated and you who are vaccinated.

Read more about what applies from 22 November.

Report to SLU if you have been diagnosed with covid-19

By filling in a covid-19 form, SLU can take measures to reduce the risk of the spread of infection on campus. Remember that you must also report that you are unwell to your course leader.

New from 1 December 2021

From 1 December, you may need to show proof of vaccination at public gatherings and public events indoors with more than 100 participants. SLU's teaching is not affected by this recommendation as university teaching is not counted as a public gathering.

Teaching and examination

The current instructions, and the addendum for teaching and examination, remain in force until 16 January (period 2). We are currently looking into what the instructions for period 3 will be. The instructions currently in force make it possible to have all teaching online if the examiner believes this to be necessary, for example, if several students in a group test positive for Covid-19.
