The guidance from the Swedish Public Health Agency must be followed at all times, meaning that:

  • gatherings of more than 50 persons are not allowed
  • physical distancing must be observed for teaching on campus
  • we will as far as possible avoid rush hour traffic, and spread campus teaching over time.

Policy for undergraduate education during the autumn semester

The Department of Meteorology strongly believes that on-campus teaching is generally to be preferred from a pedagogical point of view. Especially practical elements in courses (such as labs) and exams are difficult to replace, whereas lectures can be more easily transferred online with preserved quality. At the same time, we feel a great responsibility towards both staff and students, and wish to minimise the risk for transmission of disease. The following rules apply as long as they are in line with the recommendations from the government and other state authorities.

  • Classes are held on campus
  • Exams are held on campus
  • Our teaching rooms will be adjusted to allow physical distancing
  • Students can only be at the department on days when they attend scheduled classes. Students are then urged not to reside on the premises before or after the class sessions.
  • The student pantry can be used during lunches and breaks between class sessions
  • Students and employees shall follow SU’s and Folkhälsomyndigheten’s guidance regarding Covid-19, see links below
  • Keep a distance (2 meters as often as possible) and respect that others may have a different view on what physical distancing means
  • Wash your hands often and thoroughly
  • Stay at home if you feel the least bit sick
  • Avoid rush hour traffic as much as possible and try to get to campus by alternative means
  • If you plan to eat while you are at the department, bring your own lunch and if possible your own tableware and cup for drinking
