Spring 2022 at the Faculty of Social Sciences
The Faculty of Social Sciences has decided the following concerning education (including third cycle education) up to and including 31 January 2022:
- on-campus teaching is to be preceded by a risk assessment. If there is uncertainty about whether a component can be conducted without crowding and/or with sufficient infection control measures, the component is to be conducted digitally.
- course introductions and lectures are to be conducted digitally.
- in the event of an infection outbreak among teaching staff and/or students, all teaching for the course/group in question is to be transferred to a digital form until the outbreak is over.
Teaching staff and students are to

- stay at home if experiencing Covid-19 symptoms
- ensure good hand hygiene.
The basis for the remainder of the 2022 spring semester is that teaching is to be conducted on campus from 1 February, according to earlier planning.
