Information about Coronavirus
Here follows a summary of measures taken at Campus Gotland in the work to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The information is a local supplement to the University's page 'Recommendations on how to minimize the spreading of COVID-19'. First a reminder of how we reduce the spread of the coronavirus.
Slow down the spread of COVID-19
The best way to protect yourself and others from infection is to avoid close contact with people. It is fundamental to keep your distance and to take personal responsibility.
As of 14 December 2020, stricter national regulations and general advice (link to Krisinformation.se) come into force about everyone's responsibility to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Do everything you can to prevent the spread of infection. By protecting yourself and others from infection, you are also helping the healthcare on Gotland.
- Stay at home if you feel even slightly unwell
- Feeling unwell? Go and get tested. Information on testing for COVID-19 on Gotland.
- Are you infected? Read here if you are infected with COVID-19.
- Keep your distance from other people
- Wash your hands frequently and use hand sanitiser
- Cough and sneeze into your elbow
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
- If possible - study from home
- Avoid crowding and large social gatherings.
measures to prevent the spread of infection
Scheduling at Campus Gotland
- On campus, students are advised to only spend time indoors in connection with scheduled on-site classes. If you have distance learning scheduled before or after an on-site class and don’t have enough time to move to an off-campus study location, it will of course be necessary to find a socially distant study location on campus. Students who have scheduled classes immediately before or after lunch can stay on the premises during their lunch break.
- Whenever possible, a half an hour's gap between different courses will be added, instead of the current 15 minutes
- No teaching sessions will have more than 50 people per venue.
- Classrooms, group rooms and programme rooms are only used for a maximum of half their capacity, i.e. half of the number of seats. A room that normally accommodates 50 people can thus only hold 25 people.
- Extension of the day as much as possible; schedule courses between 8:00 and 17:00
- Lunchtimes are spread out as much as possible, between 11:00 and 14:00
- Scattered start times; 8:00, 8:30, 8:45, etc.
Information/signage on Campus
- Information about maintaining social distance cycles on the screens and is posted on doors, in corridors, in dining rooms, toilets and group rooms.
- All places where queuing can be expected have been marked with ‘stand stickers’.
- No exhibitors or similar guests in the main entrance
- Plexiglas is set up at the reception desk at the main entrance, at the study administration office on level 2 in the D building, and for exams.
- The reception desk will have a number tag system
- A maximum of 4 students at a time may visit the study administration office on level 2 of the D building at any given time.
- Drop-in via Zoom is offered for those students who have administrative questions and do not wish to visit Student Services in person
- Half of the seats in the restaurant have been removed; the same goes for the ‘student dining room’ in the D building
- Stations with disinfection option are set up at entrances, the reception desk, and in classrooms
- On-site exams have a separate, detailed action plan.
- A 'social distancing warden' will ensure that groups of students are not too close to each other and that the recommended distance is maintained between students.
