University’s Traffic Light Model for Coronavirus Situation

The traffic light model for the coronavirus situation defines the level of safety measures at the University of Turku. The red light stage of the model is currently in force.

The colours of the traffic light model define the level of the University's restrictions and instructions related to the coronavirus situation.

  • Green light signals moderate restrictions,
  • yellow light increased restrictions, and  
  • red light strict restrictions.

The University management defines which stage is in force. Instructions and restrictions on the University’s operations have been defined in advance for each stage. The instructions apply to, for example, studying, working, and using the facilities.  

The University’s traffic light model for the coronavirus situation can be changed to the yellow light stage once the Hospital District of Southwest Finland moves from the community transmission phase to the acceleration phase. The safety measures and related instructions at the Rauma and Pori campuses can be reviewed separately if necessary.

The model is described more closely to the University staff and students in the intranet (requires logging in). This page contains information on the main policies of each stage of the traffic light model.
