University Follows Regional Authorities’ Decisions in the Restriction on the Number of People and Remote Work Policy
The University's instructions on safety measures are observed closely and masks are used in the University’s facilities. The decisions of the regional authorities are followed in the restriction on the maximum number of people and remote work policy.
The coronavirus management team of the University of Turku decided on 9 February 2022 that the University connects lifting the restriction on limiting the maximum number of participants to 50 people to the Regional State Administrative Agency’s decisions on lifting restrictions.
The University personnel works remotely if it is possible for their work tasks and together assessed with the supervisor. Contact teaching requires that the teaching staff and the administrative and support personnel whose work tasks involve assisting in teaching arrangements work on campus. The coronavirus management team decided that this policy is in force as long as the regional recommendations (Southwest Finland, Satakunta) on remote work are in force. This policy supersedes the regulations of the University’s guideline for remote work. The personnel will be notified of the changes to the remote work policy.
The University's instructions on safety measures are still observed closely in the University’s facilities. Masks are used in the University’s facilities. Masks are always used unless the person is alone in the space or close contacts have been prevented with special arrangements.
The coronavirus management team decided earlier that the University gradually returns to more extensive contact teaching starting from Monday, 31 January 2022. Contact teaching will be increased in so far as possible, for example, small group teaching and thesis guidance can be organised on campus. The goal is to return to normal contact teaching arrangements by the end of the third period in March. The faculties and responsible teachers for the courses will give more detailed information on teaching arrangements in accordance with the faculty's practices.
The yellow light stage of the traffic light model for the coronavirus situation is in force on all the University’s campuses for the time being. The traffic light model for the coronavirus situation defines the level of safety measures at the University of Turku. The coronavirus management team decides on transferring to the green light stage when the restrictions can be lifted.
