Here we have gathered current information about Dalarna University's handling of covid-19. We update the information continuously.

2022-01-14: Updated information regarding "Teaching and Examinations".

Teaching and Examinations

For teaching and examinations, there are no restrictions when it comes to the number of people who may be in the same room or the physical distance between people. However, remember to maintain distance from others before and after lectures, examinations and other such situations in accordance with current recommendations. 

For during examinations, the University will supply students and staff with hand sanitiser and face masks. 

You can find out what applies for your course/programme on Learn, our learning management system. If you have questions about specific components of your course/programme, contact your course coordinator/programme coordinator.

f you have symptoms, it is important that you stay at home. If a large number of students are unable to take the examination on the scheduled date, then we will look at arranging more examination dates and times in the near future.

University Buildings and Premises

There will be no changes made to the seating in classrooms and labs, nor will furniture be rearranged on university premises. Each department or staff member is responsible for choosing an appropriate venue based on the activity and the number of expected participants.

You will find hand sanitiser as well as reminders to maintain your distance from others close to the entrance of the university campuses.

Infection

Employees and students must stay at home and test themselves if they have symptoms, and they must follow the recommendations of the Swedish Public Health Agency.

It is the doctor and healthcare services that decide who an infected person must inform. It is also the individual who is responsible for informing anybody they have been in close contact with. You can voluntarily or according to instructions from healthcare services inform your programme coordinator or course coordinator about your condition.
