Release to LUT and LAB staff and students, 7 August 2020

The COVID-19 epidemic in Finland has taken a turn for the worse this week. As we are aiming to keep the doors to our campus open safely, everyone should observe the following guidelines from now on: 

When you return to Finland from abroad (work-related travel or holiday) or come to Finland to work or study, you will be allowed on campus only after 14 days of self-isolation. The isolation starts from the day you arrive in Finland.

During these 14 days, you must work or study remotely. The isolation period applies to everyone arriving from abroad. 

If you are unable to work remotely, employees may take e.g. vacation days or flexi leave. Please contact your supervisor to discuss the details.

LAB students send a notification of their absence to studentservices@lab.fi. LUT students send a notification of absence to opinto@lut.fi

Remember to take the self-isolation period into consideration when you plan any work-related or personal travel.

Beyond our campuses, follow the travel and self-quarantine guidelines of the Finnish government and quarantines imposed by physicians.
