COVID-19 report, 8 October

The University has 4 confirmed cases of COVID-19 to report from last week, 3 among students and 1 employee. Otherwise, there is nothing special to report this week.

If you are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19, the Public Health Agency's general guidelines still apply, which in short means that you, when possible, should:

  • Keep a distance from other people
  • Avoid close contact with people in a risk group, and people who are aged 70 and over

Remember that vaccination is the best way to avoid serious illness and the spread of COVID-19.

If you are confirmed infected, the Communicable Diseases Act requires you to inform people whom you suspect you may have infected. As part of Uppsala University’s efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19 infection, the University has created an online procedure to help you do this anonymously.

Finally – follow the recommendations announced previously and keep up to date with the current rules of conduct.
