Recommendations on coronavirus

Are you infected?


All students, staff, visitors and others engaged in activities at the University must follow the recommendations in effect to reduce the spread of infection in society. Gatherings of more than 50 people should be avoided and efforts should be made to ensure physical distancing in University premises. If the Public Health Agency’s recommendations on the number of people change, the University’s decision will also change.
