Corona virus - how are students affected?

Help prevent the spread

Here follows a summary of the recommendations and measures at Campus Gotland in the work to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Above all

The best way to protect yourself and others from infection is to avoid close contact with people. It is fundamental to keep your distance and to take personal responsibility. Other precautions on avoiding infections:

  1. Stay home if you feel unwell
  2. Watch for symptoms of COVID-19
  3. Wash your hands often or use sanitiser often
  4. Cough and sneeze into your elbow
  5. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.

Scheduling on Campus

  • On campus, students are advised to only spend time indoors in connection with scheduled on-site classes. If you have distance learning scheduled before or after an on-site class and don’t have enough time to move to an off-campus study location, it will of course be necessary to find a socially distant study location on campus. Students who have scheduled classes immediately before or after lunch can stay on the premises during their lunch break.
  • Whenever possible, a half an hour's gap between different courses will be added, instead of the current 15 minutes
  • No teaching sessions will have more than 50 people per venue.
  • Classrooms, group rooms and programme rooms are only used for a maximum of half their capacity, i.e. half of the number of seats. A room that normally accommodates 50 people can thus only hold 25 people.
  • Extension of the day as much as possible; schedule courses between 8:00 and 17:00
  • Lunchtimes are spread out as much as possible, between 11:00 and 14:00
  • Scattered start times; 8:00, 8:30, 8:45, etc.

Information/signage on Campus

  • Information about maintaining social distance cycles on the screens and is posted on doors, in corridors, in dining rooms, toilets and group rooms.
  • All places where queuing can be expected have been marked with ‘stand stickers’.

Miscellaneous

  • No exhibitors or similar guests in the main entrance during the entire autumn semester of 2020
  • Plexiglas is to be set up at the reception desk at theDekal main entrance, at the study administration office on level 2 in the D building, and for exams.
  • The reception desk will have a number tag system
  • A maximum of 4 students at a time may visit the study administration office on level 2 of the D building at any given time.
  • Drop-in via Zoom is offered for those students who have administrative questions and do not wish to visit Student Services in person
  • Half of the seats in the restaurant have been removed; the same goes for the ‘student dining room’ in the D building
  • Stations with disinfection option are set up at entrances, the reception desk, and in classrooms
  • On-site exams have a separate, detailed action plan.
