Aalto prepares partial lifting of coronavirus restrictions

The existing policies and guidelines will remain in force until 13 May

Aalto University is currently preparing to ease the restrictions that were put in place in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus. This follows the Finnish government’s 4 May decision to partially dismantle the restrictive measures imposed earlier for dealing with coronavirus. 

‘With consideration for the government policy and guidelines given by the authorities, we are preparing for a partial reopening of campus operations in a controlled and stepwise manner that ensures the health and safety of the Aalto community’, states Aalto University’s President Ilkka Niemelä

This week (19), among other things, protective arrangements will be piloted so that the lifting of restrictive measures on campus can be done safely. 

The university’s current instructions on remote work, study and the use of the campus facilities will remain in force until 13 May:  (if the link doesn't work, you can copy the URL and paste it into your web browser).

We will provide additional information on future measures later this week (19).
