Corona/Covid-19 and the education at the Department of Biology

This information was updated on October 7, 2021.

We are now returning to on-campus teaching although some parts may still be offered on-line. From November 1 there are no formal restrictions, but it is important that we continue to act safely.

Remember that we are all responsible to keep each other safe:

  • Stay home if you feel sick – contact your main lecturer/teacher in advance if you will miss compulsory parts. They will try to find an alternative solution for you.
  • Keep a social distance to people that you don’t meet every day
  • Stay away from crowded areas and avoid crowding when passing in and out of lecture halls, labs etc.
  • Wash your hands and use hand disinfectant regularly
  • Follow the instructions on your course regarding when to wear protective equipment, e.g. face mask, visors etc.

If you are not fully vaccinated, we recommend that you do this as soon as possible. Note that for those not fully vaccinated, special recommendations apply! Read more at the website of The Public Health Agency of Sweden.

For more information, e.g. about vaccination for students, see the central LU web site about Corona/Covid 19.

This applies until November 1 2021:

All courses given during the first part of the autumn semester are on campus, with some components given on-line. This means that exercises, labs, field trips, seminars etc. are performed with students present on site. Lectures will largely be given on-line. 

If you have problems working at home because of an unstable internet connection or other reasons, there are places to study at the Department. Group work with up to three people is allowed in our group rooms, but keep social distance!

The library will be have reduced opening hours (check, primarily for handing out and in books.

Lunchrooms are open with restrictions (keep social distance, maximum number in locality etc.).
