SeAMK’s policies and instructions on coronavirus and travelling have been updated

13.3.2020

SeAMK’s policies and instructions on coronavirus and travelling for staff and students have been updated.

The updated instructions consist of the following things:

1. Traveling abroad

SeAMK prohibits all business trips abroad, as well as new study trips and mobility periods abroad. The decision will take immediate effect and is currently valid until 31.5.2020, but may be changed if necessary. SeAMK does not recommend traveling abroad in any case in this situation. SeAMK recommends that staff and students do not travel abroad in their leisure time either. Of course, each person assesses the situation by him/herself. In any case, after returning from abroad to home, you will have to stay at home quarantine for 14 days and work remotely. You must discuss your holiday trip plans in advance with your supervisor and review the remote working options after the trip.

2. Cancelling trips
3. Instructions for employees and students when returning from work or leisure trip abroad.

4. Currently, SeAMK does not accept foreign guests or students on their mobility period.

The decision will take immediate effect and is currently valid until 31.5.2020. The decision does not apply to foreign guests already in Finland.

5. Domestic trips should also be made only when necessary. 

 
6. Special attention should be paid to good hand hygiene. No more shaking hands!

7. Do not come to work or school if you are ill.
8. The activities of SeAMK will continue normally, but the situation will be monitored on a daily basis, following the instructions of the authorities.

 

Note. Changes may be made to the guidelines, so follow the SeAMK Intra.

SeAMK’s preparations for the coronavirus pandemic are led by the SeAMK’s Security Management Team.

The Team decides on all necessary policies, guidelines and other measures required by the current situation, and manages all communications related to coronavirus at SeAMK.

If necessary, the Team may call other SeAMK employees to take part in the practical arrangements to manage the current situation. For example, it has been agreed that the International Mobility Services team will contact individual exchange students and answer their questions when needed.
