SLIPERIET – Umeå University’s Vice Chancellor, Hans Adolfsson, announced new rules this afternoon, in response to the increasingly serious coronavirus situation in the city. “Above all, we now need to reduce the number of people on university premises,” he said, “but also limit physical contact between people.”

  • Students doing external internships, tutorials, theses, work-based education, and so forth, must follow the guidelines and recommendations of supervisors

Employees

  • All employees must work from home as much as possible, after consulting with their immediate supervisor

Our Mission and Umeå Today 2.0:
The seriousness of the coronavirus crisis has again become a topic that requires news coverage for everyone in Umeå, whether or not they speak Swedish. Umeå Today has, therefore, returned to its original mission of covering the crisis, and you can find updated information here on our webpage. Meanwhile, Umeå Today is planning to launch its 2.0 products, including The Umeå Handbook and Umeå Sunday, a weekly multimedia newscast, in early 2021. In addition to covering the crisis, we will be blogging here about the development of Umeå Today 2.0.
