For this reason, the University advises against all travel to Hubei province in China. Students who are in Hubei province now are recommended to study at home for two weeks after their return to Sweden.

The University is in contact with all students and members of staff who we know have visited China recently for exchange studies, for visits in the home country or to work.

If you are in China or if you have recently returned from China and need to study at home; contact your programme director.

The University is closely monitoring all information from The Public Health Agency of Sweden and The Ministry for Foreign Affairs about the novel coronavirus.
