LiU has gradually returned to an open campus as the autumn has progressed, with teaching and exams on site. The situation has, however, differed between student groups, and a certain amount of teaching is still being carried out using remote methods or in small groups. LiU is monitoring the development of the corona pandemic, and adapting its activities to the advice and recommendations given by government agencies. It is still the case, for example, that we should get vaccinated, and we must stay at home and get tested if we experience any symptoms. Further, the advice to wash hands often and to keep at a distance if possible is still in place. LiU recommends that great care is taken at events with many participants.
