Information regarding the corona virus
The Sámi University of Applied Sciences (SUAS) monitors the corona virus situation continuously and puts measures into action based on advises from the authorities and own assessments. Health and safety is the number one priority, even though we have no indication saying that any of our students or staff has been infected by the virus.
Diehtosiida (SUAS’ campus) will be closed for all students. Students’ key cards will no longer give access. Staff is advised to work from home. Do not come to Diehtosiida if you are ill or getting sick. This applies even if you do not suspect being infected by the corona virus. Staff should rather work at home, than possibly infecting coworkers. Do not invite/let in guests and visitors to Diehtosiida.
Following national advice on preventing the spread of corona infection, will all SUAS’ seminars and conferences until June will be posponed. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause for the individual, and will return with more information as soon as possible.
The municipal doctor has advised that we should be especially careful when we have been traveling, if the virus accompanies to Kautokeino. Because of this, employees who now are arriving home from travels will work from home for the rest of this week and next week, even if they do not have any flu symptoms. Do not travel if it is not needed.
