The campuses are normally open until further notice.

Karelia UAS recom­mends that all members of staff work remotely whenever possible. In addition, Karelia UAS strongly recom­mends avoiding all travelling. All work-related trips abroad and in Finland are prohibited until further notice. Furthermore, Karelia UAS does not accept any inter­na­tional guests at the moment. All meetings will also be conducted remotely.

Both students and members of staff returning to Finland from abroad must stay home for 14 days before returning to the school/workplace. Students are advised not to go on inter­na­tional exchange at the moment.

Employees may be on sick leave for 7 days by informing their supervisor.
