The recommendations for face masks and events for less than 20 people valid until 3 December

Following the recommendation of the regional COVID-19 coordination group of Northern Ostrobothnia Medical District, the University of Oulu recommends using a face mask in all public indoor spaces and public events in the Oulu city area until 3 December 2020.

The recommendation for use of the face mask applies to all university facilities, but not to situations where a safety distance between 1–2 metres can be maintained with certainty or when a person is working alone in his/her own office, for example. The recommendation applies to people over 15 years of age.

The regional COVID-19 coordination group of Northern Ostrobothnia Medical District recommends that private events for more than 20 people will not be held. This applies also to participation in such events. The recommendation will be valid until 3 December 2020.

The COVID-19 preparedness team of the University of Oulu decided on 28 October that due to the COVID-19 contagion situation and the development of the overall pandemic situation, the University of Oulu will continue remote work and distant studies as a rule until 31 May 2021. Teaching on campus is provided only if it cannot be arranged remotely (e.g. laboratory and other experimental teaching). When a safety distance of 1–2 metres is not possible, face masks or other protective equipment required by the situation will be shared for students.
