LiU to continue working from home until 28 March
In accordance with the extended national restrictions that the government presented on 21 January, LiU continues to encourage its students and co-workers to work from home. The decision from the government is initially valid until 7 February, but LiU has previous made a decision that all unnecessary presence on LiU premises is to be avoided. This decision is now valid until 28 March.
LiU will enter what is known as Pandemic Level 4 on 1 February (as described in previous article at Insidan). In addition, LiU follows the national restrictions laid down by the government. The government announced on Thursday 21 January that the current restrictions have been extended until 7 February. The main effect of this for LiU is that only co-workers whose physical presence is absolutely necessary are to be present on campus.
“We have followed the previous decision, and will, of course, continue to do so now that it has been extended. Our campuses are open only those who absolutely must be there to work. All others, students and co-workers, are to work from home. It is important that we all contribute in any every we can to reduce the spread of infection”, says Joakim Nejdeby, leader of the LiU crisis management team.
Extract from the government decision, January 1 2021:
On 22 December 2020, the government decided to commission all governmental agencies to take further measures to increase the fraction of employees who work from home. Government agencies are to ensure that only co-workers whose physical presence is necessary to carry out operations are present on the premises of the government agency. This was initially valid until 24 January 2021, and has now been extended until 7 February 2021.
