Instructions on travelling

All LUT and LAB employees and students must cancel their work-related travel abroad in March and April. We also recommend avoiding vacations abroad in March and April.

Please cancel your work-related trips through the same channel or service through which you originally made the booking. In unclear cases, LUT employees should contact Jenni Larsson (This email address is being protected from spambots.

Also all employees and students returning from a work-related trip or vacation abroad must work or study remotely for 14 days after their return. The remote work period starts on the day of arrival. Employees must inform their supervisor of their absence immediately (phone call, text message or e-mail) and send e-mail to HR (This email address is being protected from spambots.

If you are currently on a work-related journey, we recommend you move up your return date.

Due to the elevated risk of transmitting the coronavirus, LUT and LAB will cancel all visits by guests from other countries.

Our objective is to continue working and studying as normally as possible while doing our part to slow down the spreading of the coronavirus in accordance with guidelines issued by authorities. We recommend that meetings between campuses be held through remote connections. Also work-related travel to other areas in Finland should be avoided.

What to do if you are sick

If you experience any symptoms of respiratory infections, you should stay home. You may stay home without a medical certificate for 7 calendar days. Inform your supervisor of your absence immediately (phone call, text message or e-mail) and send e-mail to HR (This email address is being protected from spambots.

Instructions on remote work

We will continue working as normally as possible, but we are preparing for the possibility that remote work and studies may be required. If the university needs to shift to remote work and studies, instructions regarding it will be issued separately. However, we recommend you take your work laptop and cell phone as well as their chargers home with you every day in case of an unforeseen need for remote work.
