Lifted COVID-19 restrictions
 
As of 29 September, the Swedish Public Health Agency's regulations that applied during major parts of the pandemic was lifted. KI has therefore removed restrictions for teaching facilities.

However, it is still important to stay at home and avoid contact with others in the event of signs of illness, to test yourself for symptoms and to follow the advice and guidelines for tracing infection. Read more about what applies from 29 September on the Swedish Public Health Agency's website

KI encourages students and staff to get vaccinated. Students and staff who have not yet been vaccinated against COVID-19 can do so at one of Karolinska University Hospital's two clinics, Solna Gamla Karolinska or Huddinge Karolinska. More information on vaccination can be found on the page for Student information about education regarding COVID-19.
