Re­com­mend­a­tion for tele­work­ing 

The recommendation to telework is valid until 30 June 2021. A stricter policy for teleworking as much as is possible continues until 30 April 2021.

Research

Whenever possible, all research must be conducted by telecommuting. If working part- or full-time on University premises is necessary for research purposes, the matter must be agreed with the relevant supervisor. Working on University premises is not permitted on the basis of a personal notification.

At the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, directors of department are responsible for organising the permission procedure at their respective departments in cooperation with the relevant principal investigators/immediate supervisors. This must be implemented by creating a timetable for laboratory work so that it is possible to indicate which persons are working in a specific facility at a specific time. The procedure where a separate permit for launching research activities is needed will be discontinued, but department directors will monitor facility use and can prioritise it, when necessary. Upon request, department directors must be able to provide reports on the individuals who have worked at the facilities at a specific time.
