SLU's organisation for handling the effects of the coronavirus

SLU's crisis organisation is activated to handle issues and any new decisions from the government.

The crisis management team meets every second week to take any necessary new decisions.

The web page on corona, with its web pages for different target groups, are updated continuously. Also, employees with operational responsibility receive regular updates by email, as do students.

We are working as quickly as possible to get out correct information, in  Swedish and English. 

Our shared responsibility 

  • Get vaccinated if you have not already done so.
  • Unvaccinated people should continue to be careful.
  • Stay at home if you feel even slightly unwell.
  • Feeling unwell? Go and get tested for COVID-19. To know where, please visit 1177.
  • If you are infected with Covid-19 – follow the information above!


Staff with questions about corona related issues, or who need practical advice in case they become infected, should contact their immediate superior.

Students should contact their programme director of studies, contact details can be found on the programme web pages.

Both staff and students should keep themselves updated via http://krisinformation.se/en.

If you suspect that you have contracted the virus, read more at http://krisinformation.se/en (emergency information from Swedish authorities), or phone 113 13 (national information number for information on emergencies) and ask for advice.
