COVID-19 | Guidelines
We are in a special situation and we all need to continue to live life differently than we are used to. Right now, many people are at home a lot of the time and we need to help each other in order for everyone to feel safe in their home. We all, each one of us, have a responsibility not to increase the spread of infection in society and in our local environment. If you have symptoms of illness, it is important that you stay at home and that you do everything you can to minimize the risk of spreading infection.
We follow the authorities’ recommendations and keep a distance to one another. We want to protect both our staff and of course you students the best way we can. We urge you who need help or information to contact us by phone or email instead of visiting our House caretakers’ offices.
Help reducing the risk of spreading Covid-19:
- As far as possible, study and work from home.
- Keep a distance to other people, indoors as well as outdoors, at home as well as in public places.
- Avoid public transport if possible. Instead, ride a bike or walk .
- Wash your hands carefully every time you leave your home and every time you get back, also wash your hands every time you go into or leave common areas.
- Clean, wash and wipe all surfaces thoroughly when you’ve been in the common kitchen or other common areas.
- If you live in a corridor, make kitchen schedules so that you do not all use the common kitchen at the same time. Stick to the schedule.
You may feel lonely studying at a distance, having fewer social encounters than usual. It can be a good idea to use social media to keep in touch with neighbours and the outside world. Encourage other students and residents on how to make the most of the situation by tagging us on Instagram #sssb with tips and pictures of your best ideas on how to study, and fun things to do, while you are at home. Follow us on Facebook, Stockholms Studentbostäder (SSSB), and Instagram, sssb_studentbostader.
It´s important that we, together, make the best of the current situation. Thank you for helping us protect our staff, yourself, other students and other people in society!
