With the number of Covid-19 cases rising in Sweden and other countries, travel is becoming increasinglyrestricted. Countries are imposing stricter measures to impede the spread of the disease, including quarantine for people from risk areas and suspension of or restrictions on transportation.
The list of areas deemed high risk is liable to change at any given moment, and with it our regulations and restrictions on who is given access to our premises. We must also consider the possible risk that our travelling poses for the countries and regions we visit.
Therefore, the Stockholm School of Economics urges our students, staff and faculty to reconsider any non-essential travel, both work/study-related and private.
- Do not travel to or through affected regions listed by the Swedish authorities. Failure to follow this recommendation will result in being denied access to SSE premises upon return to Sweden.
- Re-consider any travel and look into other options together with your manager.
Currently, the affected regions listed by the MFA include:
- China, except for Hong Kong and Macao
- Italy: the regions of Aosta Valley, Piedmont, Liguria, Lombardy, Emilia-Romagna, Trentino-Alto Adige, Veneto, Friuli Venezia Giulia and Tuscany. The rest of Italy, as of March 9.
- South Korea
Additionally, listed by the Public Health Agency of Sweden as risk zone:
- The Austrian state of Tyrol, as of March 10.
