There are no coronavirus-related restrictions at Xamk.

We follow the general hygiene guidelines of the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL). The guidelines concern all types of respiratory tract infections.

Stay healthy and protect others

  • Take the recommended coronavirus and influenza vaccinations
  • Stay at home while sick
    • If you get sick, stay at home until the symptoms have clearly subsided and, for instance, the fever is gone.
    • After sickness, nasal discharge and coughing may continue for a long time and do not prevent returning to work or studies.
  • Wash your hands and cough and sneeze into your sleeve.
  • Wash your hands frequently with water and soap. If necessary, use hand sanitizer.
  • Assess your own risk, wear a face mask if necessary, and keep a distance from others
    • A face mask prevents droplets from spreading into the environment.
    • Keeping a distance helps to protect both yourself and other people from infection.


We monitor the national and regional instructions and update our own instructions accordingly when necessary.

Region-specific vaccination instructions are available on the websites of wellbeing services counties or the former hospital districts.
