Coronavirus

School of Life Sciences FHNW’s handling of the Coronavirus

Updated content (24 June 2021)

  • New FHNW protection concept from 28 June 2021
  • Face coverings mandatory in areas accessed by the public (including classrooms)

FHNW protection concept from 28 June 2021

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the “special situation” as defined by the Epidemics Act has been in force in Switzerland since 19 June 2020. Based on this act, the Federal Council issued the Covid 19 Ordinance, which has now been amended (on 23 June 2021).

In accordance with the latest FHNW Covid-19 protection concept, the following apply until further notice:

In-person activities

In-person gatherings in the schools are permitted provided the protective measures (distancing, face coverings, hygiene) are observed.

Learning rooms for students and participants in continuing education are open. Libraries and workplaces in the campuses are accessible again without restrictions, provided that protective measures (distancing, face coverings, hygiene) are observed. Please consult the library websites for their opening hours.

Working from home during the corona pandemic

Teleworking from home is recommended for staff and must be discussed with line managers on a case-by-case basis.

The imposed and indefinite situation of working from home is difficult for everyone. Specialists in occupational and organisational psychology at the FHNW School of Applied Psychology have put together the most important tips and advice for social-distanced working during the corona pandemic.

Obligation to wear a face covering at the FHNW

Face coverings continue to be mandatory in areas of the FHNW accessed by the public (including classrooms).

Covid-19 saliva tests

At the following campuses the FHNW offers Covid-19 saliva tests (pooled PCR saliva tests):

  • Brugg-Windisch
  • Muttenz
  • Olten (Riggenbachstrasse 16 and Von Roll-Strasse 10)
  • Basel (HGK, HSM (Musik-Akademie campus and Jazz campus), HSW Peter Merian)
  • Solothurn (PH)

Participation in the tests is voluntary and anonymous vis-à-vis the FHNW. Details of the test concept can be found on Inside FHNW (only accessible for members of the FHNW).
Taking a Covid-19 saliva test does not exempt from compliance with the protective measures.

Detailed information about the current situation for staff and students is available on Inside FHNW
