Officiall Statement from LundaEkonomerna with new decision (2020-03-17)

As you most certainly are aware of, the current situation regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is escalating. The Swedish government with its various authorities are implementing preventive measures that have affected us all.

 

Today it was announced that LUSEM in accordance with the recommendations given by the government will change all teaching and examination to online solutions, thus moving all educational activities to digital platforms for the entirety of the Spring semester 2020. Along with this, the government also requested that all students continue their studies to the greatest extent possible within their home. LundaEkonomerna will be briefed with any changes within LUSEM and changes to course plans will always have to be approved by us, as the student representatives of all students at LUSEM.

 

The Board of LundaEkonomerna is of course saddened by this situation caused by COVID-19, and is trying to make the best decision possible with the information available. The situation is changing on a daily basis and is therefore impossible to predict. However, on the basis of LUSEM’s decision and in accordance with recommendations given by the government, LundaEkonomerna will perform all our operations via digital solutions and activities that don’t have this possibility will be canceled or postponed. This decision will be valid for two weeks starting wednesday 18th of March and will then be revised weekly by The Board, and might be subject to change. This entails that all events and activities scheduled in this time period during the coming two weeks, that can’t be moved to a digital platform, will unfortunately be canceled. 

 

This way we make sure to follow all recommendations given by authorities regarding students, which is of uttermost importance since students are the main reason why the student union exists. 

 

Regarding all the students at LUSEM’s education we must refer you to contacting LUSEM. However, we are in constant contact with the school and updated with the current situation and decisions. More information can be found on their webpage*.

 

Lastly, we urge you to follow the recommendations given by the Swedish government and authorities. At the moment (17th of March) it’s requested that students study from their home. Make sure to stay updated regarding the situation and receive official information at the website for crisis information administered by the government**, as well as the website of the Public Health Agency of Sweden***
