After the new restrictions and strict recommendations that were presented on Thursday by the Public Health Agency, the Board of Föreningen Ekonomerna has taken the decision to cancel the Finsittnings that would have taken place 2nd and 3rd of November. It is in the light of the recent development of the spread and the new guidelines from the government that we see no other choice but to cancel. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause but hope you understand the decision. All tickets will be repaid and an email has been sent to all ticket holders.

— Update 19/3 —
Due to the ongoing situation, it is with a lot of sadness that the board has decided to continue to keep Festningen closed, aswell as cancelling/postponing events that are due in the near future. Since we (unfortunately) can’t predict the future Festningen is going to be closed until further notice. Even though it is a dull decision for the board to make, due to the nature of the ongoing situation it is important that we as a student association take our social responsibility and follow the guidelines from Stockholm University, as well as Folkhälsomyndigheten. We hope to see you all as soon as the situation has calmed down a bit!
Stockholm University has decided in accordance to the (at this time) state regulations, to close their venues for everyone but their employees from March 18th until further notice. Hence the study areas at the campus won’t be accessible. Due to this decision all courses and exams will be taught and performed through alternative ways, mostly through digital aids. The head of courses are responsible for finding suitable solutions.

Stockholm University Senior Management Team decided on March 16th that Stockholm University will switch to online teaching and examinations as a way to contribute to reducing the spread of infection and at the same time continue to be able to conduct business. Based on the Swedish government’s announcement on March 17th, the transition to online education or alternative forms of teaching will take place from March 18th. Stockholm University works intensively at both central and departmental level to ensure that the transition to digital solutions is as smooth as possible and can include as many teaching opportunities as possible. Various alternatives for measures that are difficult or impossible to implement digitally are being considered and are expected to have solutions shortly. Decisions regarding the opening of premises and continued functioning of the campus are expected to be made during the day. (From SU’s website)
