Coronavirus COVID-19

The student health care is functioning as normally as possible despite the coronaepidemic. If you need an appointment with the student healthcare services please contact the student nurse by phone. Consulting hours (times when you can come to the nurse without booking an appointment) are closed for now.

Please notice that it is forbidden for a person with respiratory infection symptoms or a person who has returned from a trip from abroad within two weeks or a person ordered under quarantine or isolation to arrive to his/her appointment.

The travel restrictions concerning international travelling do not apply if at the time of arrival a person is returning to Finland from a country, that is not listed as the country under border control and travel restriction by the Finnish Government.

Impacts of the coronavirus epidemic:

Tuberculosis and tuberculosis examination

Tuberculosis is a rare disease in Finland. It has been almost completely eradicated due to good medical care. If you come from a country categorised in a risk group where the occurrence of tuberculosis is high, you may have the disease and infect those around you without knowing.

As you plan to stay in Finland for more than three months, you have the right to a free chest X-ray. The X-ray is voluntary. Its purpose is to examine whether your lungs show any changes indicative of tuberculosis.
