High schools and Vantaa Vocational College Varia will begin the fall term in contact instruction in Vantaa

The metropolitan area coronavirus coordination group assembled on Tuesday, August 3, 2021. The group decided that secondary education institutions begin the fall term in contact instruction in the metropolitan area. The decision applies to vocational College Varia and high schools in Vantaa.

High schools’ and Varia's 2nd- and 3rd-year students will begin the fall term next Wednesday, August 11, 2021. Varia’s new students began their studies today, August 4.

The City of Vantaa’s educational institutions will apply current coronavirus safety recommendations (such as wearing face masks and other protective gear, hand hygiene, social distancing).

The educational institutions will offer the face masks to students belonging to extended compulsory education (first-year students). Other students must acquire their own face masks. If a student has forgotten to bring their own mask, they can acquire one at their educational institution, when required. Also those who have already received the second coronavirus vaccination—that is, the booster shot—must wear a face mask in the educational institution. On-the-job learning will adopt the coronavirus instructions valid at the workplace.

People aged 16 and older can book an appointment for a coronavirus vaccination in the entire metropolitan area. Those who live in the metropolitan area can make a vaccination appointment online at: https://www.koronarokotusaika.fi/.

We encourage all students to take the coronavirus vaccination, so that we can improve the rapidly deteriorated coronavirus situation. That will give us better chances to continue the fall term in contact instruction.

Welcome to study!
