Introduction to Tjärnö Laboratory

Tjärnö Marine Laboratory and COVID-19

We invite groups for education, but with limitations in numbers to prevent spread of virus. Guests are given larger physical space in bedrooms, lecture halls, labs and dining hall. Guests are separated from permanent personnel as good as possible: separate entrances and toilets and different lunch serving times. Some activities are not possible at all. Personal responsibility is important: wash your hands often, keep your distance, stay in your bedroom if you feel unwell and notify your teacher. Complete pandemic rules on the Booking page.
