As you all are aware by now, the government decided to bring back the covid-restrictions a few weeks ago. We are all hoping the situation will get better soon. We encourage you to stay active, go for walks or jogs outdoor, and find some corona-safe activities to keep moving.
Our tournaments are on hold until further notice, but when the situation is better, we will start to host them again! Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook to see our updates. We are planning some corona-safe events or competitions soon – you don’t want to miss that!
We want to say thanks to our sponsors TS Reklam. They are offering great printed products for all occasions, make sure to look them up. https://www.tsreklam.se/
Keep a distance, act responsible, and stay healthy. See you soon!
After recommendations from the government, KTH has closed its premises for students. Because of that, we will also close Nymble until further notice. We have chosen to do so because we do not want people to gather in Nymble when they cannot go elsewhere on campus.
All associations, subgroups and chapters have been notified by email.
Right now some big changes are being made so that teaching at KTH will be done remotely. We would like to know how it works practically at your courses, so we can lift the issues you experience with KTH.
THS: WE ARE CONFIDENT IN KTH’S HANDLING OF THE CORONAVIRUS
During the morning I’ve taken part in a meeting with the leadership of KTH regarding the handling of the coronavirus. My impression is that education is being highly prioritized and the intention is to find solutions so that course activities, lectures, exams and so on can still happen to the largest possible degree, even if that means it occurs by other means than we are used to.
KTH will later today come out with information regarding what will be happening and in the near future. KTH are well aware there will be consequences for this stretching well into the future. My impression so far has been that everyone is and will be doing their absolute best to mitigate these consequences for students. I ask for your patience and understanding that it is very hard to give concrete information about the future at the moment and that the most urgent issues are being prioritized.
Take care of yourselves, stay home if you are sick and keep updated on how THS is working with the virus throughths.kth.se/corona
During the spring of 2019 we revived the THS ball after 40 years without one at THS central. We want this to be a tradition again, so we are looking for a few people who want to lead the projekt during the spring of 2020!

THS is looking for a delegation to SFSFUM, the annual meeting for SFS, the Swedish National Union of Students. Because all meeting documents and discussions at SFSFUM are in Swedish, you need to understand Swedish to be in the delegation. Read more about the delegation in the Swedish version of this post.
