It was wonderful to see so many CEC’ers at the IRL fika in the kitchen today! Now we can finally resume our tradition with live management info, good coffee, and good conversations. Since we no longer have any restrictions regarding number of persons in the kitchen (see more below), we will from now on have the management info with the fika in place in the kitchen, with hybrid opportunity for those who participate at a distance.

Covid update – regulations from 1 November
From Monday next week 1 November, you are all welcome back to the office to the extent you like, and you and your line manager have agreed upon. There are no more restrictions regarding number of persons in each office, meeting room or lunchroom– all seats can be used.

There are still general recommendations from the Swedish authorities in place:

  • stay home when you are ill
  • in some cases, you should also get tested, i.e., if you have been abroad
  • if you are not fully vaccinated, there are special advice
  • there are still restrictions regarding travelling

The pandemic is not over, so the recommendations could change. Read more and stay updated on the links below:

Management info
When returning to the office, please, don’t forget to return your screen and chair, there are no spare ones.
The administrative staff will continue to partly work from home (up to 2 days a week), but you can always get in touch via Teams or e-mail. You can find information about who is in the office outside each person’s office and soon on a whiteboard in the admin corridor.

Next week there is a school holiday, and thus less staffing in the administration and in general. There will be fika but no seminar next week.

The next newsletter will be sent out on 18 November.

Finally, we ask you to save the date for the CEC Christmas Dinner in the evening of 14 December. More information will come. If you have ideas and would like to participate in planning some fun activity during the dinner, you are most welcome to contact Camilla King camilla [dot] king [at] cec [dot] lu [dot] se (camilla[dot]king[at]cec[dot]lu[dot]se)
