OSAKO keeps on following the situation

Student union follows updates on corona virus actively. We will also keep in contact with Oamk and SAMOK. OSAKO wants to act in a responsible way and keep the health and safety of our students first. We aim to help keeping students updated about the situation and changes in it.

Changes in student events

The Finnish government announced restrictions and recommendations about public events yesterday. Also Oamk will cancel all big events and seminars until the end of May. Some student events have already been cancelled in Oulu. Unfortunately, also OSAKO cancels the Ranua trip this Saturday the 14.3. No decisions has been made about upcoming events this Spring, but we will inform about then as soon as possible.

Remember to wash your hands and cough towards your armpit! Even if you didn’t belong to any risk groups someone else around you might.
