Rules to reduce the risk of COVID-19

In order to ensure the safety of students, doctoral students and employees, the following rules are introduced to significantly reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection during their participation in classes on-campus.

Students taking part in classes:

1.    All persons are required to disinfect their hands using available disinfectants before entering the building
2.    All students should get acquainted with information, procedures and instructions on ensuring safety during the COVID-19 epidemic posted on information boards located near the front desks before their classes begin.
3.    Students attending their classes for the first time are required to read and accept the information on the conditions of continuing teaching activities and follow the safety rules related to the teaching process sent to them by e-mail or via USOS.  Each student is obliged to agree with the above mentioned rules by signing and sending a signed statement to the Student Office or submitting a signed statement to the teacher.
4.    The following situations exclude students from taking part in classes offered on-campus:
a)    quarantine or self-isolation;
b)    residing with someone in quarantine or self-isolation; also residing with someone showing symptoms of acute respiratory infection (fever, cough, shortness of breath).
5.    Students attending classes are obliged to follow the anti-epidemic guidelines adopted in a given University building, available on the information boards. In particular, students are required to:
a)    disinfect their hands before entering the building;
b)    leave all outerwear and items such as cell phones, backpacks, and handbags in the cloakroom or another indicated room;
c)    use personal protective equipment (masks or face screens covering the nose and mouth) while in the building and during classes;
d)    maintain a minimum social distance of 1.5 m from one another
e)    refrain from exchanging any personal items in class.
6.    Between classes, students may leave the building in which the classes take place or stay on its premises, provided that there is adequate space to respect the social distance principle.
7.    Failure to comply with anti-epidemic principles will result in the temporary discharge from classes.

If a student manifests unexplained respiratory symptoms, then he/she can be immediately removed from the class and isolated in a designated room in the building. If the student's medical condition does not require an emergency medical team’s help, he/she will be required to go to the his/her place of residence by individual transport. In case of a sudden deterioration of health, the teacher calls the ambulance to transport the student to the nearest designated hospital ward, and immediately informs the Dean of the Faculty and the County Sanitary and Epidemiological Station in Poznań about this situation, which in turn conducts an initial epidemiological interview. All areas which a student came in contact with should be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected upon his/her departure.
