1. Covid-19 prevention and containment measures

 

In the first semester of the 2020/2021 academic year, our university restarts its educational programme and on-campus activities in compliance with the current regulations in force. We have reorganized our university, offering the possibility to restart part of our on-campus lectures, taking into account the capacity of our classrooms, which have been redefined in compliance with the ministerial provisions for this health emergency.

The University has set specific prevention, hygiene and sanitation, logistics and flow management, orientation and communication procedures in order to reduce gatherings and close proximity with other users within our community.

 

The five rules for a safe return to on-campus classes:

1. If you have a temperature above 37.5°, cough, cold or acute symptoms of respiratory infections etc., DO NOT come to the university.

2. Wear a surgical mask and cover mouth and nose when you are inside the university premises (classrooms, laboratories, common spaces, etc.)

3. When you are in classroom sit only on marked seats (in some cases they will be highlighted by special markings or in others only some seats will be available), avoid social gatherings (especially during entry and exit stages) and physical contact, and do not change - even temporarily - the layout of furnishings (tables, chairs, etc.).

4. Wash your hands frequently or use the specific hand sanitizer dispensers to keep them clean; avoid touching your face and mask.

5. Follow the instructions on the signage carefully.

 

We recommend downloading and activating the Immuni app in order to facilitate contact tracing.

Please find below some general guidelines defining the procedures and rules of conduct to follow:

2. Access to university premises policy

 

When entering the premises, students and teaching staff may be subjected to body temperature check (the measurement will be carried out in accordance with the current privacy regulations) with a non-contact thermometer. Should their temperature exceed 37.5°, their access to university premises will not be allowed. People in this condition will be temporarily isolated, provided with masks (when not already wearing them) and invited to contact their GP and follow his/her instructions as soon as possible.

Access to university premises is reserved to the students attending lessons. Students must register through the dedicated online reservation system for each day of on-campus activity.

3. Rules of conduct within university premises

 

Classrooms and teaching equipment

 A new capacity has been defined for each classroom in order to guarantee, on the basis of their plant characteristics and volumes, an adequate air exchange and an effective dilution of the viral load that may be present.

 Workstations have been placed at a minimum distance of 1 metre in order to guarantee social distancing both during lessons and during entry/exit phases and in general when approaching workstations.

 The layout of the workstations cannot be modify for the abovementioned reasons. We kindly ask everyone's collaboration and sense of responsibility on this point.

 Teachers’ desks have been placed at a 2-meter distance from the students. 

 It is compulsory to wear surgical masks in all indoor university premises and throughout your stay.

 Lecturers will be able to teach without wearing their masks when they are at a constant distance of at least 2 metres from the students. However, when it is necessary to reduce this distance (e.g. for revisions) the lecturer must wear the mask.

 Daily sanitation procedures are applied, according to the indications of the ISS provided for in the "Indications for the implementation of measures to contain SARS-CoV-2 contagion through sanitation procedures of non-health structures (surfaces, interiors) and clothing” provisions of the Ministry of Health.

 Lectures have been planned in order to keep the group of students inside the same classroom for the entire day. When a rotation is necessary the spaces will be sanitized before the new use.

 Collaborators, teaching staff and students shall increase the supply of fresh air by opening doors and windows at every lesson change and at every intermediate break (and in any case at least twice a day).

 Active sanitation kits with UVC light and catalyst grid have been installed inside the air conditioning / heating systems and the air recirculation function has been eliminated, where possible, or reduced.

 Each classroom has been equipped at the entrance with a dispenser of hydroalcoholic solutions to allow hand sanitisation.

 The computers available at the front desks undergo a sanitising treatment after each use.

 

Common spaces

Entry and exit flows and internal movements have been evaluated for each Iuav campus, outlining the appropriate prevention measures to prevent gatherings outside the classroom:

 Adequate signage has been set up in each campus in order to mark its capacity and provide guidelines on the use of common areas and services.

 Every campus will be supervised by the staff in charge of verifying the application of anti-contagion measures for a COVID-secure environment.

 Wherever possible, dedicated toilets have been identified for each classroom.

 Toilets, frequently used areas and touchpoints such as handrails, handles and keypads of vending machines are cleaned and sanitised several times a day.

 People must maintain social distancing and wear face covering inside lounge and catering areas.

 When outdoor and social distancing cannot be maintained, people must wear a surgical mask.

4. Book your seat in class

 

To ensure the proper functioning of the reservation system and compliance with classroom capacity rules, it is essential that each student attends the courses of the teachers they will be assigned to. Hence, for this first semester it is not possible to change lecturer.

Each teacher will plan the on-campus educational activities in such a way as to ensure that all students have the opportunity to attend university premises. Please check your lecturers' instructions before proceeding with your booking.

Please note that not all courses require attendance and therefore booking - in particular the theoretical courses will be mainly run online. 

You can find all the instructions for booking your seat at this link:

http://www.iuav.it/studenti/insegnamen/prenotazio/index.htm

This service will also be available soon on mobile phones through the MyIuav app, available for Android and IPhone.

Students must configure their own booking profile by selecting their degrees within the educational offerings and the courses they would like to attend; then, they will be able to book a seat in the classroom for each course they selected in their profile (provided that they are scheduled with on-campus lectures). 

Reservations can be made from 7 days before the lesson, while they can be cancelled until the day before.

The booking system will produce a QR CODE – that the students must either print or take with them on their smartphone for verification at the entrance of the premises.

 

Access to the library policy

Upon reservation all the services concerning bibliographic heritage are already active: consultation, loan, photocopying.  Booking process and other relevant information are available at this link:

http://sbd.iuav.it/news/riapertura-graduale-della-biblioteca.html

Please note that in order to access the library you must undergo your body temperature check, wear a surgical mask and sanitize your hands at the entrance, scrupulously observing the instructions provided along the way.

 

Access to laboratories for teaching and training policy

Access of teaching staff and students to labs for teaching purposes must be previously agreed on with the Labs Supervisors.

Labs Supervisors are in charge of calibrating the use of shared equipment taking into account the cleaning shifts, so as to guarantee the sanitation service.

 

Violation of regulatory requirements and university anti-contagion protocol

The University invites lecturers, teaching staff and students to co-operate for their own safety and that of others. In the event of any behaviour that does not comply with the provisions of the law and with the guidelines contained in the Anti-Contagion Protocol, the University will take appropriate measures.

If students in the classroom do not comply with the containment measures (e.g. failure to use the mask during the lesson), lecturers have to invite them to comply and, if necessary, teaching staff will be authorised to suspend the lesson.

6. Management of a suspected/positive case

 

Student with suspected symptoms at his/her home

If you are a student experiencing an increase in body temperature above 37.5°C or other flu-like symptoms at home you must remain at home.

 

Student experiencing suspected symptoms at the university

If you are a student experiencing an increase in body temperature above 37.5°C or other flu-like symptoms whilst attending your classes inside the university premises, you must promptly inform the lecturer.

Once informed, your lecturer will phone the reception that will lead you to an area dedicated to self-isolation and invite you to contact your GP. 

Do not move around the campus or go to other offices. Do not go to the hospital. Follow your GP’s instructions.

Anyone who comes into contact with the suspected case must wear a surgical mask.

Sanitising staff will be in charge of cleaning and disinfecting the surfaces of the self-isolation area, of the classroom and any toilets used.

If you tested Covid-positive, the University will notify the relevant authorities and will initiate the contact tracing procedure.

 

Student tested positive for Sars-Cov-2

Returning to the university premises after being tested positive for Sars-Cov-2 will be possible only after confirmation of successful recovery and negative tests. The University will identify and inform close contacts, who will be quarantined for 14 days from the date they had close contact with the positive case.

The University will perform an extraordinary sanitation of the classroom and adjacent spaces, as well as any space used by the person who has tested positive such as offices, toilets, vending machines and common spaces. These areas will be closed until the sanitation process is completed.

The closure of a classroom or spaces of the University will be evaluated according to the number of positive cases, possible clusters and the level of virus circulation within the community.

8. General guidelines and recommendations for the prevention of Covid-19

 

The University has adopted all the compulsory prevention measures as well as additional measures to guarantee a COVID-secure environment within its premises, however it is clear that the total success of the planned measures can only be achieved with the complete collaboration and sense of responsibility of all the parties involved (teachers, students, staff, suppliers, collaborators, etc.).

Strictly complying with the abovementioned provisions and rules of conduct inside our premises by any party involved is the only possible way to guarantee everyone’s safety.

Currently, with the exception of the cases under specific health provisions or by order of the relevant authorities, it is not necessary to carry out Covid tests - such as serological tests or nose and throat swabs - in order to access the University's premises.

It may instead be useful to get a flu vaccine, only on medical prescription that ascertains for each individual the existence of all the conditions required.
