COVID-19 emergency

Since September 2020, the University has updated its precautionary measures, with new documents for the different activities and guidelines for classroom teaching.
The doctors of the Specialisation School in Hygiene and Preventive Medicine of Sapienza University, supported by the University Communication Office and the InfoSapienza Centre, created a video which illustrates the four fundamental rules to face the resumption of activities after the COVID-19 emergency in complete safety for oneself and others.

Here the four steps in English:

  • Wash your hands, and do it often. Use water and soap or hydroalcoholic solutions.
  • With fever or other respiratory symptoms, stay at home—for example, cough, cold, sore throat, gastrointestinal symptoms, alterations in smell or taste.
  • Physical distancing is very important. Two metres (around six feet) or more but never less than 1 metre.
  • Wear your mask at all times in public spaces and when you cannot keep the six-foot rule.
