Coronavirus, advice for the Sapienza Community

On this page, all members of our community can find information and guidelines for university activities based on the current COVID-19 regulations

COVID-19 emergency: Phase 3

Starting from September 2020, the University will move to the organisational modalities of Phase 3. Precautionary measures have been updated, based on the gradual resumption of in-person activities and new specific scheduling of in-person lessons, with new documents for the different activities and guidelines for classroom teaching.
The doctors of the School of Specialisation 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.

Where the structure considers it doable and appropriate, the activity may continue remotely.

From June 3 until August 2020, unless otherwise specified, it is possible to:

  • activate new curricular internships, online or mixed modality (remotely and in-person);
  • add, for internships that have been already activated and suspended or carried out remotely, the mixed modality option: distance learning activities and in-person activities at the hosting institution/organisation;
