Measures currently enforced
From 15 February 2021, the following measures are in place at the University of Primorska to prevent the spread of COVID-19:
Laboratory exercises, individual work with students, exams and seminars are allowed at the premises of the University of Primorska, under the condition that the guidelines of the University of Primorska for carrying out work on the premises of the university during the current measures against the spread of COVID-19 disease are followed. In doing so:
- the number of students participating at seminars and exams is limited to 11 people (11 + teacher);
- it is necessary to maintain a minimum interpersonal distance of 1.5 meters between individuals - a smaller distance is allowed only in specialized lecture halls (laboratories, practice rooms, music classrooms, simulation rooms, computer lecture halls, etc.),
- all students and staff must wear masks in common areas. More specific requirements for wearing a mask are published on the university webpage.
- Teaching staff has to be negative on the COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test weekly.
The implementation of lectures and seminars with the participation of over 10 people is adapted:
- Wherever possible, teaching is implemented distantly;
- If teaching cannot be effectively implemented distantly, teaching activities are postponed;
- If learning institutions, such as hospitals, senior citizens homes, schools and similar, do not enable training and teaching, these activities are postponed.
Leadership of a university member and rectorate organises work in way stat study, research and administrative processes run as smoothly as possible.
MAXIMUM NUMBER OF PERSONS IN A ROOM
The maximum number of people who can be in a room at the same time is limited to:
- 1 person in work room (e.g. office, laboratory and similar);
- 11 people in general lecture rooms (10 students and teacher);
- 17 people in specialized lecture halls (15 students, teacher and technician), where it is not possible to provide a minimum interpersonal distance.
The limitation does not apply to Student Residences, which set their own limitations.
BUISNESS TRIPS AND MOBILITIES
Business trips abroad and outgoing international mobility of students and staff lasting more than a month are allowed without limitations. Shorter business trips and mobilities are allowed, under the condition, that quarantine is not required at the destination, on the way and upon return. Incoming mobility is permitted, following the regulations defined in the Decision on ordering and implementing measures to prevent the spread of the infectious disease COVID-19 at border crossings at the external border, at checkpoints at internal borders and in the interior of the Republic of Slovenia.
WORK FROM HOME
Staff makes arrangements with the leadership of university members and rectorate on the organisation of work (at the university premises, from home, absence from work). In doing so, the leadership of university members and rectorate organises the work in a way that all basic necessary processes function without major interruptions:
- Cleaning and maintenance,
- Postal services,
- IT support for staff,
- Other necessary processes.
RESIDING IN STUDENT RESIDENCES
The stay of students in student residences is limited in line with each Governmental decree on temporary prohibition of gathering of people in education institutes.
The leadership and management of student residences decides on reasonable grounds to stay in student residences.
Live guided recreation of students and staff is not performed.
Libraries can rent-out books in a contactless fashion following prior agreements and arrangements.
BODIES OF UNIVERSITY AND MEMBERS AND ELECTIONS
University bodies and bodies of university members can operate at the university premises, under the condition that the maximum number of people per room (10) is not exceeded and that the interpersonal distance is observed among all participants. Elections in university bodies and bodies of university members can be implemented under the same conditions. The organiser of elections prepares a safety plan with defined measures to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 disease and sends it to the rector for approval. The rector issues a decision allowing the implementation of live elections.
ORGANISATION OF PUBLIC EVENTS
All events, extracurricular activities, lifelong learning and other contact activities, which cannot be performed on-line, are postponed.
The Rectorate prepares general guidelines for working, pedagogical processes and knowledge assessment, while university members prepare individual protocols, taking into account specifics of their premises. All students and staff have to be familiar with the guidelines, before they enter the university premises. All National Institute of Public Health guidelines regarding the COVID-19 disease have to be observed.
We appeal to all students and staff to take consistent care of hand hygiene and cough and to follow general hygiene measures to prevent the spread of disease,
We appeal to all students and employees to follow the verified and official information, especially the NIJZ and WHO.
We appeal to all students and staff to prevent discrimination and respect for fellow human beings.
