COVID-19 Virus Control Measures Protocol

In the context of the gradual return to on-campus study, we request all students and staff to adhere to the precautionary measures imposed to prevent the spread of the virus.

 

• Mandatory requirements when entering the campus buildings:

  1. Make sure that your EHTERAZ application code is green.
  2. In the event of not receiving or completing the vaccine doses, the result of a rapid weekly test (negative result) must be presented.
  3. Students, those who recovered from the disease or those who are exempt from taking the vaccine with an official medical certificate are exempted from the weekly test.
  4. Temperature check at all entrances of campus buildings.
  5. Ensure that mask is worn covering the nose and mouth.

 

• Instructions that must be adhered to while on campus:

  1. Wearing masks correctly while on campus, especially in classrooms, laboratories, and indoor places.
  2. Ensure frequent and correct handwashing with soap and water, and frequent use of sanitizers.
  3. Adhere to social distancing in classrooms, laboratories, public and waiting areas. Avoid sitting closely or shaking hands.
  4. It is necessary to inform the professor, lecturer or direct supervisor in case of symptoms such as high temperature or the appearance of any symptoms such as cough, breathing difficulty, and headache. Accordingly, the Health and Safety Section will follow the necessary measures.

 

• Instructions to be followed by students and staff (infected) with COVID-19 with positive or reactive test results:

The infected person must do the following:

  1. Inform the Health and Safety Section and send a copy of the test result and a copy of the quarantine undertaking.
  2. The infected person is obliged to complete the quarantine for a period of 14 days or as determined by the health authorities and to fully comply with the instructions issued by the Ministry of Public Health (MOPH)
  3. After the specified quarantine period is completed, the infected student or staff returns to study or work as normal.
  4. Only the infected person with a reactive result has to perform a second test six (6) days after the first one.

 

• Instructions for students and staff with close contacts to an infected with the COVID-19 virus

In the case that student or staff has been in close contact with an infected person for 15 minutes or more at an unsafe distance:

  1. The contact (who did not receive or complete the two doses of the vaccine) must stay at home, informing the Health and Safety Section, and wait for instructions to perform the necessary test while adhering to the home quarantine procedures until the date of the test. After the test, the home quarantine undertaking is signed for 7-14 days.
  2. The contact (who received the two doses of the vaccine) must stay at home, inform the Health and Safety Section, and wait for instructions to perform the necessary test, while adhering to home quarantine procedures until the date of the test. After conducting the test, the person must remain home until the test results are out.
  3. In case the result is negative for the contact (who did not receive or complete the two doses of the vaccine), the person must complete the specified quarantine period, after which the student or staff returns to study or work normally.
  4. In case the result is negative for the contact (who received two doses of the vaccine), the person does not have to be quarantined, and the student or staff returns to study or workplace normally.
  5. In case the result appears positive, the contacts follow the same instructions mentioned above for the infected category.

 

  • Measures to follow during quarantine
  1. Adhere to all preventive measures, such as cleaning hands with soap and sanitizers, and wearing a mask correctly.
  2. Use of single-use utensils for eating and drinking.
  3. Disinfect all exposed surfaces and tools that are touched on a daily basis with disinfectants approved by the Ministry of Public Health (MOPH), while making sure to wear gloves and a mask during cleaning and hygienically dispose of the used tools, place them in an airtight bag, and transfer them to waste container.
