Information on the current situation of COVID-19

Following the WHO's declaring coronavirus (COVID-19) an epidemic, the UOC has taken preventative measures. A monitoring group has been set up to continually assess the situation. Where necessary, this group will propose specific measures, in accordance with the instructions from the health authorities, to strengthen the preventative safety protocols.

The prevention and containment measures already communicated to staff are still applicable, in accordance with the guidelines given by health authorities seeking to avoid the spreading of the virus.

In light of unfolding events and the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), a crisis committee has been created to monitor the situation and decide, where necessary, what measures the University should take in the coming days.
