UPDATE # coronavirus ❗️ At the press conference on 13 October, the government announced additional measures to combat the coronavirus pandemic🦠 . These will apply for at least the coming four weeks. Below, you can read more about how these measures will impact the University of Amsterdam (UvA). 🔹 In the short term, the government intends to make wearing face masks a legal requirement. At the UvA, this means that from now on, everyone will be wearing a face mask😷 in all indoor area... s (corridors, lifts, halls, etc.) including the library until arriving at their destination. Once in a lecture room or office, face masks may be removed. If you prefer to continue wearing one, feel free to do so. In some spaces (e.g. laboratories)🥼 special guidelines apply, which take precedence over general UvA guidelines. 🔹 Teaching activities at universities are exempt to the rule that gatherings must be in groups of 30 and under🧑‍🏫 . Examinations can also continue without any group size limitations, although of course all the necessary precautionary measures will be taken. Study spaces👩‍💻 will also remain available for use. Students will be informed when any scheduled activities are cancelled. 🔹 Teaching-related activities such as degree certificate and diploma award ceremonies🎓 🥳 may continue, with a maximum of 30 people in attendance. In order to restrict travel as much as possible, considering any alternatives first, such as online options, is recommended. Unfortunately, a reception after the award ceremony is currently out of the question. 🔹 At an earlier point, events that were not directly related to education and research had already been postponed🔜 . This will now also apply to events that are indeed related to education and research, such as small-scale symposia. Study association activities must also be cancelled, including those of an educational nature. Here too, the four-week period applies. In light of the importance of the study association activities for education📚 , the related restrictions will be lifted as soon as possible✅ . ..view more
