Rules of Conduct on Campus

General Rules of Conduct on Campus

General rules of conduct on campus include:

  • When socializing, maintain a distance from others of at least 1 meter.
  • Avoid hugs and handshakes.
  • Avoid sharing bottles and glasses.
  • Limit movements on campus. Always wear a mask when with other people.
  • Keep your workstation empty and organized (desk, tables, furniture, etc.) so it can be properly cleaned and disinfected periodically. Each office is also equipped with cleaning supplies to clean the workstation throughout the day.
  • Use the paper seat covers available in the bathrooms.
  • Elevators should be used only if strictly necessary and alone (one person at a time).

Use of Supplied Masks

How to wear and remove masks:

  • Before putting on the mask, wash your hands with soap and water or with an alcoholic solution.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with the mask, making sure it is intact and that it adheres well to your face.
  • Avoid touching the mask while you are wearing it; if you do touch it, wash your hands.
  • The mask is disposable: if it becomes damp, replace it with a new mask and do not reuse it.
  • Remove the mask by grabbing the elastic band and without touching the front; place it in its packaging and immediately throw it in the appropriate containers.
  • Wash your hands.

In the Office

Movements around campus should be limited to the absolute minimum and in compliance with the indications provided. Access to offices with multiple workstations and desks spaced close together will be scheduled on shifts to limit crowding.

Personally track your daily movements:

  • Where you go and for how long.
  • Who you talked to.
  • Where you ate.

Face-to-face meetings are not permitted.
For frequent contact with colleagues, please use phone calls or virtual meetings through the Teams platform. When other action is required, participation in meetings must be minimized and interpersonal distancing and adequate cleaning/ventilation of the premises must be guaranteed.
Following the suspension of certain activities (in-class teaching, coffee bars, cafeterias, etc.), unnecessary and unused areas will remain closed.

Body Temperature Measurement

The body temperature of workers will be measured when entering buildings and throughout the day. If it is above 37.5°C, access to the workplace will not be allowed. If other symptoms are present (i.e. difficulty breathing, cough. etc.) in addition to a high temperature, people in this condition will be temporarily isolated, pending assessment by healthcare personnel.

What Should I Do If I Have Symptoms?

Anyone experiencing flulike symptoms or respiratory problems on campus should not go to the hospital emergency room, but must:

  • immediately call the number +39 02 5836 2121 to activate the emergency procedure;
  • inform their supervisor;
  • wear the surgical mask provided and move away from other people who may be present;
  • stay in their room with the door closed ensuring, where possible, adequate natural ventilation, pending the arrival of healthcare personnel, or go to the infirmary.

General Conduct

Wash your hands often

Hand washing and disinfection are the key to preventing infection. Wash your hands often and thoroughly with soap and water for at least 60 seconds.
Dispensers with 60% alcohol-based hand sanitizer are also available.

Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth with your hands

The virus is mainly transmitted through breathing but also through contact of the hands with the eyes, nose and mouth, so avoid touching your face when your hands have not been washed thoroughly.

Cover your mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing

If you cover your mouth with your hands you could contaminate objects or people you come into contact with. Cough into your elbow or a tissue, preferably disposable, then put on a mask and wash your hands.
