Urgent notice of the rector>>

6th March 2020

The new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 causes a disease known as the COVID-19 disease. The COVID-19 disease is similar to other respiratory infections, such as flu. Symptoms of the disease include feeling unwell, fatigue, muscle aches, a temperature of 38°C or higher, coughing, and breathing difficulties in more severe cases. Data shows that up to 80% of cases are mild and patients recover without complications. 

How to prevent coronavirus infection?

As with other respiratory infections, the following preventive measures are recommended to prevent infection with the new coronavirus SARS-CoV-2:

  • Avoid physical contact with people showing signs of an infectious disease; maintain a distance of at least 1.5 metres.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • If you fall ill, stay at home.
  • Observe the rules of respiratory and cough hygiene.
  • Wash your hands regularly with soap and water.
  • If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitiser. The hand sanitiser should contain at least 60% ethanol. Hand sanitisers are for external use only. Household cleaning products and disinfectants should not be used to clean or disinfect the skin.
  • Given the current epidemiological situation, the general use of protective masks is not necessary.
  • During periods of increased respiratory infection, avoid closed spaces where large numbers of people are present. Ensure that closed spaces are regularly ventilated.

What should I do if I have been in an area (at home or abroad) where coronavirus has been confirmed?

 

1. UL Employees

No special measures (such as self-isolation) are required for employees with no signs of illness. They may work normally with other staff members. Nonetheless, it is recommended that they follow and apply preventive measures with particular care and closely monitor any changes in their health status.

If they become ill with symptoms of acute respiratory infection (temperature of 38°C or higher, coughing, breathing difficulties) and have returned from areas where coronavirus is confirmed, or have been in contact with coronavirus patients, they must stay at home or move into a separate area and follow preventive measures (a minimum distance of 1.5 metres from others, hand hygiene, respiratory and cough hygiene, surface disinfection, room ventilation). They should consult the health service by phone (their personal doctor or the off-duty medical service) to receive instructions on what to do next.

Employees must inform their supervisor about their symptoms and absence, which will be recorded accordingly.

Exceptions are employees who work directly with patients or people who are more likely to have a serious course of illness (e.g., residents at special institutions, retirement homes, etc.), as per the decision of the UL Coordination Group for Coronavirus Measures. We ask these employees to self-isolate. If this applies to you and if you have travelled, within the last 14 days, to areas where coronavirus has been confirmed, or have been in contact with people from these areas, or think you might be infected with coronavirus, you should observe the following rules:

  • do not teach any classes, or perform other activities in a clinical setting, or with any of the risk groups for the next 14 days, regardless of your health condition;
  • notify your supervisor and the HR Department, who will record your absence accordingly;
  • if you develop any signs of coronavirus infection (fever, coughing, breathing difficulties) during this period, inform the health service by phone or email (your personal doctor or the off-duty medical service); in this case you must also stay away from your work environment;
  • do not go to a medical centre or hospital unannounced, so as not to infect others;
  • if you do not become ill during the 14-day period, you can return to teaching and other activities in the clinical setting;
  • in addition to these instructions concerning work in a clinical setting, you should also follow any other instructions from institutions where you are involved in the work process.

2. UL Students

No special measures (such as self-isolation) are required for students with no signs of illness. They may carry on with their study activities. Nonetheless, it is recommended that they follow and apply preventive measures with particular care and closely monitor any changes in their health status.

If they become ill with symptoms of acute respiratory infection (temperature of 38°C or higher, coughing, breathing difficulties) and have been in an area where coronavirus is confirmed, or have been in contact with coronavirus patients, they must stay at home or move into a separate area and follow preventive measures (a minimum distance of 1.5 metres from others, hand hygiene, respiratory and cough hygiene, surface disinfection, room ventilation).

They should consult the health service by phone (their personal doctor or the off-duty medical service) to receive instructions on what to do next. Students from abroad should contact the Student Health Center at Aškerčeva cesta 4, Ljubljana. Students must inform their course coordinator about their symptoms and absence, which will be recorded accordingly. The course coordinator will determine the mode of course replacement.

Exceptions are students who work directly with patients or people who are more likely to have a serious course of illness (e.g., residents at special institutions, retirement homes, etc.), as per the decision of the UL Coordination Group for Coronavirus Measures. If this applies to you and if you have travelled, within the last 14 days, to areas where coronavirus has been confirmed, or have been in contact with people from these areas, or suspect you might be infected with coronavirus, we ask you to self-isolate. You should observe the following rules and restrictions:

  • do not participate in any classes, or perform other activities in a clinical setting, or with any of the risk groups for the next 14 days, regardless of your health condition;
  • inform your course coordinator and the Student Office about your situation, which will be recorded accordingly; Erasmus+ students should inform their UL International Office;
  • the course coordinator will determine the mode of course replacement;
  • if you do not become ill during the 14-day period, you can participate in study activities without restrictions;
  • if you develop any symptoms and signs of coronavirus infection during this period, inform the health service by phone or email (your personal doctor or the off-duty medical service; students from abroad should contact the Student Health Center at Aškerčeva cesta 4, Ljubljana); in this case you must also stay away from the Faculty and follow all preventive measures;
  • do not go to a medical centre or hospital unannounced, so as not to infect others.

We request that students strictly follow the guidelines and any other restrictions issued by UKC Ljubljana and other healthcare institutions during their study activities at these institutions.

Are there any changes regarding the study process?

Since the current epidemiological situation does not necessitate special measures, other than those outlined above, the University of Ljubljana has not adopted any restrictions or changes to its study process and activities. Appropriate measures will be taken if the epidemiological situation so requires, and following official recommendations by government bodies (Ministry of Health, National Institute of Public Health, and Government of the Republic of Slovenia).
