General Corona regulations for activities in UT buildings

The following codes of conduct apply to all forms of presence in UT buildings during the restrictive measures in the context of COVID-19 (coronavirus). These are based on the general guidelines of RIVM (NHS), the protocol of the VSNU and the general UT guidelines.

  1. You may enter the campus or a UT building, provided you have been free from any symptoms of the coronavirus disease. These symptoms are:
    1. Cold-like symptoms (such as a runny nose, sneezing and/or a sore throat)
    2. Coughing
    3. Shortness of breath or pneumonia
    4. An elevated temperature (up to 38 degrees)
    5. A fever (above 38 degrees)
    6. A sudden loss of smell or taste (without a blocked nose)

      If you have any of these symptoms, make an appointment to get tested.
  2. Check the tool if you have come into contact with someone who has been infected: www.utwente.nl/can-i-come-to-campus.
  3. Wash your hands regularly (min. 6x per day) for 20 seconds with soap and water or use an anti-bacterial hand gel that contains at least 70% alcohol (only for clean hands) Clean your hands at least whenever you enter a UT building, after sneezing or blowing your nose, before preparing/eating food, after using the toilet, after traveling with public transport and after cleaning activities.
  4. Cough and sneeze into the inside of your elbow.
  5. If you cough/sneeze, use a paper tissue, then throw it in a dustbin and wash your hands.
  6. Do not shake hands.
  7. Wear a face mask as of Monday, 30 August 2021 in all buildings on campus when moving around (with the exception of U Parkhotel, High Tech Factory and The Gallery), and also within the building of the ITC faculty.
  8. Do not touch your face or touch it as little as possible.
  9. Wherever possible, use your own work materials (eg keyboard, mouse, pen and (head) phones) and use the cleaning products offered to keep them sanitised
  10. If possible, close the toilet lid after using the toilet and before flushing.
  11. In general traffic areas (e.g. halls, corridors, stairwells) keep to the right and look to your right when passing. 
  12. There is a maximum group size of 75 people in a room and 75 students (excluding teachers and supervisors) in a classroom provided that the ventilation capacity allows this. It is a joint responsibility to ensure maximum group sizes will not be exceeded.

For organising parties:

  1. Appoint a corona official who oversees compliance with the regulations and give them the authority to send individuals home, if they fail to comply with the regulations.
  2. Inform everyone present about the duties and authorities of the corona official.
  3. Make sure that everyone present knows the regulations (demonstrably) and conforms to them.
  4. Make sure there is good ventilation in your building (co-ordinate this with the Facility Team Leader of CFM).
