Starting from April 4th,  lectures will be held in person.

Distance learning will be provided only for students positive for COVID19 and for other categories, which will be identified in accordance with the provisions of the legislation.

Further information will be available soon.

The state of emergency related to the pandemic SARS-COV-2 infection ends on March 31st. It started on January 31st, 2020 and was extended several times.

In accordance with the last measures adopted by the Italian government, from April 4th teaching activities will be exclusively in presence. Remote teaching can only be activated for students who must undergo the measure of home isolation for having contracted the viral infection. In any case, students must send the outcome of the swab test certifying the positivity to COVID-19 by e-mail to the Coordinator of the Degree Course.

Subsequent readmission to face-to-face teaching activities is subject the presentation to Coordinator of an antigenic or molecular test certifying the negativization to COVID 19.

For students and teachers who have had contact with a positive subject, however, it is not provided any particular restriction.

These people are allowed to continue to attend lectures and to carry out their activities as, according to current regulatory provisions, the so-called “contact quarantines” are not prescribed and this regardless of the vaccination status. In the absence of specific symptoms, it is only required the health self-surveillance and the obligation to wear FFP2 masks for a period of 10 days from the date of the last contact with a positive subject.

Students and teachers who have had contact with a positive subject have to carry out a rapid or molecular control antigen test at the first onset of symptoms and, if still symptomatic, on the fifth day following the date of the last contact.

Furthermore, all people at the University must use the respiratory protection devices and respect an interpersonal safety distance, and not to enter the facilities or remain in the classrooms if suffering from respiratory symptoms or, in any case, in the presence of body temperature above 37.5°.

Given the epidemiological trend of the disease and the increase in infections, the whole UniME community appeals to all of you for the general respect for the well-known rules of caution and common sense, recommending the adoption of appropriate protective measures to ensure respect for our health, in its dual individual and collective projection.
