Covid-19: epidemic rebound / situation update and action to be followed

Tue, 07/12/2021

News

The number of Covid-19 positives cases is rising again very quickly in France — and thus inside ENS de Lyon. In view of the epidemic rebound, new measures are being (re)implemented.

Booster vaccination campaign

The booster vaccination is open to all adults since November 27, 2021.

This third dose of vaccine is the best response we can provide to the current epidemic situation.

How to be vaccinated

Sanitary measures

The respect of the sanitary measures is the first efficient protection coupled with vaccination. 

  • Wearing a mask inside the buildings of ENS de Lyon is mandatory.
  • It is recommended to ventilate offices at least for 5 minutes every hour.
  • Washing/disinfecting hands and shared equipment regularly is a must.

Measures at ENS de Lyon

  • Autotests are available to your disposal on the campus. They are useful to detect individuals without symptoms. A sample taken every week (the box is covering 5 week of test) increases the chances of detect the early begining of the Covid-19 infection.
  • There is a high risk of contamination during lunch and coffee breaks. Please seat staggered when sharing a meal and ventilate the room as much as possible.
  • Distanciation rules (2 meters away when the mask is off) is highly recommended. 

Measures in Crous restaurants  

  • From 6 December 2021, the Crous will once again offer take-away meals.
  • In the pursuit of an eco-responsible approach, for those who wish to benefit from this mode of catering, the Crous teams invite you to bring your own bags, cutlery, water bottles... in order to limit waste production.

If you've been identified as a contact case

  • Isolate 
  • Get tested for free 
  • Monitor your condition

The dates when you should be tested (antigenic tests in pharmacy and PCR tests in laboratory) and the isolation duration vary according of your individual situation.
