Safety Measures Practicals

The following safety measures apply:

1. Study Programmes in Health Science:

2. For all other study programmes the number of on-campus contact hours will be limited by focusing on essential competencies in combination with interactive online teaching. The number, frequency and duration of practicals must be limited wherever possible.

  • Mouth caps are no alternative for physical distancing. 
  • Students are not allowed to physically work together with the same object, on the same experiment, test set-up, … . They are assigned (sub)tasks which they can perform by themselves. Only if sharing specific equipment is crucial to attaining essential competencies a rotation system can be set up. In such cases, the equipment is disinfected between users and after every use.
  • Practicals must not exceed a maximum duration of 4 hours (this equals the max. continuous wear time of a mouth cap).
