During the press conference of 14 September, relaxation of the corona measures was announced again. These relaxations will take effect on 25 September. What does this mean for studying at Saxion?
Face mask obligation
It is no longer mandatory to wear a face mask when you move through the communal areas of the building.
You will no longer be required to follow certain walking routes in the building. These will therefore be abolished.
Maximum lecture hall capacity
The maximum number of 75 persons in a lecture hall has been dropped. We are looking at how to deal with this and will make a decision about this shortly. We will not adjust the schedules of term 1 to this.
Basic hygiene rules
Continue to follow the basic rules to prevent the spread of COVID-19. People can still infect each other. Even after vaccination. Continue to wash your hands and cough and sneeze into your elbow.
Keep testing yourself
We ask you to continue self-testing for COVID-19 before coming to Saxion. The cabinet advises to do this twice a week. By doing a self-test you help us keep everyone safe in our Saxion-buildings. That’s why we think it’s important that you can easily access COVID-19 self-tests. The use of self-tests is voluntary. If you have any symptoms that resemble those of COVID-19, stay at home and make an appointment with the GGD (Municipal Health Services) for a test. Self-testing does not replace a GGD test.
Vaccinations are helping to make sure universities are safe spaces. That’s why we encourage you to get vaccinated if you haven’t already. You can also get vaccinated without an appointment. If you prefer to make an appointment, you can do so via www.planjeprik.nl or by calling the GGD (Municipal Health Services).
