Coronavirus (COVID-19): information and indications for the whole university community from UIC Barcelona
All teaching activities will be carried out online throughout May
As announced officially by the Spanish Governance, prorroga the decree of state of alarm at all the country until the day 7 of June included, because of the risk of contagions for the coronavirus (COVID-19). This extension affects, logically, the university system of all the State and, therefore, also our university.
The rectors of all of the Catalan universities, including our own, met with the President of the Government of Catalonia, the Minister for Business and Knowledge and the Secretariat for Universities and Research. It has been decided that all teaching activities will be carried out online throughout April and May. This decision may change depending on how the pandemic develops and the measures that have to be taken to control it, which will be dictated by the authorities.
Through the university’s main channels, we will keep you updated about any new developments related to this issue, as well as any measures or recommendations to be taken or made in this situation. On our intranet, under Occupational Risks, you will be able to read an additional document with more information on coronavirus.
