Recommendations to the academic community

In recent days, there has been a significant increase in the number of cases of SARS-CoV-2 infection in the U.Porto community.

In this context, in conjunction with the local health authorities and in order to minimize the negative impact on the normal functioning of the University, we urge you to adopt the recommended measures to prevent and mitigate the risk of contagion if you register symptoms suggestive of COVID-19.

These measures include school, work or social exclusion (refraining from travelling to the University), wearing a facial mask, carrying out a diagnostic test and isolate yourself for a period of 7 days in case of a positive result.

It is also recommended that people who have come into contact with positive cases, even when without symptoms suggestive of COVID-19, reduce social contacts, wear a mask when it is not possible to guarantee adequate physical distance and carry out symptom surveillance for a period of 14 days.
