The University will not oblige students to present a negative PCR test at the beginning of the academic year and does not plan to carry out random testing. Those coming from other countries should consult and comply with the provisions in force at that time by the health authorities. (https://www.spth.gob.es/)

This is not currently planned, given the existing prevalence of the virus.

At the beginning of this academic year, there are few changes with respect to the measures implemented in 20-21 academic year.

 

-There will be no initial mass screening.

- Students will be requested to provide information on their current vaccination status (vaccinated, have not received the second vaccine dose or not vaccinated) or if they caught Covid 19 within the last 180 days.

-Students who have not been vaccinated or are only partially vaccinated or have not caught Covid 19 must present a certificate of diagnosis which is a negative PCR test, taken up to 72 hours before arriving at the University. Those who do not have this certificate must take a free PCR test at the University.

-The following measures will be maintained: Capacity, hygiene rules and mandatory wearing of facemasks in all university buildings.  Professors may teach without masks as long as they maintain a minimum of 2.5 meters distance in the classrooms.

-The Navarre Health Service will offer vaccination on the Pamplona campus to students who would like to receive the vaccine or have not completed their vaccine protocol.

The University updates its guidelines flexibly, according to the circumstances at any given time. The Regional Government of Navarre has rescinded the order regarding capacity restrictions as of October 1.

In view of the new regulations:

a) Classrooms, workshops, seminar rooms, laboratories, may be occupied up to 100% capacity.

b) The same criteria of full occupancy and uniform distribution wherever possible hold for other public spaces such as libraries, oratories, assembly halls, cafeterias and meeting points.

c) However, at the request of the national labor authorities, the current capacity restrictions remain in force in shared workplaces (not teaching spaces), where it is not possible to observe social distancing, such as administrative offices of some centers and services, and other similar shared spaces.

Facemasks remain mandatory indoors, and outdoors when the 1.5 meter interpersonal distance cannot be guaranteed.  When the established social distance cannot be guaranteed indoors, a FPP2 facemask is recommended.

 

In addition, professors may teach without masks as long as they maintain a minimum 2 meter distance.  Classrooms that allow for this possibility will be clearly signposted.

Yes, the University will continue to provide this service, in the same conditions as this academic year. Among other reasons, because the principle that anyone with symptoms should not come to the University will remain in force. It is very important to keep this idea in mind: if you have any symptoms, don't come to campus.  Staff and students can contact Covid area at atencioncovid@unav.es or 679 358 074.

Yes, special cleaning measures will continue to be in place to ensure maximum hygiene. Hand sanitizers will also be available, as proper hand hygiene is still recommended.

Yes, the criteria implemented this past academic year will still apply.

There will be more face-to-face teaching. In terms of schedules and number of classes, normality will be restored to a large extent.

Exemptions from class attendance are not foreseen at this stage. However, in the event of contagion and the need for confinement, classes will be broadcast, as was done during the 20-21 academic year. This will remain the case as long as there is a risk of contagion.
