Procedures in case of symptoms or diagnosis of COVID-19 


The measure announced by the Codeco of 17 November 2021 concerning telework makes it compulsory from 22 November 2021, unless the nature of the function or the continuity of the activities do not allow it.

However, one day of presence per week is foreseen.

It is clear that the continuity of face-to-face teaching and research activities does not allow for the widespread use of distance work in universities. As a reminder, these are expressly included in the list of "sectors necessary for the protection of vital needs and the needs of the population" whose continuity of activity must be ensured.

Therefore, on-site work can and must be maintained for all tasks necessary for face-to-face teaching, including the opening of libraries and study rooms, as well as everything related to security, reception, maintenance and surveillance of buildings. The same applies to any research or other activity that requires access to equipment not available at home or to documents whose volume, or security or confidentiality requirements, do not allow access outside our premises.

In concrete terms, it is up to the hierarchical line of each entity to organise telework in the best possible way, taking into account the specificities and the necessary continuity of activities.

Wearing a mask is mandatory in all public areas of our buildings and when the safety distance of 1.5 m cannot be respected. Videoconferencing should be used whenever possible. 

Individual protective equipment

  • Wearing a mask is mandatory in all of our indoor areas that are accessible to the public: corridors, auditoriums, libraries, etc. In other places such as offices, it is mandatory when the distance of 1.50 m cannot be respected.
  • The delivery of 2 reusable masks for each ULiège agent was completed in May 2020. As fabric masks have also been supplied by the Federal and the Municipalities, a new supply is not currently on the agenda. An exception exists however for newcomers who can be equipped at the SUPHT Store.
  • Wearing a cloth mask is the preferred equipment. However, for certain specific needs, disposable masks can be provided by the SUPHT on duly justified request. These include wearing the mask during dirty tasks, welcoming the public who would not have their mask on, etc.
  • We draw your attention in particular to the need to use exclusively cotton masks in laboratories where there is a risk of inflammation.
  • People for whom wearing a mask is a medical contraindication can replace it with a face shield. This equipment is available at the SUPHT Store.
