COVID-19 Guidelines

– Persons who test positive in a molecular or antigenic diagnostic test for SARS-CoV-2 are subjected to the measure of isolation, which may be terminated:

A) 5 days after the first positive test or the onset of symptoms, regardless of whether an antigenic or molecular test has been performed, for cases that have always been asymptomatic and for those who have not been symptomatic for at least 2 days. For cases that have always been asymptomatic, isolation may end even earlier than 5 days if an antigenic or molecular test performed at a health facility/pharmacy proves negative.

B) After 5 days, but always necessarily following an antigenic or molecular test with a negative result, for cases in immunocompromised individuals.

C) After a minimum period of 5 days from the first positive test, if asymptomatic for at least 2 days and negative to an antigenic or molecular test, for citizens who entered Italy from the People’s Republic of China in the 7 days preceding the first positive test.

At the end of isolation, the use of FFP2-type respiratory protective equipment is mandatory until ten days after the onset of symptoms or the first positive test (in the case of asymptomatics), and it is recommended to avoid high-risk persons and/or crowded environments. These precautions may be discontinued in the event of a negative antigenic or molecular test.
Close contacts of positive cases should apply the self-monitoring regime, during which FFP2 respiratory protective equipment must be worn indoors or in crowded areas until the fifth day following the date of the last close contact. If symptoms suggestive of possible Sars-Cov-2 infection occur during the self-monitoring period, immediate antigenic or molecular testing is recommended.

-Guarantee hand hygiene by keeping the sanitising gel dispensers active;
-Guarantee the level of cleanliness of the rooms dedicated to teaching activities and laboratories;
-Assure frequent air exchange;
-Provide FFP2 type masks to fragile subjects (students, teachers, staff), for all other subjects no masks are required;
-Sanitise premises frequented by contaminated subjects according to ISS COVID-19 report no. 12/2021.

No admission to RUFA is possible if at least one of the following three conditions occurs:

-symptomatology compatible with covid-19 (acute respiratory symptoms, cough, cold, vomiting, diarrhoea, loss of taste, loss of smell, intense headache);
-body temperature above 37.5°c;
-diagnostic test for sars-cov-2 positive.

One can enter RUFA upon the occurrence of one of the following conditions:
-in the presence of minor respiratory symptoms, in good general condition and without fever;
-in the presence of frequent and habitual colds while wearing FFP2;
-in the presence of mild, non-habitual symptoms, in the absence of fever, while wearing FFP2.

In order to prevent possible outbreaks of infection, the College’s offices have organised themselves to enable adequate “contact tracing” in accordance with the ISS indications.
RUFA has appointed Dr. Ernesto Pastore ( as “COVID Contact Person” who will have the task of interacting with the prevention department for case management.
The meeting room in via Benaco 2 and the meeting room in via degli Ausoni 7 have been determined as the dedicated room for patient isolation while waiting for emergency vehicles.
Staff members, students or lecturers who show symptoms indicative of Sars-CoV-2 infection in the course of their work and/or teaching activities at the Academy will be accommodated in the dedicated room or isolation area, which has been set up for this purpose. The person concerned will go to his/her home and follow the instructions of the GP/PLS, duly informed.

Subjects who test positive in the diagnostic test for SARS-CoV-2 are subjected to the isolation measure. A negative test result (molecular or antigenic) at the end of the isolation measure is required for re-entry into RUFA.

-It is permissible for teachers and students who are Covid-19 positive, upon presentation of appropriate medical certification of positivity, to sit examinations and dissertations remotely, by notifying the management and secretariat in good time.

The so-called fragile subjects who, due to the SARS-CoV-2 virus, are more exposed to the risk of developing adverse symptoms are obliged to notify the Institution of this condition, also specifying any protective measures to be activated during their presence in the classroom.
Following the report received, the School Institution assesses the specific situation, identifying the appropriate precautionary measures to be applied in order to guarantee the subject’s participation in presence and under safe conditions.

The Ministry of Health calls on institutions to support the vaccination campaign in schools and universities. From the following link of the Ministry of Health is possible to download communication materials useful for the promotion of the vaccination campaign.
