Mandatory Health directives

UPEC is preparing for the start of the new academic year and is setting up an organization capable of adapting to changing sanitary constraints.

Covid-19 - Mandatory Health Directives


UPEC makes use of all available resources to monitor the evolution of the epidemic within the university: isolation of positive cases, informing the staff and students involved. The University Health Service provides support to students who test positive and all those who feel a need for it.

In compliance with government measures, UPEC organized a large-scale vaccination campaign for its staff since last March, thus allowing over 650 people to receive a complete vaccination against Covid-19.


To allow for a smooth start of the new academic year, we encourage students and staff to come or return to campus fully vaccinated.

Several vaccination centers have been identified to help those who wish to have quick access to a vaccine under the best conditions.


UPEC has deployed 10,000 self-tests on all its campuses. Students and staff will be invited to self-test regularly in order to participate in the "TAP" (Test - Alert - Protect) strategy and to fight, all together, against the spread of Covid-19. Self-tests are distributed to staff by the administrative and department managers.

We invite students and staff who have had high-risk contact, have symptoms and / or have tested positive to:
• report to:  
• register on UPEC platform:
Staff can also reach UPEC doctors and nurses at

We would like to remind you that the most effective way to fight the COVID-19 epidemic is through vaccination.

General Sanitary Directives

picto masque Wearing a mask is mandatory for everyone throughout the university both outside and inside (lecture halls, classrooms, hallways, offices, restrooms, etc.).

Students must bring their own masks. Special attention will be given to the most disadvantaged students.
> Check the poster "How to use your mask" (in French)

To protect yourself and others, it is necessary to apply preventive gestures and physical distancing measures within the university. The directives reminder here below is posted in the buildings on all university campuses :

gestes barrières covid 19

- Wash your hands often with soap and water, or if not possible, with a hydroalcoholic gel
- Wash your hands before and after handling your mask
- Do not touch your eyes, nose, or mouth
- Cough and sneeze into a disposable tissue (to be thrown away immediately) or into your elbow
- Respect physical distancing measures. The distance between two people is increased to at least two meters when a mask cannot be worn, i.e., within seated food courts for students and whenever people are eating, drinking or smoking. In other cases, wearing a mask has to be combined with maintaining a physical distance of at least one meter between people
- Greet without shaking hands and avoid hugs
- Respect the marked traffic routes
- Avoid gatherings
- Throw your single-use mask and tissues in a trash can with a garbage bag
