As is well known, the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic is a public health emergency of international concern. The most common symptoms of Covid-19 infection are fever, fatigue and a dry cough. Some patients may experience muscle aches and pains, nasal congestion, a runny nose, sore throat or diarrhoea. These symptoms are generally mild and begin gradually. In more severe cases, the infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, renal failure and even death (Ministry of Health).
Following the outbreak of the health emergency from Covid-19, MIP acted promptly, immediately complying with the provisions issued by the competent authorities at regional and national level and drawing up a specific corporate anti-contagion protocol, in application of the “Common regulatory protocol between the Government and the Social Partners on the measures to combat and contain the spread of the Covid-19 virus in the workplace” of 26/04/2020, and of the specific ordinances of the Lombardy Region.
With reference to its activities, MIP has managed to ensure the continuity of its educational services during the emergency period through live remote teaching sessions.
In compliance with the provisions of the 2020-2021 School Plan of 26/06/20, from September 2020 in-person teaching activities can resume, in compliance with the provisions of the technical document “hypothesis for the remodelling of the containment measures in the school sector and the modalities for resuming teaching activities for the next school year”, elaborated by the Technical Scientific Committee (CTS) on 28/05/2020. These provisions, described below, have been incorporated and adopted by MIP.
Every student/lecturer who enters MIP’s premises is obliged to comply scrupulously with the following provisions, in order to reduce the transmission of the virus and the risk of infection, for the well-being of the whole community.
This document is based on the current status of the legislation, which may change in the following months, due to the continuing health emergency and its severity. Official sources such as the World Health Organization, the Ministry of Health and the regional websites will therefore be consulted periodically in order for us to remain constantly updated on the subject and to comply with the recommendations as they are published.
It will be the responsibility of MIP to communicate in good time any significant legislative changes, enacted at regional/national level, that involve a modification to the prevention and protection measures adopted.
