Pursuing the safety policy for the management of Phase 3 and continuing in managing safety issues but also those related to work/life balance, it is necessary to provide the entire SISSA community with indications for possible cases related to health situations also connected to family life.
You have to stay at home and not go to SISSA in case of fever equal to or higher than 37.5° and/or presence of other flu symptoms (sore throat, cough, breathing difficulties) or other symptoms attributable to COVID-19 (loss of smell and taste, diarrhea, diffuse joint and muscle pain or other symptoms). In this case you have to contact General Practictioner or other regional health systems.
This behavior must also be adopted in case of contacts with family members, cohabiting partners or friends showing the symptoms described above. Access to SISSA must be avoided until the clinical situation of the family member/friends is diagnosed. Smart working mode must also be adopted.
You have to stay at home and not go to SISSA in case of cold symptoms (stuffy nose, sneezing, sore throat, joint or muscle pain, etc.), without fever or with slight fever (less than 37.5 °)In this case you have to contact the General Practitioner immediately and scrupulously follow his instructions. It is still strongly recommended to stay at home smart working, even if the doctor does not deem or certify a specific state of illness, until clinical improvement or for 5-7 days.
In the case of similar symptoms of cohabiting family members or friends, it is advisable to follow the heath care practitioner’s instructions and to evaluate, with care and responsibility, to avoid access to SISSA, always preferring smart working with a precautionary approach to protect the SISSA community.
