The task-force is composed by the following members:

The task-force was created to contribute to the compliance with the requirements coming from local and national authorities. Morover, as an employer, SISSA wants to foster the most effective balance between the safety and health needs of its community and the continuation of its activity. All this through coordinated and transparent information.

Due to the complexity of the situation, which is unprecedented for our School, for our country and even globally, we first of all ask for understanding and help.
