Getting out of the Covid-19 health emergency? Still some patience will be needed… This is particularly true for college students. Something is changing, however, but with great caution.
Thinking about attending courses at university is still completely “out”. Nevertheless, signs are overall positive and everything suggests that we are moving towards a gradual relaxation of many measures.
Teachings are continuing to take place completely online.
Nevertheless something is moving. This is what concerns research activities and the use of common spaces such as libraries. This is what concerns research activities and the use of common spaces such as libraries. In all these areas a temporary “observation period” of a few days, starting Monday, May 4, has been established. On one hand this period will be used to identify what it takes to reopen with greater ease. At the same time this experience will demonstrate how people and organizations are ready to get back to a “new normal”.
Libraries, in particular, will reopen for loan and consultation by appointment starting from May 18, 2020. It seems confirmed that in universities exams, research and laboratory activities will be allowed, provided that rules on social distancing are respected.
Are we moving towards normality? The next two weeks will be a test to understand how to carry out exams in the next sessions.
