Here I attach an extract of that document in what concerns protection measures: “5. Organizational, individual and structural protection measures.
a) Duty of self‐protection:
All members of the university community must take the necessary measures to prevent the generation of risks of spreading COVID‐19 infection, as well as their own exposure to these risks, with the adoption of individual and collective protection measures based on: • Mandatory use of a face mask without a valve.
• The maintenance of the minimum interpersonal distance is 1.5 meters, except in places where teaching activities are carried out. The capacity in the spaces where teaching activities are not carried out is given by the equivalent of a security space of 2.5 m2 per person, unless a more restrictive value is applied due to the type of activity. .
• Frequent hand hygiene with soap and water or ice or hydroalcoholic solution.
• The natural or mechanical ventilation of the spaces for as long as possible
• Hygiene of respiratory symptoms (avoid coughing directly into the air, cover your mouth with the inside of your forearm, and avoid touching your face, nose, and eyes).
• The use of personal protective equipment depending on the activity (gloves, safety glasses, etc.).
• The prioritization of meetings in electronic format.
• The avoidance of crowds by adapting entry and exit times, and preferably by appointment. • The preference for outdoor spaces for activities.
• Self‐cleaning of shared surfaces and equipment occupied and / or used.
b) Mandatory use of a mask.
o The use of a mask is mandatory in all enclosed spaces and for as long as they are there, for all people who access the buildings and facilities of the UB, regardless of the maintenance of the interpersonal physical distance of security.
o The use of the mask is mandatory in the work environment when the work space is for public use or open to the public, shared with other workers, or when there are trips inside the work center.
o In the case of workspaces closed to the public, for individual use, and properly ventilated, once the worker is doing tasks that do not involve mobility, the use of a mask will not be mandatory.
o People who have any type of illness or respiratory difficulty that is incompatible with the use of the mask and justify it with a medical certificate are not obliged to use it.
o It is also not required in the case of outdoor sports, nor in the cases established by the competent authorities.
o In the event of non‐compliance with the obligation to wear the mask correctly, the protocol provided for in the annex to File J will be applied.”
