UNIGE policies

The University of Geneva maintains constant contact with the Cantonal Health authorities and applies the recommendations of the cantonal doctor, derived from those of the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH), the only health authorities to which it refers.

UNIGE is carefully monitoring this quickly-changing situation. The University may adapt its policies at any time in response to new recommendations. Any change will be immediately reflected on this page. Should a major change take place, members of the University community will be informed by e-mail.

As an academic institution, we have a particular responsibility in our management of this crisis and the reactions it generates. In a serene and exemplary fashion, we must broadly disseminate scientifically valid information, ensure that the voices of our researchers are heard, and soothe excessive fears through objective and factual information. Demonstrate serenity and exemplarity.
