Guidelines for Academic and Non- Academic Activities at FEP

Very important information on the operating conditions and rules of behaviour to be adopted at the School


Wearing a mask is mandatory

  • The use of a mask is mandatory for the entire academic community and visitors.
  • In addition, the already known preventive measures should always be considered: physical distance of 2 meters, hygiene measures and respiratory etiquette.

Enclosed spaces / infrastructure

  • The capacity of the various spaces will be reduced to ensure the recommended physical distance.
  • The time of simultaneous presence of people in enclosed space shall be minimized.
  • FEP has isolation areas, duly signposted, to which members of the academic community who develop symptoms suggestive of respiratory infection (cough and/or fever and/or respiratory difficulty), even if slight, should be directed.

Dining areas

  • The use of dining rooms and “microwave” should be done with the minimum possible time of stay, ensuring a distance of at least 1 meter between people, preferably 2.

Sanitization of premises and equipment

  • There is a cleaning plan for facilities and equipment, respecting the guidelines of the General Health Directorate regarding methodology, materials, products and cleaning frequency.


  • The Portuguese application of COVID-19, developed by a consortium coordinated by INESC TEC, allows, in a simple, safe and private way, each user to be informed about risk exposures to the disease through the monitoring of recent contacts. More information available here.
