Coronavirus measures at Unict

palazzo centraleFrom the 1st of September 2021 incoming students, teaching and admin staff are required to show COVID-19 “Green Pass” to access public venues such as the University’s buildings, in accordance with the Italian Legislative Decree 111, issued on the 6th of August, 2021.

We hereby inform incoming students, teaching staff and admin staff that from August 6th, 2021, a Digital Green Certificate so-called “Green Pass” will be compulsory to access some other venues and to take part in social activities such as indoor restaurants, bars, museums, exhibition and sporting venues, cultural sites, events, swimming pools, cinemas, gyms, concerts, fairs, conferences, amusement parks and the like. 

Certificates issued by the health authorities of the United States, United Kingdom including Great Britain, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Gibraltar, the Isle of Man, Channel Islands and the island of Cyprus, San Marino fall under the same rules of the European Union used to get the “Green Pass” so as to make the University a safe place for everyone along with the above-mentioned venues.

We strongly encourage all those who have not been vaccinated to do so in any of the vaccination hubs available in Catania.

The European Commission and the Italian government are looking to find a reasonable solution as far as those who do not possess the European Green Pass. Until then, they will not be allowed to access the University.

Students will be attending their first term classes online, based on the University of Catania policy to deliver first term lectures through a synchronous teaching ranging from face-to-face to online learning.
