The COVID-19 Infection Prevention Task Force has introduced new rules for students, residing at HSE dorms. Now, the students who need to take their belongings from the form can do so from 9 am to 5 pm. The university is also ready to help the students who need to go to work, asking their employers to extend their home office work mode.
Viktor Emelyanov, Director for Dormitory, Guesthouse and Recreation Centre Management, explains the new policies in more detail.
Yes, it is. The epidemiological situation is still far from perfect in some regions, so the university’s COVID-19 prevention task force decided to continue the policy of isolation at Voronovo for students who leave the dorms for longer than 48 hours.
In order to check in the dorm after a long (over 48 h) leave, the student can submit a negative result of COVID-19 test (SARS-CoV-2, PCR) within two days after they get the result. The tests should be done in Moscow or Moscow region.
If the certificate is submitted in time, the student can move into the dorm without isolation at Voronovo Centre.
Students can also avoid isolation at Voronovo is they provide a positive test for IgG antibodies.
Following the task force directive, students who check out of the dorms can visit them once from 9 am to 5 pm. They will be banned from visiting other HSE dorms during this time.
Following the task force directive, the university will help the students who are isolated at Voronovo Centre. First Vice Rector Alexander Shamrin and Vice Rector Vladimir Samoylenko are ready to send the appropriate letters to employers and negotiate with them the opportunity to extend the home office mode for the time the student is accommodated at Voronovo.
