COVID19 - Protocols and guidelines

The University has adopted the operating procedures for verifying COVID 19 Green Certificates of university staff members and students under the provisions of Law Decree no.111 of August 6, 2021, which may be subject to further governmental provisions.

Operating procedures verifying the COVID-19 Green Certifications of staff members who carry out their services at the university are as follows:

  1. As of September 1, 2021, all staff members carrying out services within a University structure are required to complete the online form Self-Certification to Access University Buildings (Dichiarazione di accesso alle strutture universitarie)” available at the following link: https://accessostrutture.unipd.it. 
    The Self-Certification form requires, among other details, information related to the possession of a valid COVID-19 Green Certification or a Certificate of Medical Exemption for COVID-19 Immunization issued by the provisions contained in the August 4, 2021 circular of the Italian Ministry of Health.
    Personnel who do not have a SSO identifier needed to enter the university’s intranet system can download the form ‘Self-Certification to Access University Buildings’ at the follow link.
  2. Alternatively, personnel not in possession of a valid COVID-19 Green Certification nor a Certificate of Medical Exemption for COVID-19 Immunization must still complete the “Self-Certification to Access University Buildings (Dichiarazione di accesso alle strutture universitarie)” form indicating when they received their first vaccination dose or that they have booked their second vaccination dose appointment before September 30, 2021. However, this temporary solution does not qualify personnel to participate in teaching activities held in-person at the University. The effectiveness of this solution is valid only until September 30, 2021, for which the form must be replaced by a new one declaring that they are now in possession of a valid COVID-19 Green Certification or a Certificate of Medical Exemption for COVID-19 Immunization.
  3. For personnel who are still on some form of justifiable absence on September 1, 2021, (holidays, recoveries, expectations, leave, full day leave, maternity and paternity leave, illness, an accident ...) will be required to fill in the Self-Certification to Access University Buildings (Dichiarazione di accesso alle strutture universitarie)” by the first day of return to their in-person services.
  4. The Self-Certification to Access University Buildings (Dichiarazione di accesso alle strutture universitarie form requirement is valid until December 31, 2021 (deadline for the end of the state of emergency). In the event of any changes in the conditions for issuing the Covid-19 Green Certification or the Exemption Certificate (for example expiration of validity), the access declaration shall automatically expire and all personnel will be required to fill in a new one, with updated data.

Personnel who carry out their service at the University include all staff members who work at the University, regardless of the work regime adopted. Personnel is defined as teaching staff (full professors, researchers, and contract professors), technical and administrative staff, CEL staff, agricultural workers, and staff of research bodies holding an agreement with the University.
