Order No 1/R/2021: on the operation of the University of Madeira – Covid-19 Measures

All classroom activities, including evaluations, are suspended until January 10. The classes that can take place online should normally take place in this digital environment.

Non-teaching activities that cannot be postponed, in particular those related to research work, may be carried out at UMa's premises. Regarding the Penteada University Campus, an attempt will be made to keep a record of those present, at the main entrance, on entry and exit, by reading the UMa's identification card; and through the car park's doors, for its users.

With regard to teleworking, for non-teaching workers, the heads of the Services should articulate its functioning with the Administrators of the University of Madeira and of the Social Services.

According to today's Regional Government press release, any UMa/SASUMa worker with dependents under the age of 12 years, and who needs to stay at home to accompany his/her child, because he/she attends an educational establishment in the municipalities of Funchal, Câmara de Lobos and Ribeira Brava, will see his/her lack of work justified, with a limit of one guardian per household.

For the adoption of further measures, UMa awaits the definition of the measures which will be the subject of a Government Council Resolution at a meeting to be held tomorrow morning, 4 January 2021.
