Our President’s message on Coronavirus


Dear colleagues, dear students,

as I mentioned in my two previous messages on coronavirus, we regularly meet with the Director General of Services to closely monitor health developments on the basis of information provided by public health authorities.

The e-mail address set up (Cette adresse e-mail est protégée contre les robots spammeurs. Vous devez activer le JavaScript pour la visualiser.) has answered several questions showing that no major concerns are being found.

In recent days, French public health authorities have clarified their recommendations for people returning from China (including Hong Kong and Macao).


In accordance with these, the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation therefore recommends that :

  • its universities and schools postpone any departure of students, researchers, teacher-researchers, administrative staff to China, which is not essential;
  • students, researchers, teachers-researchers and mobility staff in China consider temporarily interrupting their stay while waiting for local conditions to improve.


For people arriving from China within 14 days:

  • monitor the temperature twice a day;
  • wear a surgical mask in the presence of the surrounding sentourage and outside the home;
  • reduce non-essential activities and close contacts (meetings, elevators, canteen, restaurant, evenings, cinema, etc.) and avoid frequenting places where fragile people are located (hospitals, maternity wards, accommodation facilities for the elderly);
  • wash your hands regularly and/or use a hydro-alcoholic solution;
  • in case of fever or fever, cough, difficulty breathing: contact emergency number 15 quickly by reporting the trip and do not go directly to the doctor or to the hospital emergency room.


Thus, the instructions to date of university of Burgundy (uB) are:


From France to China
: no mission, internship or study period in China will be allowed until further notice.

From China to France : any staff, doctoral student or student arriving from China at uB is asked to place themselves in telework or study remotely for 14 days after arriving in France, without showing up at their place of work or study.


It is also highly recommended that anybody arriving from China strictly apply the following instructions:

  • monitor the temperature twice a day;
  • wear a surgical mask in the presence of the surrounding sentourage and outside the home;
  • reduce non-essential activities and close contacts (meetings, elevators, canteen, restaurant, evenings, cinema, etc.) and avoid frequenting places where fragile people are located (hospitals, maternity wards, accommodation facilities for the elderly);
  • wash your hands regularly and/or use a hydro-alcoholic solution.


When returning to France, in case of symptoms of respiratory infection, it is recommended to apply the same measures and call the emergency number 15 quickly, and not to go to a general practitioner, CPSU or emergency department.

Many countries have special instructions so it is necessary for people who go on missions, regardless of their destination, to consult the instructions to travellers about the concerned countries until the last moment before they leave.

Knowing that you can count on the attention and vigilance of each and every one, be assured dear colleagues, dear students, of my full and full dedication.


Alain BONNIN
President of the University of Burgundy
