Our President’s message on Coronavirus

Publié le jeudi 13 février 2020

Dear colleagues, dear students,

The French public health authorities have updated the recommendations for action on Covid-19. As of today, people returning from :

must comply with the recommendations below.

For persons arriving from the areas concerned, within 14 days :

In case of fever or feeling of fever, cough, difficulty breathing :

In addition, the uB's instructions are as follows : 

On return to France, it is recommended to apply the same measures and in case of symptoms of respiratory infection to call the SAMU - Centre 15 quickly and not to go to a general practitioner, the CPSU or an emergency service.

Many countries have specific instructions: it is therefore necessary for people going on mission, whatever their destination, to consult the instructions for travellers from the countries concerned by their trip on the site of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs until the last moment before their departure.

Furthermore, as the list of countries concerned can change rapidly and regularly, we recommend that people who have to travel abroad or who are returning to France frequently consult the French Public Health website: https://www.santepubliquefrance.fr/.

Finally, I remind you that an email address is available (Cette adresse e-mail est protégée contre les robots spammeurs. Vous devez activer le JavaScript pour la visualiser.) to answer your specific questions.

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

Alain BONNIN
President of the University of Burgundy
