Measures taken in relation to the Coronavirus COVID – 19

Since 26 February 2020, EIPA, as an EP contractor handles the following policy for the novel coronavirus COVID 19. It follows the line of the European Parliament and applies to EIPA’s staff and external experts.

Dear colleagues/experts,

As you are surely aware, the novel coronavirus COVID 19 has now also reached Europe. Some countries and regions not yet affected have started to report community transmission of the virus. As far as we have been able to establish, and awaiting an official update of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, the following areas are concerned:

  • China, Hong Kong, Macau
  • South-Korea
  • Singapore
  • Iran
  • Japan
  • Italy: regions of Lombardy, Emilia-Romagna, Veneto, Piedmont as well as the provinces of Savona (in Liguria region) and Pesaro/Urbino (in Marche region).
  • In France:
    • Oise, and in particular the localities of Creil, Crépy en Valois, Vaumoise, Lamorlaye and Lagny le Sec.
    • Haute Savoie, and in particular the locality of La Balme.
    • Morbihan, and in particular the localities of Auray, Crac’h and Carnac.
  • In Germany:
    Landkreis Heinsberg in North Rhine-Westphalia.

If you have travelled to one of these areas within the last 14 days, you should observe the following measures:

A. If you are well and you had no (suspected) contact with a person infected with the novel Corona virus, COVID-19:

  • stay home in self-isolation and do not come to the office; you are asked to apply for teleworking; if your job does not enable you to do teleworking, please could you contact your supervisor by telephone or email to agree on possible tasks to do from home;
  • monitor your health/take your temperature twice daily for 14 days; if you develop any symptoms, please refer to section B below.
  • if after 14 days of your return, you have no symptoms, you may return to work after having received a green light from your GP.

B. In case you had any known or suspected contact with a person infected with the novel Corona virus COVID-19, or if you develop any symptoms:

  • Please contact your general practitioner for urgent advice and care. In case of medical emergency, call 112. Always inform the caregiver about your recent travel history and do not go the clinic without prior telephone contact. (When in a clinic, ask to wait in a separate room; do not stay in a waiting room with other people.)
  • Do not come to the office until you have received a green light from your doctor and an EP medical advisor.

As a general rule that is particularly important in this context, if you feel unwell or ill, you should not come to the office, but contact your GP for advice.
