Face masks are no longer compulsory at the UPC

The UPC has published the instruction that includes the changes derived from the Royal Decree 286/2022, of 19 April, which amends the Mandatory use of a mask during a health crisis caused by COVID-19.

As a result of these changes, face masks are no longer compulsory in academic activities, both for teaching staff and for students at the UPC.

Face masks continue to be compulsory in the following situations:
- Shared use of an elevator.
- When a person has tested positive for COVID-19, at all times.
- When a person has symptoms compatible with COVID-19, at all times.

Face masks are recommended in situations in which there is a gathering of people, a safe distance cannot be maintained and ventilation is less than optimal.
