Life at the Paris IAS during the Covid-19 period

16 oct 2020 16:00 - 30 oct 2020 16:00

While the health crisis that continues throughout the world, the priority of the Paris Institute for Advanced Study remains the safety and well-being of its team, its Fellows and the public, in strict compliance with the health recommendations issued by the Government.
Barrier gestures (wearing of masks, frequent hand washing, use of hydroalcoholic solution, compliance with safety distances) must be respected at all times and throughout the site.

The daily life of the team and the Fellows

The masks, provided by the Institute, are mandatory for any movement throughout the building, including in the courtyard. An exception to the wearing of masks is possible when a staff member or a researcher is working alone in his or her office.
Hydroalcoholic gel dispensers are installed at the entrance of the building, in the cafeteria and at the level of the elevators, and a cleaning service for the common areas has been set up.

The cafeteria reopened its doors at the beginning of September, offering individualized meal trays, as well as two services in order to avoid being too close. Wearing a mask is still mandatory for any visit to the cafeteria. Tables and chairs in the cafeteria have been placed at a distance. Finally, as long as the weather permits, meals in the courtyard are preferred.

The meetings and internal seminars of our researchers are now online, or can take place outside in the courtyard of the Institute.

Access to the library remains possible while respecting barrier gestures.

Events organized or hosted

Many events now take place online, or in a hybrid way respecting the barrier gestures.
The capacity of our reception rooms dedicated to scientific events has been reduced and adapted to minimize the risks of contamination.

In case of symptoms Covid-19

Any person (team member, researcher or visitor) experiencing symptoms of Covid-19 (fever or feeling of fever, cough, sudden loss of smell, disappearance of taste) is invited to stay at home, consult a doctor and immediately inform the Secretariat General and the Paris IAS Management who will make the necessary arrangements with the contact persons.

We thank you for your understanding and will do our best to keep you informed of future developments.
