Corona update

Update 7 March 2022

The Advisory Committee has decided  to switch to 'code yellow'.
This means that also in adult education corona measures are relaxed.

From Monday 7 March, wearing a mouth mask in our buildings and classrooms is no longer mandatory. However, like KU Leuven, we still strongly recommend it, especially where many people meet in small spaces.

We also urge you to remain vigilant and follow this advice:

  • Keep a safe distance (1.5 m) as much as possible.
  • In case of symptoms: get tested and do not come to the campus.
  • Respect the quarantine and isolation rules.
  • Wear your mouth mask
    • if you belong to a risk group.
    • when you feel unsafe.
    • when you come to class after a high-risk contact

We continue to focus on ventilation. Hand sanitiser remains available in the classrooms.

We would like to seize this opportunity to thank you very much for your class attendance and for all the efforts you have put in over the past few months.

We wish you a fruitful and carefree continuation of the school year.

Corona

Update 1 December 2021

The number of COVID infections continues to rise in Flemish education. The CLT wants to do its utmost to ensure the safety of everyone who follows lessons and teaches on campus.

  • All students and staff members wear a mouth mask during educational and examination activities.
  • Hand gel is available in all classrooms.
  • Maximum use is made of ventilation and CO2 measurement.

Ventilation

Maximum ventilation of the classrooms takes place before the start of the lesson and during the breaks (windows and doors open).

During lessons, ventilation is used as much as possible. In very cold weather some windows are preferably tilted or ajar. Additional ventilation is also provided through open doors.

We advise everyone to spend their breaks outside as much as possible.

In mechanically ventilated classrooms (recognisable by the information sheet with the fan on the door), ventilation is controlled automatically and set on the basis of a CO2 concentration that guarantees sufficient air exchange and comfort. For the time being, there are no locally readable CO2 meters here. These have been ordered but not yet delivered.

In the other non-mechanically ventilated classrooms, locally readable CO2 meters have been installed. This CO2 meter gives an indication to ventilate via windows and doors:

  • Blue: ventilation and air exchange are sufficient. Organise some ventilation to keep it that way.
  • Yellow: additional ventilation is recommended; leave windows and/or doors ajar, preferably if possible (diagonally) opposite each other.
  • Red: maximum ventilation is necessary to return to at least a yellow level as quickly as possible.

Update 26 October 2021

Unfortunately, the Corona figures are rising again.
We would like to do our utmost to maintain full contact teaching.

Therefore we have decided to make wearing a mouth mask at all times compulsory again from Wednesday 27 October. Please wear a mask in the buildings and during class.

When you eat, you do not need to wear a mask.

Observe 1.5m distance when possible.

Go outside during the break.

Disinfect your hands regularly.

Stay home if you have symptoms.

Thank you for respecting these measures!

Update 3 October 2021

The high vaccination rate in Flanders, together with the relaxation in society at large, justify that the corona measures are also relaxing in adult education in Flanders.

The mouth mask obligation will also expire in adult education from 1 October in Flanders.

We follow the rules that apply to society at large from 1 October.

Students and staff should therefore no longer wear a mouth mask. They are nevertheless free to wear the mask. It is also advisable to still keep the 1,5 meters distance.

The disappearance of the mouth mask obligation goes hand in hand with continued attention to other precautions. In particular, adequate ventilation remains essential as a measure to prevent contamination.

The prevention service VGM of KU Leuven continues to argue for wearing a mouth mask if a 1.5 meters distance is not possible.

For contact tracing it is always advisable to sit in the same place in the classroom.

Update 10 September 2021

There is no longer a capacity limitation for on campus courses. It is no longer mandatory to keep a 1,5 meters distance between students in the classrooms.

There is no mouth mask obligation when sitting or standing still in class.

However, when a 1.5 meters distance is not possible and when walking around in the classroom, the mouth mask is strongly recommended.

Teachers wear face masks when walking around the classroom. When they are sitting at their desks or teaching in front of the class, they are allowed to take their mask off.

Students and staff who wish to wear a mouth mask can do this.

In busy places and during movements in buildings, everyone (staff and students) keeps their distance or wears a mouth mask.

Maximum ventilation and good hand hygiene remain important.

Update 20 August 2021

As decided by the Minister of Education, the current corona measures will be relaxed from 1 September:

There is no longer a capacity limitation for on campus courses. It is no longer mandatory to keep a 1,5 meters distance between students in the classrooms.

There is no mouth mask obligation when sitting or standing still in class.

Teachers wear face masks when walking around the classroom. When they are sitting at their desks or teaching in front of the class, they are allowed to take their mask off.

Students and staff who wish to wear a mouth mask can do this.

In busy places and during movements in buildings, everyone (staff and students) keeps their distance or wears a mouth mask.

We're looking forward to welcoming you again on campus Leuven!

Update 1 May 2021

The risk of infection is still high, especially in view of the new corona variants. That is why code red also remains in force in adult education during the month of May.

The lessons will therefore continue to be conducted 100% online and evaluations that are planned in the month of May will also take place online.

Update 12 April 2021

As decided by the Minister of Education, the current corona measures will not be relaxed after the Easter holidays. The lessons therefore continue 100% online.

Update 25 March 2021

You will have heard in the news that the government has taken new measures to stop the spread of the corona virus.

By Saturday 27 March (13:00) your teacher will inform you how this will affect your classes next week.

Update 15 february 2021

After the spring break schools maintain the same safety measures that applied before the break. This means that adult education remains in phase red. All current measures and modalities for your lessons remain in place.

Why does adult education opt for this approach?

Clarity for staff and students.

The corona figures in Flanders are better than most regions in Europe. But caution is advised.

The preventive measures are effective.

Update 21 January 2021

As decided by the Minister of Education, the current corona measures will not be relaxed until the end of the spring break (Sunday 21 February).

Update 21 November 2020

On October 20, 2020, our Board of directors opted for a switch to 100 % online lessons from October 26 to November 21, 2020.

How shall we proceed in the weeks to come? After internal consultation, we opt for the safest arrangement feasible and continue to run our courses 100 % online until the Christmas holidays (until December 19, 2020). We remain committed to providing extra support for those who need it. Do not hesitate to contact your teacher or the helpdesk. The office can be reached by appointment (via https://portaal.clt.be/reservations/2). There will be a re-evaluation of the situation during the Xmas holiday.

We would like to seize this opportunity to thank you all very much for your enthusiasm, your perseverance and the many positive reactions we have received about the organization of our online classes. We value your feedback and take it to heart. We would also like to extend our appreciation to your housemates who find themselves banned from the living room during classes or come to your rescue when technology lets you down.
