2023-2024 COVID Policy
There are currently no measures or restrictions due to COVID-19 at Franklin University Switzerland. However, we are continuing to monitor the situation. We recommend that our community members wear a face mask if experiencing flu-like symptoms and practice basic hand-hygiene regularly. To learn more about the current COVID status in Switzerland visit this site: https://www.covid19.admin.ch/en/overview.
As of May 1 2023, COVID-19 vaccinations in Ticino can only be administered with a valid medical prescription at a local pharmacy or medical office that offers it. The list is available at https://www4.ti.ch/dss/dsp/covid19/vaccinazione/vaccinazione.
For a COVID-19 vaccination to be carried out for travel reasons, a certificate is needed, and the individual should make an appointment at the travel medicine service of the Lugano Civic Hospital (+41 (0)91 811 60 21). Please contact the Franklin Coordinator of Health and Wellness at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need assistance making an appointment. We recommend reviewing the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) website for further guidance on vaccinations: https://www.bag.admin.ch/bag/en/home/gesund-leben/gesundheitsfoerderung-und-praevention/impfungen-prophylaxe.html
If you tested positive for COVID, you must inform the university by sending an email to email@example.com within 24 hours. We will then provide further health-related support and guidance.
