Here are the latest information related to the COVID-19 crisis at Rennes School of Business.
Since the 7 September, Rennes School of Business has successfully welcomed nearly 2500 PGE 1 & 2 and IBPM 1 & 2 students. On a campus that has been adapted to comply with health regulations, our classes, community life and events, such as the Design Sprint, have taken place with energy and enthusiasm.
On the 5 October, our School must coordinate the arrival of a large number of PGE3, MSc and IBPM3 students in the best possible conditions.
We are currently observing an increase in the circulation of coronavirus in the Rennes metropolis and indirectly in the number of students under surveillance. In agreement with the Regional Health Agency, the Management of Rennes School of Business has taken the decision to suspend access to its campus for all students from Monday 21 September to Sunday 4 October. By activating this SAFER (Secure Access For Entry Return) plan, we aim to provide the best possible conditions to all our students from the 5 October and contribute to limiting the spread of the virus in the Rennes region.
In order to put this into practice, we therefore invite all of our students to remain at home for the next two weeks, to continue with their classes remotely and to strictly apply the health measures communicated by the Regional Health Agency:
– maintain barrier gestures in all circumstances (wearing a mask, social distancing, hand hygiene),
– remain confined for the 14-day duration (no social interaction and no visits from parents or grandparents, especially those at risk of severe forms of the virus).
Students that are already under supervision will be tested as a matter of priority.
The campus remains open without interruption for staff and teachers. The organisation put in place and the investments made over the last six months will help allow for this temporary period to be managed smoothly.
Director General and Dean, Thomas Froehlicher, reminds us that “during these first welcome weeks, we have gained essential experience for the new academic year. This complete switch over to a two-week period of virtual classes will be repeated as often as necessary to guarantee the secure sanitary standards of our School. It will thus contribute to stopping the circulation of coronavirus, in close cooperation with the Regional Health Agency (ARS) and the health authorities. We hope that this episode will also encourage our students to respect barrier gestures more closely when off-campus”.
Unless announced otherwise by authorities due to a general change in the health situation, face-to-face classes will resume on the 5 October, along with all other association and student activities. The eLive building in Rennes SB will be inaugurated on the same day, revealing 21 classrooms and around 15 multi-use and multi-user meeting rooms for hybrid teaching. These classrooms that are newly equipped with audio-visual equipment make it possible to create live hybrid courses, bringing together students that are present on campus and those who following their classes at a distance either in France or abroad.
