COVID-19

Welcome to our vibrant campuses!

We are open – and can’t wait to welcome you to our campuses, to experience our educational programmes, events and gatherings.

Your Vlerick experience is going to be stimulating, exciting, thought provoking and life changing. And together, we can make it safe and comfortable too.

From 7 March, the Belgian government switched to code yellow. This means we can relax Covid-19 measures, in line with the guidelines of our parent universities. But as the virus is not completely gone, we’re still keeping some general safety measures on our campuses.

Face masks and Covid Safe Ticket

Face masks are no longer compulsory on our campuses. So you’ll now be able to enjoy smiles and happy faces around you again. However, if you feel more comfortable wearing a face mask, you can of course continue to do so. The Corona Safe Ticket (CST) is no longer required on campus.

We do still strongly recommend wearing a face mask in large gatherings – particularly in small spaces. We also recommend them in one-to-one settings, or if infection would place you at high risk because of underlying health conditions.

General safety measures

Now that protective measures are being lifted, it’s more important than ever that we each take individual responsibility for containing the virus – whether we’re faculty, staff, participant, student or visitor.

  • Hand sanitising: hand gel is available through all our buildings for you to use.
  • Air cleansing technology: our lecture rooms, large meeting rooms, catering areas and bathrooms are all equipped with CO2 air quality meters – and Airsteril clean air technology.

If you’re feeling unwell…

If you’re experiencing Covid symptoms, are feeling unwell – or you’ve been in contact with someone who’s infected – please stay away so that you don’t spread the virus. If you start to feel unwell while you’re on campus, please be sensible and go home.

There are free lateral flow tests available at reception if you would like to test yourself at any time.

These are the Belgian government guidelines for what to do if you think you may have Covid.

International travel

If you’re an international student or participant, and you’re traveling to and from Belgium, you must comply with the guidelines and colour codes for international travel.
