The general rule is to follow the guidelines at your partner institution. Each institution has their way of handling the current situation so for more details, we would like to refer to the COVID-19 measures of each partner institution. This includes both instructions on an educational level and measures to guarantee a safe environment (health, hygiene, etc.).
