The IFSP published this thursday (4) um Biosafety Protocol for face-to-face activitiesO documento was between December 2020 and February 2021. For its elaboration, a commission was set up, designated by the Ordinance No. 3909, of October 10, 2020, altered by Ordinance No. 50, of January 05, 2021composed of servers working in the pró-rectorias and in the office, including a doctor in the health service, with the task of studying different protocols prepared by health authorities and scientific institutions involved in combating the pandemic, and establishing general guidelines for a biosafety protocol when returning to face-to-face activities.  

Right in its presentation, the document highlights that the elaboration of a biosafety protocol for face-to-face activities is not associated with any prediction of a return date, which should only occur by the release of national, state and municipal health authorities and institutional decision by the IFSP. The protocol must be established in advance for adequate planning for when safe return is possible, including provision for the acquisition of inputs by managers, whether for the best basis for when and where this return is not possible.  

The commission responsible for preparing the document was guided by other protocols established by health authorities and in the knowledge of the different spaces and processes of the IFSP. For the library space, for example, a committeeare specific, appointed by Ordinance No. 2030, of May 26, 2020, developed guidelines that were studied and incorporated into the Biosafety Protocol. OK point out that the protocol is a general guideline, so the specifics of each campus and rectory to develop complementary local protocols when necessary.  

The document is divided into 7 parts: 1 - General Recommendations, which include hygiene recommendations; two- Specific recommendations to servers; 3 - Recommendations to the managers of the IFSP units; 4 - Specific recommendations regarding students - NAPNE audience; 5 - Specific recommendations by environment; 6 - Occupation of spaces; and 7 - Final considerations.  

As a way of making the work carried out as transparent as possible, the working group highlights, among other points, that the protocol does not give any expected date for the return of face-to-face activities, being a planning tool for a safe return, when the conditions allow it. O hearsimento is that, given the dynamics of the pandemic and the studies still ongoing on the novo coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), even when there is a consensus that face-to-face activities can be performed, care must be taken in a preventive manner 

In addition, the newo document does not intend to invalidate others elaborated by campus. On the contrary, they are general guidelines that must be observed, considering that local specificities must be considered, and may require additional documents..
