The rector sent an email around. I think the idea is that staff will be able to upload the QR code of the Green Pass onto their personal portal, where daily checks will be carried out. This isn't a breach of privacy, since the only information you can get from scanning the QR code is the name and date of birth of the person, and whether the code is valid or not. What they can't do, for example, is ask for or store our vaccination or infection histories.
A sample of the students' Green Passes will be checked but the main point is that it's not the teaching staff who will have to do it.
... the Administration is setting up a control system for staff using a platform that will be made available in the coming days. Colleagues will be asked to load the QR-Code, read daily by the same application used by retailers and public administrations in compliance with the protection of individual privacy.
I remind you that even for students, the possession of the Green Pass is mandatory, the validity of which can be verified by the staff responsible for controls. These will be carried out on a sample basis, as required by the regulatory framework. It is therefore neither the obligation nor the responsibility of the professors to carry out any verification in this regard during exams and/or lectures.
In addition, the other measures specifically provided for to contain the contagion, namely the use of respiratory protection devices in enclosed areas and the prohibition of residence in rooms with a body temperature above 37.5 degrees, remain active. The distance of 1 meter is also recommended, as long as it does not limit participation in attendance.
Well, the law comes into force tomorrow even if term doesn't start for another couple of weeks; some of the students will have exams before then and of course the rest of us are at work just generally.
