Welcome to CY Cergy Paris University

Activation of the business continuity plan

Reminder of the instructions related to the COVID-19 epidemic

Students and staff, instructions are subject to change. Please regularly consult your CY Cergy Paris University mailbox to keep you informed of the latest updates on the situation and of ministerial recommendations.

France has been placed in stage 3 of the COVID-19 Coronavirus epidemic, a virus present on the territory and whose effects are to be mitigated.

Ministerial instructions

The President of the Republic announced on Thursday, March 12 a series of measures, which include at a minimum the closing to the public of all higher education establishments as of Monday, March 16 and until further notice. A decree has been issued to this effect.

Consult the closure order of the establishment (March 16, 2020)

All the premises of the establishment are closed:

  • to the public and users, from Monday March 16, 8 a.m.;
  • to all staff, from Monday March 16 at 6 p.m., in order to allow safely and the orderly shutdown of activities and facilities.

In order to meet service continuity obligations, the establishment organizes its operation remotely. The business continuity plan is therefore activated.

You are asked to comply with the following general measures, recommended by the Ministry of Solidarity and Health and passed on by the Ministry for Higher Education, Research and Innovation.

General instructions

In terms of infection, there are simple things you can do to keep yourself and those around you healthy:

  • wash your hands very regularly,
  • cough or sneeze into your elbow,
  • greet people without shaking hands or kissing,
  • use disposable tissues.

Also, you are reminded that there is no point wearing a mask if you are not sick, unless you are a healthcare worker or are attending to a sick person.

If symptoms appear:

  • do not go to the doctor or to the hospital,
  • contact 15,
  • stay at home and inform the university,
  • wear a mask during visits.
