Corona virus – update #27 – 20/02/2021

Re-opening the Sports Center: Updates and additional information

Dear all,

Please see below some updates regarding the re-opening of the Sport Center tomorrow:

  • Negative Corona test will NOT enable entrance (this is in contrast to my previous message on this subject).
  • Using formal Vaccination / Corona recovery confirmation will be possible tomorrow as many people who were vaccinated have not yet printed the Green Badge Confirmation.  But, from Monday onwards, entrance will be possible only to those holding formal Green Badge confirmations (please look for the RAMZOR website of the Ministry of Public Health where one can print these confirmations).
  • The numbers of people staying simultaneously in the swimming pools complex and the gym are restricted by the Green Badge regulation to maximum capacity figures.  We will monitor these numbers and in case we reach these ceilings, new arrivals will have to wait until some users of the center leave.  If and when the demand to the center’s facilities will surge, we will reinstall an early reservation system.
  • At this stage, children under the age of 16 are not allowed to enter the Sport Center.
  • Users of the center’s facilities are kindly requested to follow the guidelines printed and pasted inside the complex.
  • The gym will reopen tomorrow on 7AM and the pool complex at 10AM.

Wishing good health to all,

Boaz

 

 

 

Corona virus – update #25 – 18/02/2021

Vaccination option on campus next week

Dear faculty members,  Technion and TRDF employees, and students,

In support of the Israeli government’s effort to vaccinate the Israeli population against the Coronavirus, the Technion, in cooperation with the Ministry of Public Health, will be offering a vaccination program on campus next week.

Anyone interested in receiving the vaccination, please register here .  If we’ll see sufficient demand, Magen David Adom will set up a vaccination booth in the Zilony Student Union building.  The exact date will be announced after we will know the number of people registered and an appropriate notice will be distributed.

Members of all 4 major HMOs ( Clalit, Leumit, Maccabi and Meuhedet) will all be able to receive the vaccination in this booth.

Vaccinations will not be available for those who have recovered from the Corona virus, those who are currently ill with COVID-19, or those who are under 16 years of age.

 

 

Sincerely,

 

Boaz

Corona virus – update #23 – 10/01/2021 (Hebrew)

יוצרים קמפוס בטוח: בדיקות נאור

שלום רב,

עד להתחסנותה של כלל האוכלוסייה, ובמקביל לשמירה הדוקה על כללי התו הסגול, אחת הדרכים היעילות ביותר לקטיעת שרשראות ההדבקה ולשמירה על בריאות באי קמפוס הטכניון היא הפעלת מערך של בדיקות מהירות ותכופות לאיתור הנגיף.

לאחר מאמץ ממושך של צוות מחקר ייעודי ומרכזי פרויקט “קמפוס בטוח” (הפרופ’ דני רז ממדעי המחשב ואביגדור גל מהנדסת תעו”נ), הנהלת הטכניון גאה להכריז על מבצע בדיקות מהיר ונרחב למען השמירה על בריאות הסטודנטים הגרים במעונות. המבצע ייצא לדרך השבוע לטובת הסטודנטים, העובדים וחברי הסגל. השקת מערך הבדיקות הגיעה במקביל להתפרצות המחודשת של המגפה בארץ והעלייה הדרמטית במספר החולים והדבר רק מעצים את חשיבותו.

הבדיקה המהירה פותחה ע”י ד”ר נעמה גבע-זטורסקי מהפקולטה לרפואה ע”ש רפפורט, בשיתוף חוקרים מביה”ח רמב”ם וממפא”ת, באפריל האחרון. הטכנולוגיה מוסחרה על ידי הטכניון להמשך פיתוח בחברת ראפיד דיאגנוסטיק סיסטמס בע״מ, המפתחת את הפלטפורמה תחת השם NaorCov19″  (www.naordia.com)”.

היום נפתחה לראשונה בארץ עמדת “NaorCov19” לבדיקה מהירה בטכניון. הבדיקות זמינות עבורכם מידי יום בעמדה הממוקמת בקומה 1 בבית הסטודנט, בשעות 10:30 – 12:30.

מומלץ למלא את הטפסים הנדרשים לבדיקה עוד בטרם הגיעכם לבדיקה הראשונה, על מנת למנוע התקהלויות. הקישור הישיר לטפסים נמצא כאן לנוחותכם:
