Information for Elettra and FERMI users

 Respiratory protective equipment at Elettra

The use of respiratory protective devices such as FFP2 filtering face masks ( FFP2) is still an important measure for health protection.
Here follow the recommendations regarding the use of FFP2 masks.
 Masks are recommended:
- in environments where the number of people exceeds what specified on door signs;
- during in-person meetings, when the maximum number of people exceeds what prescribed by the SPP (Prevention and Protection Service) concerning the use of meeting rooms;
- whenever a gathering of people occurs, even occasionally;
- when queueing for access to premises, the canteen or other public places (e.g. refreshment rooms);
- for those who share their work environment with personnel included in the “vulnerable” category;
- in presence of any symptoms affecting the respiratory tract;
- in the lifts.
The use of FFP2 face masks is not necessary:
- outdoors;
- whenever the maximum number of people allowed in an environment does not exceed what established on door signs;
- in public areas, such as corridors, stairs, entrance hallways etc. where there is no risk of creating gatherings of people.
It is recommended that everyone always has a FFP2 face mask ready to use, if needed; if not available please contact the beamline scientist in charge.

- FFP2 masks remain compulsory on public transports (airplanes excluded, where masks are only recommended).
Personal hygiene precautions
            It is mandatory for everyone inside Elettra premises to adopt all the hygiene precautions, particularly with regard to hands. Sanitising gel dispensers will continue to be provided by the SPP in the usual locations.
