A message by  Marie-France  ZUMOFEN,  Executive  Director  of  ISIPCA.

Dear  all,

Wherever  you  come  from,  moving  forward  in  a  safe  environment  is  our  first  common  goal!

 

To  date,  the  best  way  to  reach  our  goal  and  enable  us  all  to  study  and  work  successfully  is  to IMPLEMENT  REAL  HEALTH  MEASURES  AND PRACTICE  PHYSICAL  DISTANCING.

We are  obviously  not  denying  that  the  virus  is  rampant  all  over  the  world,  but  we  will  not  stop  living, studying  and  socializing.  So  we  must  all  do  our  best  to  protect  everyone  and  create  a  healthy  and safe  environment.  No  doubt  we  can  all  do  it!

At  ISIPCA,  the  Leading  Graduate  School  of  the  Greater  Paris  Chamber  of  Commerce  and  Industry, dedicated  to  Business  and  Science  in  Fragrances,  Cosmetics  and  Flavors,  we  are  all  responsible and aware.  After  a  long  period  of  distance  learning  mixing  a  few  short  periods  on  campus,  before the  summer,  all  students  of  our  French-taught  programs  have  been  back  to  our  charming  campus in  Versailles since  1  September  2020  along  with  our  faculty  members,  researchers  and  teams  and partners.  And  we  look  forward  to  welcoming  our  International  Freshers  very  soon  online  first  and then  on  campus.

Everyone  is  doing  well  and  respecting  all  the  measures  we  have  taken  to  protect  themselves  and other  students,  their  families,  friends  and  colleagues  and  teammates  from  the  coronavirus  disease Covid-19. 

We  follow  daily  news  on  health  instructions  that  we respect  very  closely,  such  as  wearing  a  face  mask  in  all areas  of  the  school,  inside  and  outside,  physical distancing. 

If  educational  sequences  require  removing  the  mask  for a  very  short  period  of  smell  or  taste,  we  make  an alcoholic  solution  available  at  all  times  to  disinfect  the hands  as  well  as  the  occupied  workstation. 

 

Then  all  our  students  apply  the  major  hygiene  measures  at  school/at  home/on  public  transport:

•  wearing  a  clean  and  properly  disposed  face  mask
•  washing  their  hands  often  with  soap  and  water  or  hand  sanitizer
•  coughing  or  sneezing  into  their  elbow  or  using  a  tissue
•  using  a paper  tissue  and  then  throwing  it  in  a  trash  can  
•  using  cleaning  wipes  for  our  studying  space  /  workspace  and  IT  devices
•  ventilating  confined  spaces •  NEVER shaking  hands,  hugging  and  kissing  others
•  staying  at  least  one  metre  away  from  other  people  whenever  it  is  possible
•  NOT participating  in  mass  gatherings,  such  as  dancing/singing  parties
•  avoiding  crowded  places. 

 

At  last,  we  are  very  careful  and  protect  ourselves  and  others  by:

•  disinfecting  shared  facilities
•  following  students  individually  and  advising  them  at  the  first  sign  or  symptom
•  self-isolating  while  awaiting  test-results  or  during  medical  treatment
•  regularly  informing  the  classes  and  staff  of  the  progress  of  each  Covid-19  case.

 

Take  care  and  never  give  up!  

Reach  your  goals  and  achieve  your  projects  with  awareness  and  responsibility!

I  wish  you  all  every  success  at  ISIPCA.
