General Covid-19 Prevention Concept for the implementation of USI events (courses, camps and championships) at the University Sports Institute Leoben (status Feb 2022)

The University Sports Institute Leoben as a service institution of the University of Leoben will fulfil its legal duty of care for all universities at the location (§ 40 UG 2002) as far as possible also during the present crisis situation. For this purpose - on the basis of the respectively valid requirements of the government and authorities, as well as the respectively valid requirements of the University of Leoben (traffic light status) - the present concept is to be understood as a supplement to the General Terms and Conditions of the USI and thus has a binding character for all participants in USI sports. Basically, we would like to point out that with every participation in the USI sports programme, the participants are responsible for complying with the legal regulations in the COVID context as amended from time to time. The regulations at the University of Leoben can be changed at any time by decision of the rectorate.

 

1. In General

> All participation in the USI sports programme is on the participant's own responsibility, this also and especially applies to all persons belonging to a risk group.

> All participants are called upon and undertake to act responsibly and to always observe and support all measures that can minimise the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

> The number of participants per course will be adjusted according to the situation. Participation without registration ("taster") is not possible at the moment.

 

2. Prerequisite for a USI course participation/championship:
At the moment there are no "covid restrictions" - just come healthy and prepared for the course ;-)
 

3. Rules of conduct in the whole USI

> Symptom-free during training/competition.

> Observance of usual general hygiene measures

> Mouth-nose protection (or FFP2 mask): A mechanical protective device covering the mouth and nose area is proposed inside the building

> Bringing towels or your own material (mats etc.) is recommended. 

> Ventilate the cloakrooms, training rooms as often as possible.

> Physical contact sports: Subject to the corresponding special prevention concept of the professional association or other higher-level organisations. The rules applicable at the USI are based on the respective guidelines shown on the homepage of the federal sports organisation Sport Austria ( www.sportaustria.at/de/schwerpunkte/mitgliederservice/informationen-zum-coronavirus/ ).

> USI competitions are explicitly organised as mass sport events and not as top sport events. The organisation is based on the respective valid measures, issued by the respective professional associations and shown on the homepage of the Federal Sports Organisation Sport Austria.

( www.sportaustria.at/de/schwerpunkte/mitgliederservice/informationen-zum-coronavirus/ or www.ris.bka.gv.at/GeltendeFassung.wxe

> Depending on the type of sport, the number of participants and the respective valid regulations, a prevention concept will be worked out separately for each championship or a COVID-19 representative will be appointed.

4. Obligations for USI instructors

> Exclusion of participants: USI instructors are obliged to exclude participants who do not appear healthy (especially in case of symptoms such as fever, flu or cough) from the event and to ask them to leave the facility

> USI trainers regularly inform participants of the measures and monitor compliance

> The course instructors undertake to ensure that only registered persons participate in the respective course (contact tracing). The lists of participants are available to the course leaders on the USI homepage

 

5. Communication of the preventive concept

> The USI course instructors will be familiarised with the concept directly at the USI teachers conference at the beginning of the semester and will be informed by e-mail if there are any changes to the concept. Where courses are offered by third parties, the USI will ensure that they have a prevention concept specific to the sport.

> For questions regarding the prevention concept, the USI course leaders are the first point of contact for the participants on site.

> The prevention concept will be displayed on the USI homepage and integrated into the general terms and conditions. In addition, the participants will be informed about the protective measures via the existing channels of the USI (e-mail, Facebook) or by means of a notice board.

> The applicable GTCs must be accepted with the enrolment, otherwise enrolment will not be possible.

 

6. Occurrence of a SARS-CoV-2 case at the USI Leoben

> If you have symptoms or fear to have contracted COVID, please stay at home and contact 1450.

> Report to the USI Leoben via the e-mail address: usi@unileoben.ac.at.

> Fill in the corresponding online form of the University of Leoben on your own:

corona.unileoben.ac.at

> COVID-19 contact person at the University of Leoben informs the local health authority.

> Further steps will be ordered by the local health authority

> Testing and similar measures are carried out on the instructions of the health authority

> The USI supports the implementation of all measures as a matter of course

> Documentation by the COVID 19 contact person of the USI of which persons had contact with the person concerned and the type of contact, based on the presence lists. If necessary, the necessary data is passed on to the competent health authority.

If a case of illness is confirmed, further measures (e.g. disinfection of the sports facility) are taken on the instructions of the health authority.
