COVID-19 Euneos Policy

Your health and safety, and keeping COVID-19 epidemic in control, are important to Euneos. In order to balance that commitment with the need for lifelong learning, we have taken the following precautions:


Courses

All Euneos courses between March 2020 and May 2020 were postponed due to the epidemic. Registered participants were supported by offering the client organizations an opportunity to move their registrations to latter sessions.

From August 2020 onwards, arrangements of each course are decided after careful consideration taking into account the situation in course location, and both national and EU recommendations.

In order to support learning also during these difficult times, Euneos has organized 13 free webinars during the lockdown. Information about the future webinars, when confirmed, will be found on Euneos website (https://www.euneoscourses.eu)


Safety arrangements in our courses

Each course will be  arranged if the location is considered safe by the authorities.
Euneos collaborates closely with the course venues, and chooses venues that are taking the new health requirements seriously. Special attention is paid to cleaning and hygiene of the venue.

Course venues are arranged so that the safe distance between all participants can always be kept.

The recommendations about the face mask use depend on the country and the general situation of the epidemic. The participants will be informed well in advance of how they should be prepared. Euneos recommends that the participants bring their own masks and hand sanitizer with them, as their availability in different locations cannot be guaranteed.


Recommendations for participants

Make flexible travel plans in case a course needs to be postponed due to an outbreak. Currently, many airlines give good flexible ticket options. Choose also accommodation on flexible terms.

In case a new outbreak prevents us from arranging a course, all participants are given options for rescheduling their registration to a latter session, but Euneos is not responsible for potential travel expenses of the participants.

Please postpone your participation in case you have any Covid-19 symptoms and inform the course administration (courses@euneos.eu) and the main trainer about it as soon as possible.
