COVID-19

FAECTOR during COVID-19

As a study association with over 2000 members, FAECTOR holds a lot of responsibility when it comes to COVID-19. Every day, the board of FAECTOR is working actively on the following. On the one hand, to spread awareness under our students, and on the other, to think of coronaproof solutions during our own events.

First and foremost, we think it is of great importance that Econometrics students are able to interact with each other. We recognise the value of meeting other students from the same study, so through our events, we stimulate this integration as much as possible.

Of course, all of our events are organised with the RIVM guidelines in mind. Our events policy is explained more in-depth below.

Events Policy

During our events, we face a trade-off between creating a fun environment for our students while creating a safe environment for them as well. Our aim is to facilitate as many students as possible, as we notice a high demand for social interaction. 

All of our introduction activities are organised in communication with the safety region Rotterdam-Rijnmond. Additionally, we are in close contact with the university and other student associations to ensure we can make the most of this year. Please note that due to the quickly changing rules and regulations, all our events are prone to changes as well and it might be that when promoting events there is less certainty about the exact schedules than you are used to.

At our events, we adhere to the RIVM guidelines that are applicable at that time. This means that students might be seated in smaller groups, with distance between tables, or that we work with arrival shifts to avoid clustering of people outside or at the venue. At physical events, students that suffer from potential symptoms related to Covid-19 are not welcome. Moreover, in the coming academic year, it might be that some of our events require either a negative test, proof of recent infection or proof of vaccination. This way we hope to be able to organise as much offline events as possible. If this is the case, we will clearly communicate it to everyone, both during promotion, sale and in the confirmation emails.

Additional Information

If you have been to one of our events and you are tested positive for the Covid-19, we urge you to report this to us as soon as possible. This way we can prevent the potential spreading of the disease and hope to contain any outbreaks. You'll remain anononymous. Please note the importance of reporting any positive test results to us, as this is the only way we can prevent the spreading of the disease together. It is also the only way we can keep organising physical events, which is for the benefit of all your fellow students.

If you have any questions or remarks about our Covid-19 policy, or if you wish to report a positive test result, do not hesitate to reach out to us at corona@faector.nl!
