COVID-19 Contingency Plan

Mandatory mask use

The use of an individual protection mask is mandatory to access the buildings and to stay in common areas.

Building access

Access to UPTEC buildings is exclusive to the UPTEC community members and events participants.

Each company must receive and accompany suppliers and visitors at the reception/entrance of the building. The entry of visitors and suppliers will only be allowed when properly accompanied — the use of an individual mask is mandatory.

Common areas

While staying in the common areas of UPTEC buildings, we recommend a two-meter social distance, as well as adopting measures of respiratory hygiene and cough etiquette.

We also recommend that the door handles and buttons are used with the elbow or with a disposable handkerchief, whenever possible.

At UPTEC Asprela I and UPTEC Mar, the changing rooms are now available for use.

Meeting rooms and Auditoriums

UPTEC meeting rooms can be accessed at any time and must be booked through the email seguranca.central@uptec.up.pt or +351 220 301 501.

UPTEC provides, in all meeting rooms and auditoriums, equipment and antiseptic solution for users to clean tables and chairs, before and after using it.

UPTEC auditoriums and UPTEC Baixa Garden Pavilion are hosting events, max 20 and 15 people, respectively. The events’ organisation is subject to UPTEC confirmation.

Dining areas

The dining areas are open (max 4 people per table, including in the terrace outdoor). The UPTEC Asprela I bar is in normal operation.

UPTEC provides, in each area, equipment and antiseptic solution for users to clean the table and the microwave, before and after using it.

In order to minimize the number of people using the microwave during lunchtime, access to this equipment will be done at different times:

UPTEC Asprela I

  • Floor 0 and 1: 12h00 to 13h15;

  • Floor 2 and 3: 13h15 to 14h30.


UPTEC Asprela II

  • Floor 0: 12h00 to 13h00;

  • Floor 1: 13h00 to 14h00.


UPTEC Baixa

  • Building 1: 12h00 to 13h00;

  • Building 2: 13h00 to 14h00.


UPTEC MAR

  • Buildings A, C and E: 12h00 to 13h00;

  • Buildings B and F : 13h00 to 14h00.

Vending machines remain in normal operation.

Cleaning

In order to clean the companies’ rooms, employees have to leave the area. UPTEC ensures the cleanliness of all spaces, even when there is no company representative in the room (unless otherwise specified).

UPTEC continues to:

  • provide antiseptic solution in strategic places of the building;

  • reinforce the hygiene and cleaning of coverings, objects and surfaces that are handled more often (eg.handrails, door handles, elevator buttons).

Workspaces

We recommend teleworking. In cases where it is not possible, we recommend a rotating team policy, considering the physical distance between workstations.

We also recommend the use of natural ventilation in the room, through the opening of windows and/or doors.
