According to WUR’s guidelines for the corona outbreak, you should stay home if you have symptoms of the flu or a common cold. But what if you have exams?
A discussion on Wageningen Student Plaza reveals that there is much uncertainty among students. ‘Simply telling people to stay at home if they feel unwell is not sufficient,’ the message states. ‘No-one wants to fall behind.’ The message shows a screenshot of a group conversation on the question of whether you are permitted to sit exams if you have a cold. ‘On the one hand, I want to stay home, but on the other hand, I don’t want to resit exams in the summer.’
WUR spokesperson Simon Vink stresses that you must stay at home. ‘But we don’t want our students to fall behind. We are currently working on solutions to prevent any delays. As much as possible, these solutions will be tailored individually. But first, we must contribute to curbing the spread of the virus as best we can.’
