Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Our number one priority is the health of everyone who lives, works or studies on EPFL’s campuses in Ecublens, Geneva, Neuchâtel, Fribourg and Sion.

And each and every one of us has a part to play in this. The measures that EPFL has taken reflect our shared responsibility to protect those who are at especially high risk – people whose lives intersect with ours both on campus and around town. We must do all we can to slow the spread of this disease.
