The Polytechnic of Leiria remains fully committed to the quality of learning and teaching, research and other activities that are developed, within a framework of safety for all members of its academic community. We are a socially responsible public higher education institution in support of our community and the regions where we operate.

To pursue this goal, we have always relied on the exemplary effort, collaboration and resilience of all members of our academic community.

We have tried to provide tranquility, stability and to reinforce the security and containment measures of the pandemic, actively collaborating with the political and health authorities, protecting everyone.

Thus, within the framework of the state of emergency declared by the Decree of the President of the Republic no. 31-A/2021 of March 25th, and taking into account the other legislative measures currently in force, in particular those applicable to higher education and, after hearing the School Deans, I determine:

1. The operating conditions of the 2nd semester established by Order no. 40/2021 are extended until the 17th of April;

2. The resumption of in-person activities is being planned to take place on April 19th, with the framework presented by the Government for higher education institutions, complying with all the guidelines of the health authorities, reinforcing the testing plan of the academic community.

Let the academic community know and publish it on the website of the Polytechnic of Leiria.
