by CNRS@ASEAN - published on

You will find below the message from the Secretary General of MESRI concerning risk control measures related to Coronavirus.

These instructions correspond on all points with those previously issued by the CNRS. (read here)

In order to respond to certain concerns in the laboratories, it is clearly stated that: Regarding the reception of young people and adults from China (or in contact with people returning from China), there is no contraindication to their reception.

Concerning the CNRS :

  • any mission in China is suspended pending the evolution of the situation,
  • China is now a so-called risky country since the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs classified an entire region as "red". Any mission in China now requires a prior opinion from the Director of Security of the CNRS.
  • For any destination, all missionaries must go to the MEAE website "Conseils aux voyageurs" on the tab of the country or countries they will be visiting (including stopovers between flights) to find out what measures have been taken by the country or countries concerned to deal with this epidemic.
