Given the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, the TBS campus in Barcelona has taken a series of measures in terms of capacity, hygiene, and collective responsibility that are set out below.
The current study mode at TBS in Barcelona is a face-to-face format, with students on campus but with reduced capacity and adjusted to those indicated by the authorities. In the same way, if a positive case or risk of contagion appears, the pertinent isolation measures can be taken to switch to a hybrid format if necessary.
At all times, both students and members of the staff and faculty must wear an FPP2 mask in the TBS facilities, as well as the prohibition of eating and drinking within the classes to avoid contagion.
Such steps are taken to ensure the safety and well-being of our TBS community, as well as to show the school’s commitment to preventing expansion.

What are the preventive measures against the virus?
- Wear a face mask.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water or with alcoholic solutions, especially after direct contact with sick people.
- Avoid close contact with people who show signs of a respiratory condition, such as a cough or sneeze.
- Keep a distance of approximately two meters with people with symptoms of acute respiratory infection.
- Cover your mouth and nose with disposable tissues or the inside of your elbow when you cough or sneeze, and wash your hands right away.
- Avoid sharing food or utensils (cutlery, glasses, napkins, handkerchiefs …) and other objects without cleaning them properly.

In case of symptoms, citizens are asked to call 061 first to avoid possible infections and not to saturate the health centers.

Am I medically covered in case of infection?
It seems that some health insurances do not cover students if they get the virus abroad. We recommend that you verify this information with your insurance, as it may be an important issue to consider if you decide to stay abroad or return to your country of origin.
