Lemma 34.4.7. Let $\mathit{Sch}_{\acute{e}tale}$ be a big étale site as in Definition 34.4.6. Let $T \in \mathop{\mathrm{Ob}}\nolimits (\mathit{Sch}_{\acute{e}tale})$. Let $\{ T_ i \to T\} _{i \in I}$ be an arbitrary étale covering of $T$.

There exists a covering $\{ U_ j \to T\} _{j \in J}$ of $T$ in the site $\mathit{Sch}_{\acute{e}tale}$ which refines $\{ T_ i \to T\} _{i \in I}$.

If $\{ T_ i \to T\} _{i \in I}$ is a standard étale covering, then it is tautologically equivalent to a covering in $\mathit{Sch}_{\acute{e}tale}$.

If $\{ T_ i \to T\} _{i \in I}$ is a Zariski covering, then it is tautologically equivalent to a covering in $\mathit{Sch}_{\acute{e}tale}$.
