In conjunction with further relaxations of Czech government anti-coronavirus measures and the downshift to the third classification level of the anti-epidemic system “PES”, there will also be further relaxations in the regime at UP. First-year classes of students can also return to physical classes and the UP Library will also partly resume its services.

The return of first-year students to classrooms will be possible as of Monday, 7 December, max. 20 students to a group. Lab, experimental, and art classes in groups up to 20 students will be possible for students of all years. More detailed information regarding the possible realisation of in-person seminars will be provided to you by your home faculty. Obviously, exceptions and rules already in place will still be valid, such as clinical and practical lessons for students in healthcare fields, doctoral students, individual consultations, etc. Details are available via an overview on the UP web and in a detailed Czech Ministry of Health table for the regime at schools under the new anti-epidemic “PES” system.

Students for whom the new exceptions above apply can return to the dormitories as of 7 December. Details are available in the complete government edict (in Czech).

And the UP Library will partly renew its services as of Thursday, 3 December. The Armoury and faculty branch libraries will reopen for clients in order to serve them as regards essential borrowing and return of books, copying, scanning, and printing. The “lending windows” will be closed. For quick return of books, clients should use the “biblioboxes” set up for that purpose. For hygienic reasons, club rooms, periodical rooms, and night study rooms will remain closed, as will study rooms at faculty branches.

More detailed rules about borrowing books and detailed operating hours at the Armoury Main Library and faculty branches can be found on the UP Library webpages.
