For UP students Accommodation and dining

The first few days of the summer semester will see several rolling changes to the government-issued restrictions for dormitory living in conjunction with the Covid-19 epidemic.

up to and including 14 February 2022

Up to and including Monday, 14 February, the regime in place at dormitories follows the Czech Ministry of Health regulation of 18 November 2021, which allows into the dormitories only those persons who provide a valid Covid vaccination certificate, proof of having undergone Covid-19 (within the last 180 days), a negative RT-PCR test within the last 72 hours, or a negative antigen test within the last 24 hours administered by a healthcare professional. The frequency of providing proof of these conditions every 7 days is unchanged. “Self-tests”, i.e. quick antigen tests intended for laypersons to determine the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, are not accepted as proof.

15–18 February

These rules will remain in effect for the next four days – i.e. until midnight, Friday 18 February – but the validity period for vaccinations will have changed. If the student when entering the dorm provides proof of being vaccinated, it is necessary that the last vaccination dose was given less than 270 days previously, or that the person was already given a third vaccination dose (booster). More details can be found in the Czech Ministry of Health measure of 26 January 2022, paragraph 8.

starting 19 February

As of midnight, 18 February, the necessity of providing proof of not being infectious will be abolished, and students will not have to provide any such proof at the dormitories.

Respiratory protection

The requirement to use respiratory protection in interior spaces of universities, including dormitories, however, will remain in place. More information can be found in the Czech Ministry of Health extraordinary measure of 27 October 2021 and its amendment of 10 November 2021 (in Czech).
