Below you can find summarized current measures.

Teaching and exams

For exams, state exams, academic ceremonies, entrance exams, and life-long learning courses, if there are more than 20 persons in attendance at any one moment, then the following go into effect:

  1. The only persons who may take part are those who are not showing any symptoms of Covid-19 and at the same time can prove/satisfy one of the following conditions:
    • proof of Covid-19 vaccination;
    • proof of having had Covid-19 in the past 180 days;
    • proof of the negative results of an antigen test (administered in the past 72 hours) or PCR test (administered in the past 7 days) from an official testing site;
    • undergoing a preventative antigen test intended for self-testing, on the spot, with a negative result – the option to carry out a self-test at home and provide a sworn statement to prove the result is no longer valid.
  2. The distance from the lecturer(s) must be a minimum of 2 metres.
  3. The maximum capacity for social events held indoors is 1000 people, for concerts, theatre, festivals, etc. it is 3000 visitors (100 % of the total seating capacity can be filled; all spectators must be seated).
  4. The maximum capacity for social events held outdoors is 2000 people, for concerts, theatres, festivals, etc. it is 7000 visitors (at the same time, the presence of participants must not exceed 1 standing participant per 2 m2).
  5. According to the emergency measure, the holding of a mass event with an expected attendance of more than 1 000 persons per day must be notified to the regional sanitary station (Krajská hygienická stanice, KHS) at least 5 days before the date of the event.

Wearing of respirators

According to the current rules (in Czech), one can remove one’s respirator or similar respiratory protection (e.g. nano-masks) in these situations:

  • at exams, if one keeps at least two metres’ distance between individual students and teachers;
  • during classes, if students are sitting at desks (lecturer(s) can also remove their respiratory protection);
  • at work, when there is no one else present but co-workers.

Athletes and people exercising can also remove their respiratory protection, as can persons in swimming pool areas, etc.; choirs when singing and throughout the duration of the event; inside one’s dormitory room; and customers at dining halls and UP Fresh Bistros when consuming food and drinks, if seated.

Please show consideration and mutual respect to your colleagues. Removing respiratory protection is only an option, not a requirement. If a student or employee feels any discomfort regarding the absence of respiratory protection in any of the above situations, we ask for collegial resolution of the situation and mutual agreement.
