Change in Measures for Staying at the Premises of the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry and the Faculty Hospital from March 14, 2022
Based on extraordinary measure of the Ministry of Health of the CR, measures related to wearing respirators in interior spaces change from 14/3/2022. In connection with this, employers’ obligation to provide employees with respirators changes as well, namely:
- Employees, students or any other persons are not obliged to wear respirators at the premises of UP from March 14, 2022. However, the rector of Palacky University recommends to use respirators in cases when there are more than 20 people at the same time and place (typically lectures, gatherings, meetings of the UP bodies, staff meetings, trainings, etc.).
However, during stay in interior spaces of health-care facilities and social service facilities, the duty of using a respirator continues to apply. Respirators also have to be used in public transport.
- With effect from March 14, 2022, the obligation of Palacky University as an employer to provide its employees with respirators in sufficient number for each shift, as determined in extraordinary measure, terminates.
- With reference to abolishing the obligation of preventive testing at FNOL, preventive testing is not required for the Faculty students from March 14, 2022 either.
- In summer semester 2021/2022, absence from classes due to health reasons related to Covid-19 does not need to be compensated. However, it is necessary to inform a relevant teacher or a secretary of a department about this fact. For students who are interested in it, classes can be compensated if the given department, or a responsible academic worker, agrees to do so.
