Sunday 14 November 2021, 15:08

At its Friday meeting, the Crisis Council of Palacký University Olomouc strongly urged university students and employees to faithfully follow government measures and hygienic recommendations and requirements. There have been no fundamental changes regarding the current valid regime at UP premises; nevertheless, it is important to fully maintain the rules already in place. The main things are to use defined respiratory protection in all university spaces including dormitories and dining halls, and provide proof of being virus-free at the dorms.

The Crisis Council warns that not maintaining the government measures, or any circumvention of them whatsoever, can result not only in increasing the risk of infection and threats upon the health of yourself and others, in some cases there can even be criminal repercussions for the negligent individual.

Information on the current valid conditions at UP premises can be found on the webpage www.upol.cz/en/covid-19/; current Czech Ministry of Health information on the coronavirus can be found here; and all important Czech Government information on the coronavirus epidemic can be found on this page.

At the same time, the UP Crisis Council would like to remind everyone that it continues to be in the best interests of all of us to have maximum mutual consideration and behave preventively. This is why we will continue to maintain the 5 Rules (respirators, hand sanitizer, maintaining safe distance, being sensible, respect); to not underestimate the symptoms of respiratory illness; to not increase risk for those around us; to get vaccinated, if possible; and if it is not possible, to get regularly tested.

This appeal in conjunction with the current epidemic situation is also being published by the Student Chamber of the UP Academic Senate.
