The university traffic-light system

On 2 September a traffic-light rating system was introduced at MU, its rating is determined by the MU Crisis Board. Currently, it has RED LIGHT rating. University faculties, institutes, and offices may declare a higher alert level than the university-wide level or introduce stricter rules than elsewhere at the university. Follow the websites of individual faculties and the color-coded signs hanging on the exteriors of MU buildings.
