The university traffic-light system

On 2 September a traffic-light rating system was introduced at MU. The university currently has a “yellow light” rating, determined by the MU Crisis Board, taking into account the traffic-light for the Brno-City district. 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 colour-coded signs hanging on the exteriors of MU buildings.

Furthermore, pursuant to the Decision of the Rector No. 8/2020 students who have tested positive for COVID-19 or been required to go into quarantine must report their status in the Information SystemPeople with symptoms of infectious viral infections (shortness of breath, fever, dry cough, sudden loss of taste and smell) are prohibited from entering MU buildings.
