On 2 September a traffic-light rating system was introduced at MU. The university currently has a “red 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.
