Information on the test result must be uploaded by employees using the ‘Covid-19 Prevention’ application in INETThe form and the manner of testing will be decided by deans and heads of the individual economic units. Employees will be informed once testing starts.

Testing options will include self-administered tests at the workplace using supplied testing kits, professional testing by health professionals provided by the university at its own collection points, or testing at external collection points. The form of testing is decided by the deans or heads of the individual economic units of MU and the employees are obliged to submit to the type of testing based on the decision of the head of the economic unit.

For a self-administrated tests at the workplace, strict rules will apply for the operation of sampling rooms, where employees will have a selected test available. Economic units will also be able, in justified cases, to issue a self-administrated test to an employee who will be tested outside the MU building.

Regarding the professional testing by health professionals, Masaryk University, in cooperation with the Brno University Hospital, will establish four sampling points for antigen testing for MU employees. They will be located in the Bohunice campus (building B11), at the MU Rector’s Office, and in the Vinařská complex (n. 4). Employees can register for a test using the ‘COVID-19 Prevention’ application in INET. The registration will open on Friday, 12 March. 

Employees can also use the collection centres that fall under the Smart Quarantine system and undergo an antigen or PCR test there.

If a staff member test is positive, he must not go to the workplace, and will either be sent automatically or through his general practitioner for a PCR test and will then follow the appropriate measures to prevent the spread of the virus.

The management of Masaryk University strongly emphasizes that people who have symptoms of COVID-19, such as shortness of breath, fever, dry cough, sudden loss of taste and smell, are prohibited from entering MU premises.
