Quarantine accommodation in Šlapanice
9:50: Masaryk University's plan for students returning to the Czech Republic from abroad who have to be in quarantine.
Currently, 11 quarantine rooms are used in Šlapanice, which are intended for foreign students who are staying at MU dormitories but cannot return to their original dormitory rooms because they have to be in quarantine for 14 days. If necessary, this capacity can be slightly increased.
At the same time, a capacity of 10 rooms was reserved for students who did not initially live in MU dormitories but who cannot or do not want to return to their place of residence or previous accommodation due to a coronavirus epidemic.
New measures are in force, including compulsory facemasks in classes
Due to the current epidemiological situation, new measures are in force in the Czech Republic starting Friday 18 September. All students at higher education institutions must wear facemasks in classes, not only in the common areas of schools.
Facemasks are mandatory in common places of MU buildings
The Ministry of Health is responding to the epidemiological situation. As of Thursday, 10 September, it is mandatory to wear facemasks in all indoor places and in the common areas of schools and universities. The nationwide obligation to wear facemasks in public transport continues to apply.
The university remains at the green level of risk
The Crisis Board decided to keep a higher degree of risk for the entire university due to the fact that students and academics from all over the Czech Republic are heading to MU and also due to sporadic cases of infection.
