Important information about Coronavirus for students and employees.

The ban on personal presence of students at classes from September 23, 2020 to October 31, 2020

From September 23, 2020, from 0.00 am to October 31, 2020, our university prohibits the personal presence of students at classes. The ban on personal presence of students does not apply to:

  • individual visits to libraries and study rooms;
  • individual consultations;
  • testing in the presence of a maximum of 10 persons;
  • laboratory, experimental or artistic work in the presence of not more than 15 persons;
  • clinical and practical teaching and practice.

Rector's order to restrict teaching from 23. 9. 2020

Coronavirus traffic light

Due to the steps of the Government of the Czech Republic and the methodology used in informing citizens about the current epidemiological situation related to the occurrence of covid19, VSB-TUO also started announcing restrictions for individual parts of the university using “traffic lights”. They will respond to regulations and recommendations from the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, the Regional Public Health Authority of the Moravian Silesian Region, etc. and will use a scale of 0 to 3 to inform about the situation at the given workplaces. The aim is to avoid, as far as possible, a general restriction on the operation of the entire university. The occurrence of the disease at one of the external faculties located outside the campus may not be a reason for the closure of the entire university, and vice versa. For individual “traffic light colours”, the Rector's order also determines the instructions that the students, staff and external visitors to the university buildings should observe.

In addition to the VSB-TUO Coronavirus Traffic Light, this extraordinary measure of the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic is in force, which orders the obligation to wear respiratory protection in all internal areas of the university from 10 September 2020.
