Extraordinary and protective measures of the Ministry of Health


The Task Force of the Faculty of Sciences, Charles University, adopted the following resolution on 14th September 2021

(posted to the website on 15th September 2021, 10:20)

 

In response to the development of the epidemic situation, with regard to the current Ministry of Health measures, and in order to clarify the current obligations to be observed by the Faculty students, employees and visitors, the Task Force of the Faculty of Sciences, Charles University (the “Faculty”) adopted the following resolution in a correspondence meeting on 14 September 2021:

I.

Respiratory protection

The presence of employees, students and other persons in the Faculty’s interiors is subject to having one’s airways covered by a respirator with at least 94% efficiency (i.e., e.g., class FFP2 or KN95).

This obligation does not apply to:

  1. teachers during instruction,
  2. students during instruction, provided that they are seated at desks and maintain distances of at least 1.5 metres between them (if the distances cannot be maintained, the persons must not remove their respiratory protection), 
  3. students during physical education classes/teaching practice,
  4. examinees and examiners during examination, provided that all the persons maintain distances of at least 1.5 metres,
  5. students and employees while eating and drinking,
  6. persons who prove that their health does not allow them to wear respiratory protection.

 

II.

Organisation of instruction; presence on the Faculty premises

Presence instruction, examination and credit sessions, and student registration procedures (hereinafter “instruction”) are permitted for all students, regardless of their year or stage of study. Neither students nor employees are obligated to take preventive tests when entering the Faculty buildings (with the exceptions specified below).

All persons present on the premises of the Faculty and during Faculty activities involving personal presence must be free from the clinical symptoms of Covid-19.

If ordered to self-isolate, students will be allowed to deliver on their academic obligations in a remote manner only when the requirements for the specific subject permit this and subject to the approval of the teacher of the subject; in the event of state final examination, state doctoral examination, and dissertation thesis defence, subject to the approval of the Chair of the examination panel. 

If the disease is confirmed and when the academic obligations cannot be delivered remotely, the student is excused from the set date by the teacher or the Chair of the examination panel. In cases such as this, it is necessary to prove that one is sick or has been ordered to self-isolate with a medical certificate (a scan of the medical certificate sent by the Faculty mail is acceptable).

 

Access to Faculty buildings after returning from abroad

The presence of employees at workplaces and students’ participation in instruction (including field exercises, field trips, etc.) after returning from abroad where they stayed for more than 12 hours (of for more than 24 hours in neighbouring countries) is only possible subject to the satisfaction of the requirements defined by the Protective Measure regarding the crossing of the national border and the current version of the Notification of the Ministry of Health issuing a List of Countries, or their Parts, with a Low, Medium and High Risk of COVID-19 Transmission. 

The observance of the requirements defined by the Protective Measure regarding the crossing of the national border is to be demonstrated using a duly completed solemn declaration, which employees shall submit to their senior employees and students to the Student Registry. The solemn declaration must include evidence of testing, recovery from the disease, or completed vaccination where personal presence is subject to such requirements.

If an employee fails to produce the solemn declaration, they cannot be allowed to their workplace. If a student fails to produce the solemn declaration, they cannot be allowed to receive instruction.

Each individual employee and/or student is responsible for observing the requirements for presence at the Faculty, the duty of notification vis-à-vis the Faculty, and the requirements applicable for returning from specific countries. Please check the currently applicable measures of the Ministry of Health and any amendments thereto when returning from trips abroad.

If ordered to self-isolate after returning from abroad, employees will be allowed to work remotely. If the work cannot be done from home or if the employee disagrees, this constitutes obstacles on the employee’s part without a right to salary compensation. When returning from a business trip abroad, the obstacles are on the employer’s part and the right to salary compensation applies.

 

 III.

Presence at graduation and matriculation ceremonies in the Karolinum; operation of field stations; organisation of training events

The presence at the matriculation and graduation ceremonies in the Karolinum, the accommodation in field stations and the participation in a congress or a training event organised by the Faculty or held in presence form in the Faculty’s interiors is subject to all of those in attendance producing:
