Information on operation restrictions at the USB from 12. 4. 2021

Dear colleagues and students,

this document summarises restrictions with regard to USB operations that are currently in effect on the basis of the resolution of the Government of the Czech Republic No. 353 from 6 April 2021 on the extraordinary measures of the Ministry of Health. Most of the current rules remain unchanged, changes in previously announced rules are highlighted in bold.

The physical presence of students and participants in courses of lifelong learning at instruction remains prohibited with exemptions outlined below. Furthermore, language exams organised for the public cannot take place except for professional qualification exams and other exams, the completion of which is a condition set by legislation for the performance of a certain activity. Instruction will take place in the distance format under a regime set by faculties.

The following in-person educational activities are permitted:

  • the presence at exams and other forms of verifying study results under the condition of up to 10 persons in attendance at the same time in the same room;
  • individual consultations and other activities related to preparing graduation theses;
  • clinical and practical instruction and training of students of healthcare degree programmes;
  • practical pedagogical instruction and practical training of students in kindergartens, primary and secondary schools or facilities for the exercise of institutional education and secured care;
  • practical instruction and training under Act No. 95/2004, on Requirements for Acquisition of Recognition of Professional Competence to Practise the Profession of a Physician, Dentist and Pharmacist, and under Act No 96/2004, on Paramedical Professions;
  • practical preparation for the performance of a regulated profession of a social worker under Act No. 108/2006, on Social Services;
  • practical training of students where the operation of corresponding places of work with respect to the pandemic situation allows it;
  • admission exams under the condition of up to 20 persons in attendance.


Accommodation at dormitories and visits to the Academic Library for the purposes of receiving or returning study literature is organised according to the current regime outlined in the corresponding decisions of the D&R Director and the AL USB Director.

Please, also respect ordinances and recommendations that are currently in effect concerning respiratory tract protection, the use of disinfectants, etc. The presence and stay in buildings of the USB without respiratory tract protective equipment (nose, mouth) that is understood as a respirator or similar means of protection in compliance with corresponding standards (FFP2, KN 95) is prohibited. The measure of the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic has become stricter concerning the matter, therefore, face masks or similar means of protection meeting the ČSN EN 14683+AC standard will not be deemed sufficient from 12 April. Educational activities, the nature of which does not allow for the use of protective equipment (in particular physical education, singing, playing wind instruments), may constitute an exemption. In cases in which it is necessary that the student sees the mouth of the educator during instruction, it is possible for the educator to use a face shield as protective equipment for respiratory tract protection under the condition that the educator maintains a distance of at least 2 meters from students.

The abovementioned is currently announced with effect until further notice (highlighted changes shall take effect from 12 April). In the case that the circumstances change, along with the binding regulations that the USB must follow, we shall inform you again.
