Information on operation restrictions at the USB from 15. 2. 2021

This ordinance of the USB management (sent on 12th February, 2021) is in accordance with the resolution of the government No. 129 from February 14, 2021.

Dear colleagues and students,

due to the termination of the state of emergency and the effect of the current resolutions of the Government of the Czech Republic that have been limiting the operation of higher education institutions, it is now up to the University of South Bohemia to decide how to deal with the situation. Given the circumstances of the continuing spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, we think that it is necessary to maintain the current restrictions of operations, albeit we are not obliged to do so under resolutions of the Government. Therefore, with effect as of 15 February 2021, the beginning of the period of instruction of the SS 2020/21, the following remains in effect:

The personal presence of students and participants of lifelong learning courses at instruction remains prohibited with the exception of exceptions outlined below. Instruction will take place in a 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, including exams under lifelong learning programmes and exams organised by BC USB and GC USB under the condition of up to 10 persons in attendance at the same time in the same room and while maintaining 2m distance between people
  • individual consultations and other activities related to preparing graduation theses
  • practical training of students where the operation of corresponding places of work with respect to the pandemic situation allows it
  • practical instruction in the context of executing health-oriented degree programmes

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 Director of the AL USB.

Please, respect ordinances and recommendations concerning the protection of the respiratory tract, the use of disinfectants etc., that are currently in effect as well.

The abovementioned is currently announced with effect until further notice. In the case that the circumstances change, along with the binding regulations that the USB must follow, we will inform you again.

We would like to wish you the best for the new semester.
