Coronavirus update: Emergency measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19

12. 3. 2020 -

Mendel University in Brno strives to ensure the health and safety of students and employees. In response to the ongoing dissemination of COVID-19 from 3 March 2020, MENDELU banned all forms of contact teaching and events at the university campus. The aim is to reduce the number of situations that require people to gather in large groups and minimize time spent in close proximity. In accordance with the Ministry of Health's ban on students' personal presence at the university, this situation is valid until further notice.

Newly, the regulation also applies to PhD students. The student canteen, library, study rooms and computer rooms are also closed. 

Students and employees of MENDELU who are currently abroad in areas of new coronavirus infection should follow the information, advice and recommendations that are continuously updated and supplemented on the World Health Organization website (https://www.who.int/health-topics/coronavirus).
