Attendance at classes is not conditioned by proving the implemented vaccination, negative test or past COVID-19 disease. Students and staff must have airways covered in common areas with a protective device (respirator) of category FFP2 (or KN95) and higher. However, it is strongly recommended to wear respirators even during lectures.

When participating in graduations or other academic ceremonies, it is necessary to provide confirmation of completed vaccination against COVID-19, or a valid test or that you already had COVID-19 (see When and how do I have to prove that I am non-infectious?).

Persons who meet the following rules are considered COVID-19 NEGATIVE:

  • the person has undergone, for a maximum of 7 days, an RT-PCR test for the presence of SARS-CoV-2 virus with a negative result, or
  • the person has passed a POC test for SARS CoV-2 antigen with a negative result no later than 72 hours ago, or
  • the person has been vaccinated against COVID-19 and this fact is supported by a national vaccination certificate or a certificate issued in accordance with the European Union Regulation on the EU COVID digital certificate, provided that at least 14 days have elapsed since the completed vaccination schedule, or
  • the person has undergone laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 disease, the isolation period has expired according to the valid emergency measure of the Ministry of Health and from the first positive rapid antigen test (RAT) for the presence of SARS-CoV-2 virus or RT-PCR test for SARS-CoV virus -2 no more than 180 days have elapsed, or
  • the person undergoes a rapid antigen test (RAT) on the spot to determine the presence of SARS-CoV-2 virus antigen for self-testing (use by a lay person) with a negative result; the same applies if a person proves on the spot that he or she has undergone a rapid antigen test under the supervision of a healthcare professional via an online service no later than 24 hours ago and proves passing this test and its negative result by confirmation from the health service provider.

Yes, on the basis of current rules, it is necessary to have an effective respiratory protective device (respirator) of category FFP2 (or KN95) and higher in the internal common areas of all CTU buildings, with the exceptions mentioned.

However, it is strongly recommended to wear respirators even during lectures and students are asked to maintain the recommended distance of at least 1.5 meters between persons.
