Updated and binding directives of the chief hygienist of the University Hospital
Arrivals from abroad - Please pay attention to the updated hygienic directives
New information 2020/10/30
Exceptions to the Government Resolution of 12 October 2020 apply to our faculty. Contact practical teaching, internships and examinations are permitted, accommodation in dormitories and meals in the canteen are permitted.
However, it is necessary to strictly adhere to the increased hygienic regime, consistent wearing of face masks, repeated hygiene and disinfection of hands, keeping distances and social distancing.
It is essential to follow the current information on the website of the faculty and the website of the hygienic service, Regional Health Organisation, and to strictly follow the instructions published there. Failure to follow the instructions exposes you to the risk of subsequent penalties.
It is forbidden to attend classes with signs of infectious disease, especially with signs of upper respiratory tract damage, fever, general weakness, etc. Even in this case, however, it is necessary to contact a doctor and initiate adequate treatment with an apology from teaching. Without the doctor's confirmation, the absence will not be excused. It is forbidden to participate in classes while in quarantine imposed by a doctor or Regional Health Organisation.
Contact with a positive person must be reported immediately to the Regional Health Organisation, even retrospectively, and consequently its instructions strictly followed. It is necessary to report this to the teacher or to the secretary of a particular department before teaching. It is not permissible to report this until after attending practical training or other activities, if the information is already available.
If these measures and instructions are not observed, there is a risk of a ban on practical teaching and practice at the University Hospital Hradec Králové by the hospital hygienist.
