Further to the Special Measure of the Ministry of Health, the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague will operate as follows with effect from 1 July 2021:
Returning from abroad:
All AMU employees and students returning from the territories that are on the list of countries with a medium and/or higher risk of COVID-19 occurrence (a stay exceeding 12 hours in the last 14 days, or 24 hours if the countries are neighbours) shall:
a) Inform AMU about this, and
b) Produce a certificate of a negative antigen test result from a healthcare service provider from within the last 48 hours (if returning from the territories that are on the list of countries with a medium risk or returning by means of mass transportation), or a negative PCR test result from within the last 72 hours (if returning from the territories that are on the list of countries with medium and/or higher risk).
An employee shall demonstrate meeting the above obligations to their senior employee and a student shall demonstrate it to their teacher when arriving at AMU. Presence at a workplace or during instruction or examination is not allowed without producing a negative test result. Individual cases may be addressed by the heads of departments and sections or their deputies in their absence.
If an employee is sent to a country with a medium or higher risk of occurrence of COVID-19 on a business trip, AMU shall reimburse the cost of the test to determine the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus prior to entering the Czech territory under the relevant measures of the Ministry of Health to the employees subsequently in addition to the business trip settlement.
Employees and students who have been fully vaccinated more than 14 days ago (to be demonstrated by the national certificate of completed vaccination) and employees and students who suffered from COVID-19 during the past 180 days (to be demonstrated by a physician’s certificate or a digital COVID certificate; not by a solemn declaration) are free from the obligation to produce a test result certificate.
The Rectors asks employees and students to carefully consider travelling to countries with greater than medium rate of risk.
A list of the countries and their ranking by rate of risk is available on the Ministry of Health website.
Protection of airways:
The duty of using means of protecting airways (nose, mouth) such as a respiratory mask or a similar device (such as FFP2, KN 95, etc.) has to be observed during one’s stay at school (in the interior areas and in all other publicly accessible areas where at least two persons are present at a distance of less than two metres in the same place and at the same time, unless such persons are exclusively the members of one household).
This duty does not apply to:
When on the premises of the school, everybody shall wash and sanitise their hands, and maintain social distance of at least 1.5 metres.
Detailed information regarding the operation of the individual Faculties is available on their respective websites.
