FAQ General Measures

What are the current measures related to COVID-19?

There are still plenty of restrictions and limitations to the normal function of society in Czechia. You can find them via the official websites. Nevertheless, the general day-to-day activities are not banned any longer. There are still some limits in regards e.g. the capacity of service, gatherings and such. The main restrictions are imposed on the hygienic measures. You should adopt the general hygienic measures as a new normal of your day-to-day routines.

Moreover, people are ordered to wear a face mask (FFP2 respirators or equivalent) anywhere indoors in public spaces including mass transportation and during mass activities or gatherings outdoors where they cannot guarantee themselves self-distancing to other people.

The usage of majority services is conditioned by the proof of non-infectivity that is in the majority of cases understand as:

1. proof of vaccination (at least 14 days after the complete vaccination);
2. proof of recovery from COVID illness (up to 180 days from the first negative test result);
3. proof of negative test - not older than 7 days for PCR tests; not older than 3 days for Antigen tests.

Please note, you will also need one of these proofs when you want to visit some of our University facilities.
