If you were in the risky contact with a Covid-19 positive person:
Please go into voluntary quarantine. If you were infected this will prevent further transmissions of the disease. Inform your GP about the risky contact by phone. He will issue you a request form for an RT-PCR test on COVID-19.
If you tested positive for Covid-19:
You need to follow isolation for 7 days from the positive test. You can end your isolation after 7 days from the sampling of the first positive test performed by a healthcare professional if in the last 2 days no symptoms occurred; otherwise, the isolation prolongs for the whole time of having symptoms plus 2 days without them. Isolation cannot be terminated by undertaking a PCR test, its minimum length is 7 days.
Here you can find all testing points in Prague.
The teaching is currently carried out in a hybrid mode: the courses are taught in person but students can for a limited time attend the courses online if they are unable to join in person.
