We turn to you with the information regarding new conditions for studying at universities. The current anti-epidemic conditions allow, with effect from 10th May 2021, personal participation of students in practical teaching and training, individual consultations (in the format of one student and one academic staff) and examinations, with a distance of at least 1.5 metres between individuals. The number of people in practical classes and exams is no longer limited.
Since the semester has already ended, and the examination period is underway, contact teaching will not be renewed. However, for some subjects where contact teaching is essential, teaching may take place, such as in a laboratory or in the field. However, participation will mostly be voluntary, and you will be informed by your teacher about any such contact teaching.
To be able to participate in person in the above activities, the person concerned must comply with the hygiene regulations in force at that time and the requirements defined by the CZU internal regulations. At present, the participant must prove that he or she
- a) underwent a negative RT-PCR test for the presence of SARS-CoV-2 virus no later than 7 days ago, or
- b) underwent the POC test for SARS CoV-2 antigen with a negative result no later than 72 hours ago, or
- c) has a certificate issued by the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic on the vaccination carried out, observing a period of at least 14 days from the application of the second dose or the first dose (for a single-dose scheme), or
- d) has undergone laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 disease (unless more than 90 days have elapsed since the first positive POC antigen test for SARS CoV-2 or RT-PCR test for SARS-CoV-2).
The fulfilment of the condition of the negative test is also possible by the employer´s confirmation of undergoing (no later than 72 hours ago) a test to determine the presence of SARS-CoV-2 virus antigen, which is intended for self-testing or approved by the Ministry of Health for use by a lay person, with a negative result. Of course, the results of tests performed by health care providers shall be accepted, which you can obtain yourself in advance.
To ensure the testing, you can use the testing centre on the CZU campus. Due to the capacity of the centre and due to its use by university staff, it is necessary to use the reservation system (HERE), to secure a date that meets the set deadlines in relation to the date of teaching or examination. In this context, we would like to point out that from 17th May to 4th June the capacity of the testing centre can be almost completely utilized by students participating in state final examinations.
Dear students, thank you for your understanding of the current conditions and I wish you much success in your studies and in passing the exams.

An examination may be realised in the following basic forms:
Full-time form (with personal participation of the examinee at the CZU)
The examination can be verbal, written, practical or combined. The written examination may also have the form of an electronic test.
The full-time form of the examination is possible only if the valid anti-epidemic measures defined by the Government allow it; it is always necessary to respect the conditions specified in these measures. Currently, the full-time form of the exam is possible only in the presence of a maximum of 10 people.
Distance form (without the personal presence of the examinee at the CZU)
Distance testing can be performed mainly with tools that are supported by the university. These are the following:
- Microsoft Teams (verbal distance testing, colloquium),
- LMS Moodle (for tests, written verification of study results).
In justified cases, other tools can be used, such as ZOOM. Distance forms of verification of study results are sufficient, even if they differ in their character from the traditional full-time form.
