World Health Organization has declared the infections COVID-19 caused by SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus a pandemic, therefore the University has decided to preventively halt the study process for the upcoming 14 days starting from 13 of March until 27 of March with a possibility to extend the deadline if needed. Students and employees should study remotely via on-line measures - lectures and seminars will not be happening in the University's classes.

VU employees should also work remotely. If there is no possibility to work at home, follow all recommended hygiene requirements.

Work at laboratories should happen only in the case of a huge material or scientific damage if cancelled.

Also, all planned work trips to foreign countries will be cancelled. Please be cautious and do not plan trips to China, Italy, Spain, France, Germany, South Korea, Iran, Singapore, Japan and other possible areas of the outbreak.

Trips of extreme importance will only be allowed with the permission of the head of faculty/department. If you have recently come back from such a trip, a quarantine of 14 days is mandatory.

Students coming back from ERASMUS+ should quarantine themselves safely at places without shared spaces, therefore dormitories are unsuitable to quarantine yourselves.

All events during this period should be postponed, happen on-line or, if that is not possible, cancelled.
