Dear colleagues and students,

I would like to inform you of a further relaxation of the restrictive measures in the area of higher education following on from the previous extraordinary measures imposed by the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic.

1) The Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic continues to require that when studying at a higher education institution pursuant to Act No. 111/1998 Coll., on higher education institutions, students’ personal presence shall be permitted subject to the condition that at most 15 students be present in a group. This restriction does not apply to practical instruction or work experience.

A student may participate in activity at a higher education institution only if the following conditions are met:

2) Students may attend and move about at the higher education institution within the scope of instruction, examination or other activity without respiratory protective equipment for the nose and mouth such as a respirator, veil, face mask, scarf or other equipment which hinders the spread of droplets, provided they maintain a distance of at least 1.5 m and provided there are at most 15 persons in the room.

The ban on movement and attendance without respiratory protective equipment shall not apply to the presentation of an authored work (including the creation and production of an audio-visual work) or to an artistic performance (e.g. a theatrical, dance or musical performance), provided that:

The faculty shall ensure compliance with these conditions.

See Extraordinary Measure of the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic dated 19 May 2020, file no. MZDR 20588/2020-2/MIN/KAN effective from 25 May 2020 until further notice.

I would also like to draw your attention to the current Decree of the Rector No. 4/2020, which sets out special rules for studies and for the activities of academic bodies at the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague during the 2020 calendar year, and I recommend following current developments of the extraordinary measures imposed by the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic.
