Dean's Letter of FM MU from 18th February 2022

Information from the Dean of the FM MU, prof. MUDr. Martin Repko, Ph.D. from 18th February about the current situation.

18 Feb 2022

Dear Members of the academic community,

Following the change in governmental measures against COVID-19, the FM MU Measure No. 10/2021, which regulates the principles of prevention of spread of COVID-19 at the FM MU, is being amended with effect from 21st February 2022.

As of Monday, 21st February, the obligation to test employees in the workplace will end, but the obligation to report a positive test for COVID-19 will remain.

Student testing will be conducted from Monday, 21st February as follows:

Students participating in theory lessons do not need to provide proof of completion of O-N-T, regardless of the location of the class.

Students participating in clinical lessons or professional practice must document O-N-T in one of the following ways:

  • A certificate of completion of a vaccination schedule that is no older than 270 days,
  • a certificate of administration of a booster dose,
  • a certificate of suffering COVID-19 within the last 180 days,
  • RT-PCR test or rapid antigen test (RAT) under the conditions specified in the above Measure. Self-testing is not accepted.

I hereby urge all students to also pay attention to the currently applicable measures of the particular health care provider/health care facility (university hospitals) to which they are attending for training or practice. If the health service provider/health facility's measures are stricter, they take precedence over the faculty measures.

The management of FM MU has negotiated with UH Brno for testing of students prior to entering clinical lessons. Testing of students will be provided free of charge in the main building of UH Brno (Bohunice workplace). The testing sites at the Children's Hospital and the Maternity Hospital are not intended for FM MU students. It is recommended to undergo testing well in advance of the start of classes to avoid late arrival to classes.

Kind Regards,
prof. MUDr. Martin Repko, Ph.D.
Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, Masaryk University​
