Dear Members of the academic community,
Following the update of the preventive measures against COVID-19 reflecting the governmental measures, the measures at LF MU have been changed with effect from 23rd November 2021.
In order to protect the health of all FM MU staff and students, testing of unvaccinated persons is required.
FM MU management has negotiated with clinical teaching sites to test unvaccinated employees and students prior to entering the tuition. RT-PCR tests or Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) performed by a healthcare provider (antigen test performed by a healthcare professional) will be accepted. Self-test cannot be applied.
A major change with effect from 23rd November is the acceptance of the RAT test carried out in a healthcare facility, with a validity period of 7 days.
Following the update of the governmental measures effective from 23rd November, it is now possible for employees of the FM MU, who do not appear at premises of healthcare facility at any time during their work, to meet the preventive conditions also by rapid antigen test (RAT) designated for self-testing at the workplace. Testing of all employees is also possible at the testing site at the University Hospital Brno, (designated time from 7:00 to 8:00, employees arrive at the central register, where they identify themselves with an employee ID/ITIC as the proof of employment with the FM MU.)
Testing for employees is carried out at the Brno University Hospital and is free of charge for employees, the payment will be made from the budget of the employee's workplace.
Testing of students will be provided free of charge in the FNB, DN, and Obstetric Hospital Obilní trh. Specific procedures for RAT testing will be available on the med.muni.cz website and sent to students from the study department.
When utilizing RAT testing at these medical facilities, it is recommended that testing will be done well in advance of the start of classes to avoid late arrival to tuition. Employees are required to enter the information about meeting the preventive requirements into the system INET and students are required to enter the information into the IS MU.
In the event of any shift in the generally applicable measures, which we are currently not aware of, we will reflect it on a faculty level.”
