Other important information related to coronavirus

Is it necessary to wear face-covering?

From May 25, face-covering is necessary only if you are:

  • in all interiors of buildings, other than the place of residence,
  • in public transport,
  • in all other places where there are at least two persons at a distance of less than 2 meters, unless they are exclusively household members

Is it true that I cannot go shopping between 8 am and 10 am?

  • NO, from May 26, this time reserved for seniors in shops and pharmacies has been cancelled, so you can go shopping whenever you want.

Who can help me if the whole situation is "too much" and I need help?

We know that the current situation may be very stressful, and mental health is as important as the physical one. We, therefore, reached out to the Department of Psychology, asking if some of the teachers/psychologists would be able to provide help to international students if needed, and they agreed. If someone feels like they need to talk to a psychologist, write an email to jana.nesvadbova@econ.muni.cz and she will put you in touch. Consultations are available in English, German, Spanish, and Czech/Slovak.

On this link, you can find some psychological recommendations which we received from the Faculty of Medicine:
