About gatherings during the pandemia
We were notified that students have planned to have gatherings or parties. Note, that all gatherings of over 10 people INDOORS OR OUTDOORS are currently forbidden under the decision of Regional State Administrative Agency. If you organise or take part in such gatherings you are breaking the law and have to face the consequences. Not following the given instructions concerning COVID-19 restrictions is highly irresponsible and immature. Exchange students, please note that these restrictions do apply also after the 10-day self isolation period.
The restrictions does not concern teaching. Teaching can be organized in larger groups, as long as the safety measures are taken care of. These guidelines have been approved by the authorities.
