University of Warsaw update on the current situation for partners 12.03.2020

Dear Partner,

 With this email, we would like to provide you with up-to-date information about the current situation regarding measures undertaken to prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

A special task force has been established at the University of Warsaw to asses the situation and implement the most appropriate measures.

 In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 among the University of Warsaw community, the Rector of the University of Warsaw issued an order stating the following:

 ·         Lectures and classes for students and PhD students are cancelled until April 14th, 2020, with the exception of on-line courses. On-line courses are to be conducted as planned.

 ·         Some of the regular courses will be conducted on-line starting from March 23rd, 2020.  The list of courses that will be conducted on-line will be available by March 20th, 2020. Mobility coordinators and lecturers will keep the students updated on the situation.

  • All open events, e.g. conferences, symposiums, open lectures, cultural events, etc. organized at the University of Warsaw between March 11th, 2020 and April 30th, 2020 are cancelled.
  • A ban on visits by all guests has been introduced at all University of Warsaw Dormitories and Guest Houses.
  • All students and staff are required to  immediately inform the University of Warsaw about a suspected Coronavirus – caused disease or the fact of being quarantined. In such an event all international exchange students are asked to contact the International Relations Office by email.

At this point there are no plans to extend the duration of the academic year.

 We are keeping the students updated on the situation as well as reminding them of the preventive measures. They are strongly encouraged to contact us with all questions as the International Relations Office is open for business.

Following the recommendations of the Polish Ministry of Health and the Chief Sanitary Inspectorate we are discouraging students from any travel at this time.
