Coronavirus information site




The most important element of epidemiological control is vaccination and according to the current information of the UP Operative Crew, a significant number of the citizens of the University of Pécs have the necessary immunity. At the same time, in view of the increased infectivity of the delta variant of the coronavirus, which is already present in Hungary as well, the moderate increase in the number of infections and the experiences of the start of the academic year, the Operative Crew of the University of Pécs defines the rules of mask use from 13 September 2021 until withdrawal in order to create a safe presence education and a safe working environment as follows:

On the premises of the University, it is mandatory to use a surgical mask that constantly covers the mouth and nose in the following cases:

  • in the Clinical Centre in accordance with the relevant legal and internal regulations,
  • during attendance education sessions held indoors (e.g. lectures, seminars, practice), except for the person giving the lecture,
  • in the course of administration with a personal presence,
  • in addition to personal presence, during closed-space meetings and board meetings, provided that safe distancing and/or adequate ventilation of the room cannot be ensured.

It is not mandatory, but it is highly recommended to use a surgical mask that constantly covers the mouth and nose in public spaces, corridors, dormitories, offices or indoor events.

Anyone is entitled to use a surgical mask, a safety mask or a mask made of textile or other materials, and no one can be prohibited from using the mask.

This decision does not apply to public education institutions (e.g. elementary and secondary schools) of the University, where the issue is settled in accordance with the guidelines provided by the Ministry of Human Capacities.
