In accordance with the amendments to the government Ordinance on the method of meeting the condition of RTV (recovery, vaccination and testing) to curb the spread of SARS-CoV-2 virus infections changes have been introduced for educational institutions, especially in proving compliance with condition T. From 1 November, testing is mandatory for employees every 48 hours, and students must be tested twice a week at equal intervals. It is also mandatory to wear masks, even if all persons meet the RV requirements. All other preventive measures (hand disinfection, ventilation…) must also be considered.

R - Recovered

The recovery condition may be proved in two ways:

  • a certificate of a positive PCR test result that is older than 10 days but not older than 6 months;

V – Vaccinated

The vaccination condition may be proved by means of:

  • an EU Digital COVID Certificate in digital or paper format and with a QR code (EU DCC);
  • a digital COVID certificate of a third country in digital or paper format with a QR code, which must contain at least the same data as the EU DCC and be issued in English by a competent health authority of the third country (DCC of a third country).

The certificate must attest that the person has received:

  • the second dose of the Comirnaty vaccine produced by Biontech/Pfizer, the Spikevax vaccine (COVID-19 Vaccine) produced by Moderna, the Sputnik V vaccine produced by Russia’s Gamaleya National Centre of Epidemiology and Microbiology, the CoronaVac vaccine produced by Sinovac Biotech, the COVID-19 Vaccine produced by Sinopharm, the Vaxzevria vaccine (COVID-19 Vaccine) produced by AstraZeneca, or the Covishield vaccine produced by the Serum Institute of India/AstraZeneca or a combination of two different vaccines under this point;*
  • the first dose of the COVID-19 Vaccine Janssen by Johnson and Johnson/Janssen-Cilag.

For persons who can demonstrate recovery with one of the listed pieces of evidence and have been vaccinated with one of the listed vaccines within the period of up to 180 days since receiving a positive PCR test or since the onset of symptoms, one dose is sufficient. The status of a vaccinated person applies as of the date of vaccination.

T - Tested

The tested condition for students and employees may be proved by means of:

  • self-testing (employees every 48 hours, students twice a week at equal intervals);
  • rapid HAG testing (employees every 48 hours, students twice a week at equal intervals).

Students receive free self-testing packs at the pharmacy. Employees receive free self-testing packs at work.
