Key points of the status orange:

Teaching rooms may be used at a maximum of 50 per cent of standard capacity. Exceptions for excursions, laboratory and other practical exercises remain in force.
  • Exams are allowed in presence.

This can be a proof of vaccination (valid from the 22nd day after the first injection), a negative antigen test (not older than 48 hours), a negative PCR test (not older than 72 hours), a medical certificate confirming you have overcome the disease within the last six months, a Covid-19 antibodies detection test (not older than three months) or a quarantine notification in consequence of an infection (not older than six months).
