ANNOUNCEMENT FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

URGENT!!!

Dear Students,

PLEASE STAY IN YOUR ACCOMODATION

Do not leave your dormitories or flats with no important reason!

STAY INSIDE, STAY SAFE!

 

 

 

According to recent Polish government regulations  everyone on the territory of Poland is supposed to stay at home and isolate themselves to prevent the spread of the COVID-19.

 

Financial penalties will be imposed on those who gather in public places. They have been increased from 5,000 to 30,000 PLN!

 

We do understand the complexity of the situation which affects the entire humanity throughout the globe. We all need to cooperate, stay reasonable and obey public regulations and restrictions in order to fight this virus and get back to normal again.

 

Take good care of yourselves and people around you.

 

Do not gather in groups and do not go outside unless it is unavoidable and you need to:

-          go to work,

-          go to a grocery shop or to a pharmacy (to get basic food products or medications),

-          have an appointment with a doctor (call them first!)

-          walk the dog.

But,

-          if you need to leave your accommodation, you should go alone or in 2 people maximum,

-          social distancing needs to be preserved to the maximum,

-          public means of transport are limited,

-          social gatherings are strictly forbidden and will be fined.

 

Do not take this risk of being fined by local authorities or expelled from the university.

It doesn’t serve any purpose.

The purpose is to stick together, fight this threat together and stay safe!
