By the decision of prof. Krzysztof Wilde, rector of Gdańsk University of Technology, the suspension of teaching at the university was extended until Sunday, 3 May 2020 inclusive. At the same time, the new Decree of the GUT Rector regulates many other aspects of the university's operation during the epidemic.
Decree of the GUT rector of 8 April 2020, regulates the principles of university functioning in the epidemic state. The most important information from the new Decree concerns the extension of the period of suspension of classes at Gdańsk University of Technology until 3 May 2020 (earlier regulations assumed that classes could be resumed on Wednesday, 15 April).
At the same time, the provisions of the GUT Rector's Circular Letter No. 9/2020 of 17 March 2020, which relate to the further implementation of the teaching program in a remote form, remain in force.
Operation of the university during the pandemic period
The new Decree of the GUT Rector also obliges students, doctoral students and post-graduate students to report electronically or by phone to the dean's office information about a possible deterioration of health and symptoms typical of COVID-19 virus infection.
Also accommodation of new people in student dormitories is suspended and external visitors are banned. Only people who live in the student houses will be allowed into buildings. Students who have already left their places will not be able to return to the dorms. The reading rooms of the GUT Library and the Academic Sport Center facilities will remain closed until further notice.
An important information resulting from the new regulation is the provision regarding the work of the university administration and researchers. During the suspension period, university employees will continue to perform their official duties, and the new regulation also does not limit the possibility of conducting scientific activity (this includes PhD students), provided that it can be conducted in compliance with security measures included in government regulations and guidelines of the Ministry of Health.
