In view of the threat of the spread of COVID-19 and the decision by the Government of the Republic of Lithuania to declare quarantine, seeking to protect the health of community members, the coronavirus prevention task force has decided that all the activities at the University, as far as possible, are to be continued remotely until 29 November.
If the performance of functions, depending on their nature, is difficult, it is recommended to organise the work in a partially remote manner — shifts (in groups of employees that are fixed and members of which do not mix with other groups’ members). The recommended duration of such shifts is at least a week.
Additionally, people included in a risk group (i.e. persons with chronic or cancer diseases, etc.) are also not recommended to be physically present at their workplace. Moreover, individuals exhibiting symptoms characteristic to the illness (e.g. fever, cough, difficulty breathing, etc.) are prohibited from being at the workplace.
All events, meetings and gatherings at the University must be held only remotely, postponed or cancelled.
All other rules for work organisation and visitor servicing at Vilnius University remain in force.
