Dear Colleagues, Students, Faculty and Staff,

As you have most likely been informed the coronavirus has appeared in several countries in Europe, including Hungary.

The University of Miskolc handles its international students and students coming back from abroad in accordance with its code of conduct. It means that if someone arrives from an area in which there are cases of COVID-19 reported he/she is supervised and confined to his/her home (in this case his/her room in the dorm) as it is regulated by Act 18 of 1998 (VI.3) on the epidemical measures taken for the prevention of the spread of contagious diseases and epidemics.

The most effective form of protection is still the prevention. Therefore we advise you not to travel to a country that is affected by the spread of the infection. You can follow the news and the spread of the disease at https://koronavirus.gov.hu/. We also advise you to consider the necessity of travelling abroad as the virus is known to be spreading.

If it is possible please consider the attendance at mass events and we also like to ask for the reconsideration of the organization of international events at the University of Miskolc. Please follow the procedure detailed in Chancellor Directive Nr. 2/2014 when organizing events at the University of Miskolc.

To date we are not aware of any infections, confirmed or suspected cases at the University of Miskolc. We do not have any buildings, units or floors closed.

The University does everything in its power to prevent the epidemic. We follow all and every orders and guidelines given by the authorities. The cleaning staff takes extra measures to use disinfectants in the washrooms and sinks, on the door handles and in any areas frequented by the students, faculty and staff.

In the followings we would like to call attention to some of the protective measures suggested by the WHO:

If you have any questions regarding COVID-19 or experience any symptoms associated with coronavirus please go to the Medical Center of the University of Miskolc  (E/4 dorm) or contact Sára Felszeghi, dr. med. (+36-46-565-391).
