On 17th March, the UW rector issued an order on the temporary limitation on the obligation to work on the university campuses, in connection with preventing the spread of the coronavirus. The order includes information for heads of UW units and university administration. It applied until 27th March. On 26th March, Prof. Marcin Pałys, the UW rector, decided to prolong this time until 10th April.
The document introduces remote work as a rule throughout the university. The exceptions are positions key to ensure occupational health and safety at the University of Warsaw as well as the continuity of the university’s operation, and the protection of its possessions.
University units operate remotely, excepting offices enumerated in the annexe to the order.
Rector’s order results from the Ministry of Science and Higher Education document, which changes the ministerial order on the interim limitation on the functioning of some institutions of higher education.
On 26th March, Prof. Marcin Pałys issued a new order, prolonging, until 10th April, the temporary limitation on the obligation to work on the university campuses.
