PJAIT Rector’s announcement on the epidemiological situation in Asian countries and Italy

(update version: 9.03.2020)

Dear All

For the sake of your security and wellbeing, due to the epidemiological situation, we strongly advise you to follow current announcements concerning the spread of the COVID-19 virus and warn you against decisions to travel abroad now.

Students who have recently returned from Asian countries and Italy, in particular from the regions of Lombardy, Veneto, Piedmont, Emilia Romagna and Lazio, are strongly urged to limit their activities for 14 days by keeping quarantine (staying at home) and monitoring their health status.

This recommendation also applies for the Academy’s employees who have recently returned or are returning from these countries.

The authorities of PJAIT have decided to suspend all employee and student trips to Asian countries and Italy.

Students’ and employees’ absences in classes and lectures will be excused on the basis of the scan of the travel documents to regions which are at epidemiological COVID-19 risk.

Students are requested to send those scans to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., whereas employees to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Please pay special attention to your health status. If you notice any disturbing symptoms, you should contact the Chief Sanitary Inspectorate by phone or by email.

National Health Fund has launched a 24-hour telephone line (800-190-590) for information on what action needs to be taken if coronavirus infection is suspected.

We are closely following the latest developments and recommendations issued by authorities to be ready to take further action if necessary.

For the sake of safety of all our academic community, we have decided to take the following measures:

  • We have advised students and employees returning from high risk countries to keep 14-day quarantine;
  • We have introduced disinfection of door handles, railings, banisters and elevator buttons on all premises of PJAIT;
  • Disinfectant dispensers are placed at entrances;
  • Disinfectants are available in toilets;
  • Instructions on effective hand washing are placed in toilets.

Kind regards,
Dr hab. Jerzy Paweł Nowacki
Rector PJAIT
