    * By September 25 2020, at the latest, it will be announced what the upcoming

    * Information from the meeting of the MU Crisis Committee
    ** The Crisis Committee recommends the Crisis Staff to turn yellow within the
    university traffic light system.
    ** All events that do not relate to teaching and the university's essential
    operation will be canceled or converted to hybrid or entirely online; also
    applies to academic ceremonies, Dies academicus.
    ** MU employees will be required to inform employers about facts related to
    COVID-19; will be regulated by a decision rector.
    ** At a meeting with deans and heads of HS will be discussed in the form of
    implementation of teaching in the coming semester and MU's position on the
    National Accreditation Authority's opinion. Given the need to ensure that all
    students have access to teach according to the accreditation, the Crisis
    Committee considered it necessary to prioritize teaching in a "telepresence"
    mode. Contact teaching without this alternative can continue to be implemented
    only when online mode cannot adequately replace physical presence. For the
    first-year students, the Crisis Committee considers physical participation in
    classes an indispensable part of their adaptation to higher education
    conditions. Therefore, they recommend that faculties carefully consider the
    inclusion of selected courses in the contact form.
    ** With effect from September 14, 2020, the operation of the RMU is governed by
    MU Measure No. 7/19920 - Anti-epidemic measures plan in connection with the
