Directors decision - Paid leave 16th - 17th March
unfortunately since my last mail to you sent on Wednesday,
11.03.2020, the corona virus situation has further developed. In a
cascade of decisions released on 12.3.2020: Částka 30, Částka 31, on
13.3.2020: Částka 32 and on 14.3.2020: Částka 33, the Goverment of the
CR has done rigorous measures to mitigate the virus is spreading.
Basically, and in simplified form, it has two pillars:
A) Travelling: From tomorrow on we cannot leave the country, no
foreigners can enter the country, and employees arriving from any risk
countries after 13.3.2020, 12:00 have to go to 14 days quarantine.
B) Trying to minimize the contact between individuals (e.g. by closing
all restaurants, many shops and other social distancing measures).
Reflecting the present situation in our Institute with up to 6
employees sharing a room of 18 square meters and the fact that
restaurants will only offer "take away" service, I am convinced that
we have to optimize the work in our Institute in a way that we will
minimize those contacts. Unfortunately, we face the situation that our
Institute is over-crowded and this is certainly not in line with what
the government of the CR has in mind at the present "Corona-virus"
Reflecting the recent situation, I think the best is to gain time to
re-organize our work life in line with the recent and upcoming
decisions of the government of the CR.
Thus, I declare for the days 16.3 and 17.3 so-called "director's paid
leave" for all employees with the exception of:
1) Heads of Departments, 2) members of the Management, 3) the Heads and
Deputy heads of the Technical and Economic Departments, 4) members of
the director's department including the IT team and 5) members of the technical section including the persons at the
Please view the period of the "director's paid leave" like a
Saturday. The Institute is open, but you are not encouraged to be
going to the Institute.
For those, who plan to come there is information from M-catering that
they will serve takeaway food at the back entrance to the cafeteria
building from 11:00 to 14:00.
We will inform you at the latest on Tuesday, how the work life from
Wednesday 19.3.2020 on will be organized.
