Regarding ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF:
Guidelines for non-academic staff at the University of Gdańsk:
Until further notice, ensuring safe working conditions (like maintaining 2 meter social distance) the reinstating of working hours set forth in Work Regulation is underway. During the transitional period a head of unit may decide on remote working or working hours modification for their subordinate employees. At this time, wearing protective masks and gloves is recommended in common areas (hallways, bathrooms etc.) and workplaces populated by more than two people.
