Recommendations on how to protect yourself from coronavirus:
We would like to inform you that the Jagiellonian University, following guidelines published by the Chief Sanitary Inspector, seeks to prevent infections with coronavirus SARS-CoV-2.
The most useful thing we can all do to help prevent the spread of disease is to follow basic health precautions:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water.
- If you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue.
- Keep at least 1-meter distance from people who are coughing or sneezing.
If you return from a region where coronavirus has appeared, and you have symptoms of the illness, or you had been in contact with a person who was affected by the illness, report about it to the sanitary-epidemiologic station via phone.
Information line of NFZ:
800 190 590 (for Polish numbers) or +48 22 12 56 600 (for foreign numbers)

If you suspect the infection with coronavirus you should:
- contact the appropriate regional sanitary and epidemiological station; Regional Sanitary-Epidemiological Station in Kraków: Mon-Fri, 7:30 15:00, phone: 12 254 95 55; 667 881 188 (emergency);
- visit the nearest infectious diseases ward; Department of Infectious Diseases of the University Hospital in Kraków; ul. Jakubowskiego 2, phone: 12 400 20 47 or 12 400 20 20; email@example.com
We encourage you to follow current announcements of the Chief Sanitary Inspector: https://gis.gov.pl/aktualnosci/ and comply with the instructions included.
We would also like to inform you that a medical check for the presence of COVID-19 and treatment including medicines, hospitalization are free of charge for everyone, even those that do not have insurance provided by the National Health Fund (NFZ).
You will not have to pay for any medical actions taken in relation to suspicion or the presence of COVID-19. That means as well that if your private health insurance is providing you reimbursement in case of COVID-19 diagnosis or treatment, you may still expect free public health care services.
COVID-19 is considered as a public, not an individual health threat. Keep in mind that the situation in other countries may differ.
