What to do if a subordinate of yours has tested positive for COVID-19?

First of all, instruct the infected employee to stay at home and not go to work.

Immediately inform UWB via email at, or by phone on 377 631 210, and you will receive further instructions.

This will be followed by contact tracing according to rules that UWB continuously monitors and communicates with the Public Health Service of the Czech Republic.


What to do if I test positive for COVID-19?

  • Stay at home
  • Immediately inform your superior and await further instructions

My doctor has issued me a sick note, although I have arranged with my superior to work from home.

General practitioners issuing sick notes is a standard procedure used for statistical purposes. If you are in quarantine and/or have tested positive for COVID-19, feel well enough to be able to work from home and such an arrangement has been made with your superior, you must inform your superior that you have been issued a sick note by your GP.

If you have been issued a sick note and you are not working from home (i.e., you are on sick leave), there is no need to inform your superior.


My subordinate has been issued an electronic sick note, although he/she is working from home.

General practitioners issuing sick notes is a standard procedure used for statistical purposes. If your subordinate is in quarantine and/or has tested positive for COVID-19 but feels well enough to work from home, and such an arrangement has been made, you need to inform the UWB Payroll Department (the appropriate payroll clerk) in writing of the fact that your subordinate has been issued a sick note by his/her GP.

If the Payroll Department does not receive this information from you, they will consider the employee with a sick note to be on sick leave, which will result in the employee receiving 60 % of their salary.

If your subordinate has been issued a sick note and will not be working from home (i.e., he or she is in fact on sick leave), there is no need to inform the Payroll Department.

Končická: FDULS, FEL, UK, CIV, OCV
