Dear instructors and students of the University of Primorska,
In view of the current situation regarding the coronavirus COVID-19, we would like to inform you that for the next 14 days (from Monday, March 9, 2020 to Friday, March 20, 2020), the pedagogical processes (lectures, tutorials, ...) at the University of Primorska are cancelled. We will keep you informed regarding a replacement for the cancelled pedagogical process.
The instructions from the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport, National Institute for Public Health, and the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Slovenia state that it is necessary to act preventively and to adjust the measures taken by a particular institution to the situation. After examining the information from all the above institutions, and that of Italy's "Istituto Superiore di Sanita dell 'Italia" (NIJZ equivalent in the Republic of Slovenia) considering the fact that Italy is the largest focal point of COVID-19 in Europe, the above measures have been taken for preventive reasons. Our university interacts daily with neighboring Italy.
In the coming days, you will also receive further instructions for continuing classes at a distance (for example, using e-classrooms, distance lectures, ...).
We will keep you informed of any further changes or measures.
Prof. Klavdija Kutnar, PhD
