Participation in the study process as well as other activities

Work is organized in the usual way at Klaipėda University, in accordance with the conditions of human flow management, safety distance, and other necessary health, safety, hygiene, and personal protection measures. Depending on the level of immunization of foreign students, studies can be conducted remotely during the first month of the semester, with a gradual transition to face-to-face classes.

Students involved in higher education activities must provide the following information to their supervisor, lecturer, or project manager:

  1. A document certifying that one of the following COVID-19 infection vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency has been vaccinated in Lithuania: Comirnaty, COVID-19 Vaccine Janssen, Spikevax or Vaxzevria:
    1. one week after the second dose of Comirnaty or Spikevax according to the vaccination schedule;
    2. 2 weeks after the dose of COVID-19 Vaccine Janssen;
    3. 4 weeks but no more than 13 weeks after the first dose of Vaxzevria;
    4. after the second dose of Vaxzevria vaccine according to the vaccination schedule;
    5. 2 weeks after administration of a single dose of Comirnaty, Spikevax, or Vaxzevria to a person with a history of COVID-19 and the diagnosis was confirmed by a positive SARS-CoV-2 PCR test;
    6. one week after the second dose of Comirnaty or Vaxzevria, if the first dose of vaccine was given with Vaxzevria and the second with Comirnaty or vice versa.

If a person has been vaccinated against COVID-19 infection with a vaccine which was NOT approved by the European Medicines Agency in Lithuania, an antibody test must be performed (point 2a). If no antibodies are detected, a SARS-CoV-2 PCR test should be performed.

  1. The person has a history of COVID-19 and:
    1. A positive result in a SARS-CoV-2 PCR test or an antigen test confirmed the diagnosis, and no more than 210 days had passed since the positive result in the test (but not before the end of the prescribed isolation period) or the person has received a positive (less than 60 days prior to the detection of anti-S, anti-S1 or anti-RBD IgG antibodies to SARS-CoV-2) quantitative or semi-quantitative serological immunological test, unless the serological test is performed after COVID-19 disease vaccine;
    2. a person who tested negative for COVID-19 at least 48 hours (from sampling) after the SARS-CoV-2 PCR test.

It is possible to get one of the COVID-19 vaccines or to have an antigen test by calling the COVID-19 hotline at 1808 or registering online at https://1808.lt/ The test at mobile points is free of charge. You can also request paid tests from private laboratories. International students must have a temporary residence permit or visa to register for vaccination.

In case of contact with the patient who has COVID-19

If you have had or suspect you have had contact with a person infected with COVID-19, you must complete a questionnaire on the NVSC website and wait for a call from professionals who will conduct an individual risk assessment. If you have come into contact with a sick person and are experiencing symptoms of the disease (fever, cough, difficulty breathing), call the COVID-19 hotline at 1808 immediately.

Self-isolation requirements

You can check whether isolation is required on arrival in the weekly updated list of affected countries LIST OF COUNTRIES AFFECTED BY COVID-19 AND REQUIREMENTS (valid from 30 August to 5 September ) | National Public Health Center under the Ministry of Health (lrv.lt) The duration of self-isolation is 10 days.

Individuals who have traveled from another country and are required to isolate themselves for 10 days can shorten their isolation by conducting their own research on day 7 in one of these medical facilities: „Baltics Medics“, UAB „Diagnostikos laboratorija“, UAB „Medicina practica laboratorija“, UAB „SK Impeks Medicinos diagnostikos centras“, UAB „Invitro diagnostika“, SYNLAB Lietuva, UAB.

Even if the isolation period is reduced, it is still necessary to limit the number of people in contact, to go only to work and straight home, wear a face mask, keep a safe distance, and take other general coronavirus prevention precautions for 14 days after arrival.

Upon arrival from designated countries from this listLIST OF COUNTRIES AFFECTED BY COVID-19 AND REQUIREMENTS (valid from 30 August to 5 September ) | National Public Health Center under the Ministry of Health (lrv.lt) the isolation conditions are more stringent: it is not possible to go for a walk, it is not possible to isolate oneself in one apartment or house together with family members who have not traveled. If a person is isolated with relatives, they must be isolated in separate rooms (except when it is necessary to care for minors or the disabled), as must those who live together for the same period of time (incapacity for work is not issued). Non-travelers do not need to be isolated if they have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or are fully vaccinated.
