Le professeur dit de ne pas courir.
Can "ne pas courir" be used as the negative imperative "Don't run !"
Yes, this construction can be used for generalised commands such as may be found in a school playground or corridor.
On French trains there used to be, maybe there still is, where windows can be opened, a warning is posted:
"Ne pas se pencher au dehors"
Hope this helps,
