Information and updates about the coronavirus

Date: 31 May 2022

Dear students, lecturers, and visitors,

Please find more information about hygiene requirements below:

Hygiene guidelines

  • 3 G status

    At our university, all 3G and previous QR checks for students have been dropped.
  • FFP2 masks

    It is no longer mandatory to wear an FFP2 mask on campus. However, we still recommend wearing an FFP2 mask, especially if safe distances cannot be kept.
  • Ventilation

    Rooms should be ventilated at regular intervals.
  • Infection

    According to the quarantine rules in the relevant state, students should not come to university if they have been infected. Consequently, the entire cohort will not be switched to online teaching as in previous cases. Please make sure to contact your Head of Study Program if you as a student have been infected and clarify how you can make up for missed course content during your absence.

    If you are a faculty member and you are infected, you should inform  or your supervisor. You should not return to work until you have tested negative. Currently, we assume you should allow a period of 5 days minimum. If you are fit enough and would like to teach online, you may do so if you wish to. Otherwise, you will have to plan arrangements with the Head of Studies and Course Coordination to find a substitute or make up for missed classes.
