Overview of current rules regarding coronavirus
Obligation to wear face masks
The obligation to wear face masks shall continue to apply in university buildings (indoors and in public areas). Surgical masks are the minimum. However, we recommend wearing an FFP2 mask to keep yourself safe. The mask can be removed once the minimum distance of 1.5m to other people can be maintained at all times (whilst seated, standing or at your desk). Further information is available under the headings Basic protective measures/ Obligation to wear a mask.
No longer applies (Please note the special rules for the Faculty of Medicine.)
Suspended Contact data is no longer being collected (via ‘darfichrein.de’) and cases of infection are also no longer being recorded or traced.
Please observe hygiene measures and ensure that the minimum distance is observed where possible. More information about ventilating rooms correctly is available on our website.
Working from home
Please refer to the agreement on working from home for further information on regulations for working from home, available on our website.
Testing facilities remain available free of charge to members of the general public (POC antigen tests in certified test centers). Staff can still order up to two self-tests per week from FAU. Please see this web page for information on the ordering process.
