Besides vaccination, wearing masks remains the most effective measure in the fight against the Corona virus as well as against other respiratory pathogens. Therefore, where a distance of two metres is not maintained (entrances, assembly points, etc.), wearing a mask (FFP2 or MNS) is recommended from the time of entering the building where the lecture room is located until the time of leaving the building and also during the lecture. Wearing a mask is no longer compulsory.
At present, the provision of proof of only a low epidemiological risk for entry into the course or examination building is not checked or required for participation in courses and examinations.
Students who are ill with COVID-19 or who have typical COVID-19 symptoms (such as, in particular, fever, cough, runny nose, scratchy throat, shortness of breath, smell and taste disorders, myalgias, unclear, new skin changes, non-food-related diarrhoea) or who are affected by traffic restrictions for persons with a positive SARS-CoV-2 test may not attend courses.
