Corona Pandemic Update

Message from the President Regarding the Coronavirus (XXX)

Dear students,

the lockdown has been partly lifted, yet the situation is still difficult and the infection rate is increasing again.

In the meeting on Friday, March 12, the crisis team decided on the following rules and regulations.

  • For the summer semester, courses which absolutely require physical presence of the students, can be planned to be conducted as such as long as the hygiene plan can be obeyed. The Ministry of Science and Arts supports the so-called "hybrid semester“, yet at present there are many questions with respect to the future development of Covid-19, therefore we should be prepared that things might change again;
  • Occupational Safety and Health Ordinance has extended the regulations for homeoffice until the end of April;
  • We will conduct a small pilot trial with self-tests for Covid-19. However, the University will not be capable of (and is not aiming at) providing self-test to everybody. Currently it is difficult to supply these tests anyway. For those of you interested in the free-of-charge-testing possibilities provided by the government for all citizens, please follow the link (only in German) and check on near-by facilities based on your postal code https://hessenlink.de/HMSI94

Hang in there! and stay healthy

Kind regards

Hans R. Schultz
