Message from the President regarding the Corona Virus (LX)

Dear students and colleagues,

There are several important points with respect to Covid-19, which the crisis team has decided on:

  • Irrespective of the official timespan for a quarantine after a Covid-19 infection (currently 5 days), access to the university after an infection is only permitted with an official negative test result. This is to be reported to the student office.
  • The updated Hygiene plan (German and English) will be published on the website.
  • The rule to wear masks in University buildings applies until further notice

I hope that the situation continues to ease and improve.

Please stay healthy!


Prof. Dr. Hans R. Schultz
