Corona Update

Extended mask obligation (October 21, 2020)

As the number of COVID-19 infections is rising and far more people will be on the university campus for the start of the winter semester, it is necessary that the regulation concerning the obligatory wearing of masks be expanded.

Alongside the current regulation that masks (no plastic visors or similar) be worn in all areas of movement (entryways, exits, hallways, elevators, etc.), in sanitary facilities, or waiting rooms in university buildings, masks must now also be worn in all outside areas of the university.

You must wear a mask in classes until you have reached your seat.
