Current information on life, studies, and work at the University of Bremen during the corona pandemic.
The University of Bremen is working with the Level Plan for Teaching, which is based on the warning level determined in the Bremen State Corona Ordinance, the incidence rate in Bremen city, and the situation on campus. This means that the state warning level may not be the same as the level of the Level Plan for Teaching. The University of Bremen crisis team determines and decides which level of the Level Plan for Teaching applies on campus.
Currently, level 1 of the Level Plan for Teaching applies at the university.
It remains obligatory to wear a mask in buildings, learning spaces, and classrooms when social distancing of 1.5 m cannot be adhered to. Proof of 3G status (vaccinated, recovered, tested) needs to be shown at building entryways.
The 3G regulation applies on campus. This means you must be either vaccinated, recovered, or tested in order to gain access to buildings. It is required that you are fully vaccinated, thus 14 days must have passed since your second vaccination (14 days after your first vaccination if you received Johnson & Johnson and 14 days after your first vaccination if you are a vaccinated, recovered person). Persons who have recovered from COVID-19 and have not been vaccinated require proof of a positive PCR test, which is valid in the period from 28 days after said test to a maximum of six months after the test. Current corona tests must be official rapid tests or PCR tests - self-tests are not sufficient. Proof of a negative test result may not be older than 24 hours if it a PoC antigen test (an antigen test carried out by an official third party) or not older than 48 hours if it is a PCR test.
Security staff will check your status at building entryways. This check will only take place when you are entering a building. Your status will not be recorded or saved.
Please also bring proof of ID (personal ID card or passport) along with your proof of 3G status.
In the frame of occupational safety, the University of Bremen is providing free-of-charge tests at the university’s own test center to unvaccinated and non-recovered staff, which includes student assistants. Appointment can be made by calling +49 421 218-60135 or 60137.
Contact chain reconstruction is carried out using the Gast-Bremen app for classes. Logging in is possible via the app and via the website. People who cannot or do not want to register via Gast-Bremen will have the option to register their presence in teaching rooms via the Corona Contact List for Teaching paper forms.
In each university building, one entryway will be open. Here security staff will check your 3G status. The emergency exits function as usual and are not affected by the closures. The entryways and exits of several buildings are now separated. Opening times may also differ. The stated opening times only apply on working days.
