Corona rules for study and teaching

Summer semester 2022

In view of the still very high numbers of infections in Frankfurt, the Presidential Board has decided that the current regulations on mandatory masks will remain in force until further notice in order to protect university staff and avoid major breakdowns in study operations. However, the 3G regulation for university admission will be dropped, as will the blanket offer of testing.

However, the Presidential Board recommends that all members of the university and visitors to the HfMDK continue to carry out regular self-tests where possible and to ensure individual vaccination protection in accordance with the current recommendations of the STIKO in order to protect themselves and others.

The following rules will apply from April 2, 2022.

In the event of a significant decline in the incidence in Frankfurt, the Corona team and the Presidential Board will consider (also depending on the incidence of infection at the university) when further relaxations are possible.
