Corona rules for study and teaching

Summer semester 2022, update 3.6.2022

With the elimination of a large number of government-mandated infection control measures, each and every one of us has a high degree of personal responsibility. Since we have great confidence in your sense of responsibility, the obligation to wear a mask is waived.

However, the Presidential Board recommends that all members of the university and visitors to the HfMDK continue to wear a mask whenever possible, to carry out regular self-tests and to ensure individual vaccination protection in order to protect themselves and others.

Events

Events
  • There are still no access restrictions (i.e. no proof of vaccination or testing is required)
  • In the audience there is only an urgent recommendation to wear a mask (OP mask sufficient, FFP2 recommended) - however, especially out of consideration for the contributors we ask the audience to wear a mask
  • The hall occupancy is no longer subject to any restrictions

Tests

Tests
  • Projects with 20 or more participants (except theory seminars / discursive formats) as well as all scenic projects and lessons (regardless of the number of participants) continue to work on the basis of daily self-tests. Corresponding projects must be registered with the KBB at least 2 weeks in advance.

Permanent faculty as well as library and student services staff who are exposed to increased traffic will be provided 2 tests per week. These can be picked up from Housekeeping. The regulations for KBB and House Services will continue to apply unchanged.

  • Corona tests may no longer be required as a prerequisite for participation in qualifying examinations. However, applicants are requested to test themselves in advance on their own responsibility.

Mandatory masks

Mandatory masks
  • The mask requirement does not apply (i.e. entering the university and participating in classes and events is possible without a mask)
  • Wearing a medical mask is still recommended, especially when a distance of 1.5 m from others cannot be maintained. If a person in the room requests that masks be worn, we strongly urge everyone in that group to wear a mask.

In situations where others are not wearing masks, you can protect yourself to a very high degree by wearing an FFP2 mask. When used properly, scientific studies suggest an efficiency of more than 90%.

    Ventilation

    Ventilation

    Please continue to think about regular and intensive ventilation - besides the mask, this is the most effective measure to prevent infection

    Infection cases

    Infection cases
    • for employees of the university there is still the obligation to report to the employer an infection or the status as a close contact person or a segregation after return journey (according to the current entry regulation) or segregation ordered by the health department (please contact the personnel department: zeiterfassung@hfmdk-frankfurt.de)
    • all university employees: If you test positive for Covid-19, please notify all close contacts in the university immediately to help contain further transmission and adhere closely to legal quarantine regulations

    Quarantine

    Federal and state adopted quarantine rules apply, please refer to the federal government website for details.
