Binding rules for visiting the campus and branch offices
- Given falling coronavirus infection rates, the University Governing Board has decided that the following regulation on compulsory masks will apply from Monday, 24 May 2021: Masks are compulsory on the campus of the University of Bayreuth and its satellite campuses. The obligation to wear masks also applies while working at a fixed (work) place. Persons who are alone in a room or who are outdoors alone (i.e. on the move) are exempt. This applies both to University employees and external visitors Other occupational health and safety regulations (e.g. in laboratories) remain unaffected.
- Wherever possible, maintain the recommended minimum distance of 1.5 metres to other people.
- Wash your hands regularly. Soap, disposable towels, and disinfectants (as an accompanying measure) will be provided in sufficient quantities.
- Cough and sneeze only into the crook of your arm.
- Avoid physical contact and the shared use of objects.
- If possible, refrain from using lifts. If you are dependent on lifts for health reasons, use them one person at a time.
- Make sure that all rooms you use that do not have a technical ventilation system are aired. To do this, please open the windows for at least 5 minutes every 45 minutes and preferably provide cross-ventilation (draught) with as much air exchange as possible.
