Current Coronona recommendations

Wie angekündigt hat die Universitätsleitung und der Senat die derzeit an unserer Universität geltenden Corona-Schutzmaßnahmen vor dem Hintergrund des aktuellen Infektionsgeschehens überprüft und neu bewertet: Die Maskenpflicht entfällt.

At the beginning of the summer semester, we asked the lecturers to be as flexible as possible with their teaching formats. In view of the declining incidences, we now recommend returning to face-to-face teaching in order to facilitate personal exchange and joint learning on site.

Mask obligation dropped – recommendation remains

As of Monday, 9 May 2022, masks are no longer mandatory at Friedrich Schiller University. However, it is still strongly recommended to wear a qualified mouth-nose protection (medical/FFP2 mask) inside the university – especially in larger groups and if the minimum distance of 1.5 metres cannot be maintained. Because even though the infection situation seems to be easing, caution is still advised. We appeal to everyone to protect themselves and others as well as possible.

These regulations do not apply to the University Hospital. In hospitals, stronger restrictions still exist in accordance with state regulations. Therefore, please refer to the Hygiene Management Teaching of the Faculty of Medicine.

Until Friday, 20 May, you also have the opportunity to receive a pair of free FFP2 masks by presenting your thoska. They will be handed out Monday to Friday between 10.30 and 12.30 next to the test centre in the campus foyer.

Public Test Centre in the Campus Foyer

Initially, a public test centre will be open in the Carl-Zeiß-Straße 3 foyer until the end of June, (Bürgertestzentrum) which can be used between 7.30 am and 4.30 pm Mondays to Fridays and between 10 am and 2 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. In case of a positive rapid test result, a PCR test can be done directly on site.

Special opening hours
Thursday, 12 May, from 5.45 to 7.30 pm (for the Lecture Hall Slam)
Friday, 13 May, from 7 to 9.30 pm

For labs and practical exercises, we recommend one or two voluntary tests per week, analogous to schools. For this, participants should use the public test centres.
