+++ Information about COVID-19 +++

Version date: 14 December 2020

Stay at home!

Stay home at the first signs of recognizable symptoms (including light fever, cold-like symptoms, shortness of breath) until the suspected case has been examined and cleared by a doctor. This measure is to reduce the risk to the health of your colleagues. This applies to students as well.

All university members (professors, employees, students) and adjunct lecturers must also report via email to gesundheitsschutzatth-nuernbergPunktde. This information will be treated confidentially. Please contact your supervisor to decide about work-from-home options.

Please observe the AHA+L measures:

  • Abstand halten (maintain physical distance): Maintain a physical distance of 1.5 metres between yourself and others and avoid close contact with other people.
  • Hygiene beachten (observe hygiene guidelines): Refrain from shaking hands, wash your hands regularly with soap and water (at least 20 seconds), cough or sneeze into your elbow or a disposable tissue, avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.
  • Alltagsmaske tragen (wear a face mask): Please wear a mask as required in all Nuremberg Tech buildings. This mask requirement also applies to all in-person courses.
  • Lüften (ventilate): Ventilate rooms for several minutes in regular intervals.

Films on how to behave in case of infectious diseases can be found at www.infektionsschutz.de

For students: How does the delay of the start of lectures in 2020 affect my studies?

Information from the Student Advisory Service / Student Office is available on our website under the "Important information about starting at university" tab.

All current information about specific modules or online courses from the Faculties is being distributed via email. Please check your TH email account regularly.

Stay home.

University members who show unspecific general symptoms or respiratory problems of any severity and have been in contact with a confirmed COVID-19 patient in the last 14 days before the onset of symptoms or who show unspecific general symptoms or respiratory problems of any severity are considered to be so-called well-founded suspected cases and must be treated as unfit for duty or incapacitated for work and must therefore not appear for duty until the presence of a coronavirus infection has been clarified.

This applies to students as well. If you have these symptoms, please do not come to the university campus.

Contact your doctor immediately or the Ärztlichen Bereitschaftsdienst (on-call medical units) by telephone (116 117).

Inform the university at gesundheitsschutzatth-nuernbergPunktde. Staff must also inform their supervisors that they will not be coming to work.

People for whom the following are true

1. people who have had contact within the last 14 days with any person who was confirmed to have Covid-19,
2. people who have symptoms that could indicate Covid-19 (according to the RKI, e.g., fever, dry cough, difficulty breathing, loss of sense of taste or smell, throat or joint pain), or
3. are required to be in quarantine at home for 14 days according to the current Entry-Quarantine Directive (Einreise-Quarantäneverordnung - EQV) www.gesetze-bayern.de/Content/Document/BayEQV/true),

are not permitted to come to campus.

 

Exceptions in the cases of points 2 and 3 are individuals who have a medical certificate issued in German or English confirming that there are no indications of infection with the SARS-CoV-2 Corona virus, and who present this certificate to the university. The medical certificate must be based on a molecular biological test for the presence of infection with the SARS-CoV-2 Corona virus, carried out in a member state of the European Union or another state that the Robert Koch Institute has included in its list of states with sufficiently high quality standards for this purpose, and have been carried out no more than 48 hours before presentation to the university. It should be noted that a so-called "antibody test" will not suffice.

In view of the dynamic situation around the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, please keep yourself up to date by reading the information on the following sites regularly (daily): 

Bayerisches Staatsministerium für Wissenschaft  und Kunst (StMWK) für Hochschulen und kulturelle Einrichtungen

Bayerisches Landesamt für Gesundheit und Lebensmittelsicherheit (LGL Bayern)

Bundeszentrale für gesundheitliche Aufklärung (BZgA)

Gesundheitsamt der Stadt Nürnberg

The risk areas can be found in the daily situation report on the homepage of the Robert Koch Institute.
