Stay home!

Stay home at the first sign 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.

Quarantine at home for incoming or returned travelers; observation

According to the Bavarian Ministerial Gazette of 15 June 2020, persons entering the Free State of Bavaria by land, sea, or air from a country outside the Federal Republic of Germany and have visited a risk area within the 14 days preceding their entry are obliged to go directly to their own home or other suitable accommodation immediately after entry and to remain there permanently for a period of 14 days after entry; this also applies to persons who have first entered another state of the Federal Republic of Germany. The persons mentioned in the first sentence above are not permitted to receive visits from persons who do not belong to their household during this period.

All university members (professors, employees, students) and lecturers affected by this regulation must also report via e-mail to gesundheitsschutzatth-nuernbergPunktde.

This information will be treated confidentially. Please contact your supervisor to decide about work-from-home options.

Please observe the following hygiene measures:

  • Keep your distance and avoid close contact with obviously ill persons.
  • Refrain from shaking hands to greet and say goodbye.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap (at least 20 seconds).
  • Use disposable tissues for coughing and sneezing, alternatively: sneeze or cough into your elbow.
  • Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands if possible.

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.

University members who have been in contact with a person who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 within the last 14 days, must immediately inform the local Health Department (Gesundheitsamt) responsible for them and a report must be sent to gesundheitsschutzatth-nuernbergPunktde. These reports must be made – regardless of whether symptoms of the disease are present.

Within the framework of the current establishment agreement (Dienstvereinbarung), it is possible to work from home if this has been agreed with your supervisor and if the operations of your unit allow it.
