No. We recommend wearing a medical mask or FFP2 mask in all HSD buildings, particularly in class, but the obligation to wear a mask no longer applies.
Please respect other people wearing masks and do not urge anyone to take off their mask. Please continue to be considerate of each other.
Some rooms feature automatic ventilation systems. A sign on the door indicates whether the room features an automatic ventilation system.
All other rooms must be ventilated manually for at least five minutes before use. Also, regular ventilation is necessary during courses and examinations. To ventilate the room properly, open the windows wide and, if possible, also the doors. Intensive ventilation for three to ten minutes is recommended at least every 30 minutes. The exact amount of time needed to properly ventilate a room may vary depending on a number of factors, including room size, equipment, difference in temperature outside and inside. A rough recommendation would be: approx. 10 minutes in summer, 5 minutes in spring and autumn, 3 minutes in winter time.
The person responsible for the course must ensure that the necessary measures in line with the regulations on infection protection are complied with before and during the course. This person may exclude anyone from the course who refuses to comply with these measures.
No. HSD organises appropriate cleaning of the rooms used for teaching and examinations Monday to Friday.
In addition, the university provides disinfectant for you to sanitise individual workstations, seats and tables, if needed. The faculties are responsible for equipping their course and examination rooms. To get disinfectant for this purpose, this form (available in German only) needs to be completed and presented in the university post room where the disinfectant can be collected. If you need help filling the form, please get in touch with our occupational and environmental safety team.
