Information on dealing with the corona virus

Summary of organization of teaching in the winter semester 2021/22 at MLU:

  1. all face-to-face lectures of the university in the winter semester 2021/22 will take place in compliance with the so-called 3G rule. Thus, only persons (students and employees) who have been vaccinated against the SARS-CoV-2 virus or have tested negative or have recovered may participate in these events, regardless of the group size. There are no upper limits on the number of people and the requirement to maintain a minimum distance. The event rooms can thus be used to their full seating capacity.
  2. individual proof of 3G status must be carried by each participating person in printed or digital form. Proof of a negative test may be provided by an antigen test (rapid or self-test), which must not be older than 24 h, or a PCR test, which must not be older than 48 h.
  3. signs with QR code are placed in front of all entrances of the event rooms. All participants of a course (students and lecturers) are obliged to register with the event via the QR code and the “Lion App” (on any suitable smartphone) when entering the room. With the registration, the participating person declares at the same time that the requirements of the 3G rule are personally fulfilled. Technical instructions for electronic self-registration (as well as for registration of persons who do not have a smartphone) are yet to be provided.
  4. on the circulation areas of the buildings there is a duty to wear a medical mouth-nose-protection (“OP-mask” or FFP2-mask). The same applies in the event room for the way to and from the seat as well as when leaving the seat.
  5. during a course, there is only an obligation to wear a medical mask when staying at the seat if the 3G proof has not been provided for all participating persons. Proof can be provided in particular through admission checks.
  6. compliance with the 3G rule will also be checked by random checks. If violations of the 3G rule are detected, the respective lecturer will exclude the person from the course on the respective day. Violations and imposed sanctions are to be reported to the Chancellor’s Office. In the event of repeated violations, disciplinary proceedings may be initiated in accordance with university law (for students) or personnel law measures (for employees).

There are no special regulations within the university for official trips in Germany and abroad due to the Corona pandemic. As before, there is a requirement to critically examine the necessity of each official trip in the current situation; this is the responsibility of both the traveler and the supervisor who approves the official trip. In making this decision, superiors may also take into account any vaccination or convalescent status of the traveler known to them. Furthermore, the (possible) triggering of a quarantine obligation for travelers after returning from the official trip must be considered in the decision.

Please check the announcement (in German) for details.
