Information for the University staff

  • Teleworking

    Teleworking is recommended if the nature of the activity allows it. The direct superiors/responsible persons of the organisational units define for the employees reporting to them the form in which the activities are carried out (teleworking or presence on site), in compliance with the health protection measures. Employees who are particularly at risk (supported by a medical certificate on request) carry out their work at home.

    It is incumbent on the supervisors or heads of the units/groups to draw up attendance and prevention plans for their own staff and other persons (especially students), for which they are responsible and which comply with the general requirements.

  • Meetings

    Outdoor meetings or events in attendance form with more than 1000 people are prohibited unless a certificate is required. Less restrictive regulations of the Federal Council or the Council of State remain reserved.

    The organisers of internal meetings or indoor face-to-face events may stipulate that only persons holding a valid COVID-19 certificate may participate in them. In this case, they shall ensure that persons employed by the University who do not hold a COVID-19 certificate may participate online.

    Internal meetings involving both persons with a valid COVID-19 certificate and those without a certificate shall be conducted online as far as possible.

    If internal meetings or events in face-to-face form in indoor rooms are not restricted to persons with a valid COVID-19 certificate, the rooms in question may be filled to no more than two-thirds of their capacity. In addition, seating is compulsory, whereby one seat must be kept free in addition to two occupied seats, if possible, or an equivalent distance must be maintained between the seats. The maximum number of persons attending on site is 30; they must be known to the organisers. The restriction on the maximum number of persons attending does not apply to meetings of university bodies and commissions that cannot be postponed.

  • Events

    At indoor face-to-face events attended exclusively by external persons or external persons and members of the university community, all participants must have a valid COVID-19 certificate.

    At aperitifs inside the buildings, all participants must have a valid COVID-19 certificate. This requirement does not apply to aperitifs outside. The hygiene measures and the minimum distance rules (see A.) must be observed.

    Coffee breaks at meetings and other events may be held inside the buildings with a maximum of 30 participants, whereby seating is compulsory. This limit does not apply in the outdoor area. The hygiene measures and the minimum distance rules (see A.) must be observed.

    Coffee breaks inside attended exclusively by persons holding a valid COVID-19 certificate, the maximum number of participants permitted under number 17 shall not apply, provided that the validity of the certificates of all persons attending is verified.

    With regard to business trips, it is recommended that these should be limited as far as possible and that they follow the guidelines and recommendations of the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA).
