Information on How to Deal With the Coronavirus Pandemic


Effective February 1 and 2, 2023, respectively, the federal and state governments have repealed the remaining measures relevant to university operations (e.g., mandatory isolation and mandatory masks in the work environment). The general recommendations for the prevention of infectious diseases now apply. The rectorate and the crisis team continue to ask for a mindful approach in dealing with each other at our university. This includes the aspect that persons may continue to decide on their own responsibility to wear a protective mask in order to protect themselves and others. Anyone suffering from an infectious disease should continue to refrain from visiting the RWTH.

Corona, like other infectious diseases, is now managed internally at the university by the University Medical Center and the Office of Occupational Safety and Radiation Protection. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the employees in the respective facilities.
