During lectures and other teaching sessions
Like students, professors and instructors are subject to the 3G rule and are required to check in to enable contact tracing. Additionally, instructors are required to ensure that the physical distancing and mask-wearing requirements are observed in the course rooms. They are exempted from the requirement to wear a mask during teaching. Because the buildings are currently not outfitted with technical ventilation systems, the rooms should be aired out with the windows wide open several times per hour.
Back to the real office or home office?
The possibility to work from home, which has been in place since the beginning of the pandemic and is included in the internal agreement on alternative workplaces, continues to be in place until the end of 2021. However, many employees who are now vaccinated or recovered would like to return to the university.
In this case the following rules apply:
- Offices can still only be used by one person at a time.
- Multiple occupancy of offices is only permitted when it is absolutely necessary, the room is aired regularly and the physical distancing requirements can be consistently maintained.
- In cases of multiple occupancy, a medical mask must be worn at all times.
Why should I get vaccinated? Are the vaccines safe? Employees who are uncertain about whether they should get vaccinated can make an appointment for a personal consultation with Hamburg’s occupational health service (Arbeitsmedizinischer Dienst).
