Reporting Addresses in case of Infection

You have been infected yourself?

Immediately send a written report:

  • Employees: personaleinzelatzuv [dot] tu-freiberg [dot] de
  • Students: studierendenbueroatzuv [dot] tu-freiberg [dot] de

Regulation of the district of Central Saxony within the framework of the enforcement of the Act on the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases in Humans (Infection Protection Act - IfSG)

In close contact with a person who has tested positive:

  • If you live with someone who has tested positive, you are a household member. You must stay at home (seclude yourself) if you are not fully vaccinated or recovered.
  • Your seclusion begins on the first day after contact and ends after ten days if you do not also test positive or have symptoms by then.
  • Inform the student office: studierendenbueroatzuv [dot] tu-freiberg [dot] de or the Human Resources Department: personaleinzelatzuv [dot] tu-freiberg [dot] de
  • You may only leave your flat if you need to go to the doctor or for testing.
  • The segregation period may end earlier if a PCR test taken no earlier than the 5th day after the last contact or a rapid antigen test taken no earlier than the 7th day is negative. Segregation ends when the negative test result is available. 
  • Close contacts (for example colleagues or fellow students) who are not secreted should be tested on the 4th or 5th day after contact.

Contact persons who are without symptoms and

  • fully vaccinated or
  • has been vaccinated once and had a Corona infection confirmed by PCR test no more than six months ago, or
  • are considered to have "recovered" (infection confirmed by PCR test no more than six months ago),

are exempt from the obligation to segregate. Proof must be provided to the public health department.

However, the exemption from segregation does not apply if there is suspicion or evidence that the source case is infected with one of the SARS-CoV-2 variants of concern.

If contacts develop symptoms typical of Covid-19, they must self-segregate and arrange for prompt testing.

Those who are fully vaccinated but still test positive must still be quarantined, but can shorten the time. People who have been fully vaccinated and have not developed symptoms can take a PCR test on day 5 at the earliest or a rapid antigen test on day 7. If this test is negative, the quarantine ends.

Further information can be found in the public announcement of the district of Central Saxony.

You can find instructions on what to consider during testing and quarantine here.

Do you have contact difficulties, e.g. because of language barriers?
