Coronavirus – Rector's information

The health of our students and employees is very important to us. Following distance rules, wearing a mouth and nose protector and the usage of the Corona-Warn-App are contributions with a big effect! Together we can reduce the spreading of COVID-19.

With the progressing course of infections all members of the TU Bergakademie Freiberg as well as guests are only allowed to enter and stay at the buildings of the university with a mouth-nose cover (community mask). In all rooms (teaching rooms, offices, etc.) and general circulation areas (such as corridors, foyers, sanitary facilities, copy rooms, elevators) the mouth-nose cover must be worn.

Exceptions are:

  • Teaching staff in lectures, seminars, etc., who ensure a minimum distance of 3 m or wear an appropriate face mask with visor.
  • Individual offices or offices where the minimum distance can be maintained.

Please protect yourself and others by avoiding contacts, by adhering to the AHA+L formula (which stands for keeping distance, hygiene, everyday mask and ventilation) and by acting prudently (e.g. wearing your mask outside of the buildings, no personal face-to-face meetings). Please do not try to improve the predefined rules in the sense of alleged "Greater Liberties”, but rather revise your personal behaviour to protect yourself and others.

Hygiene Measures

  • In general, entering the offices in the teaching, laboratory and administration buildings is only permitted individually or with the corresponding minimum distance of 1.50 m. When entering a building, mouth-and-nose protection must always be worn. This applies to the entire campus area.
  • Contacts with other people are to be reduced to an absolutely necessary minimum and the minimum distance is to be kept wherever possible.
  • Hand hygiene must be strictly observed, ie regular and thorough hand washing with soap for at least 20 seconds - at least before starting work, at the end and generally after every toilet visit and in the event of contamination. Disposable towels should be used after hand washing.
  • Avoid direct physical contact, such as shaking hands or hugs.
  • If coughing or sneezing, turn away as far as possible and use the elbow or disposable tissues.
  • Everyone is responsible for ensuring that the body is properly hydrated.
  • There must be sufficient healthy breathing air in rooms. The simplest form is window ventilation. The users are responsible for opening the windows. In buildings and rooms with air conditioning systems, the building management controls the air conditioning system in such a way that a maximum supply of fresh air is ensured.
  • Everyone is responsible for the hygienic preparation of their own mouth-nose cover (reusable fabric mouth-nose covers can be washed at 60°C).
  • The occurrence of an infection with the coronavirus must be reported immediately to the responsible authorities (student office for students, personnel department for employees) by the sick person. They will report the infection to the responsible health office, which will initiate all further measures.
  • Returning students or first-year students from risk areas must comply with the respective regulations, such as corona tests and quarantine. Compliance with the regulations is monitored by the public health department / regulatory authority.
