Obligation to wear a medical mask

The obligation to wear at least one medical mask continues to apply in teaching and examination events, in public areas and in general circulation areas (corridors, foyers, toilets, elevators, etc.).

Wearing masks not only serves to protect employees and students, but is also done out of consideration for those among them whose health and well-being are particularly dependent on mindful interaction.

Observance of the AHA+A+L formula (distance, hygiene, daily routine with mask, app, ventilation) continues to make sense. Even though many guidelines (e.g. walking direction in stairwells/corridors, use of elevators) have now been dropped, we rely on all university employees to act on their own responsibility.
