Several legal regulations as well as University guidelines are in place to help combat the global coronavirus pandemic. On the basis of these regulations, the TU Berlin Executive Board has developed specific details and measures for our University.
All details will be published and regularly updated here.
The expiration of the SARS-CoV-2 Occupational Health and Safety Regulations on 26 May represents a further step in relaxing restrictions regarding the coronavirus pandemic. This relaxed approach to fighting and managing the virus has been evident this past spring. Unfortunately, however, the pandemic is not over yet. In a joint press release, the Senate Department for Science, Health, Care, and Equality and the presidents of Berlin universities (LKRP) published their recommendations for the upcoming months. Effective 26 May, the following rules apply at TU Berlin:
Masks provide highly effective protection against infection, both for the wearer and others. As such, TU Berlin continues to recommend all persons wear a medical mask (preferably an FFP2 mask) in all University buildings.
These hygiene regulations are the basic protective measures for infection protection against the coronavirus in University operations. They are developed on the basis of the general risk assessment for TU Berlin and have been revised to reflect the most current state and federal regulations. We ask that you please observe these.
The Coronavirus Crisis Committee will be discontinuing its work upon the expiration of the SARS-CoV-2 Occupational Health and Safety Regulations. The committee was established by the Executive Board at the onset of the pandemic. In over 100 meetings it has taken important decisions with the aim of preventing the University from becoming an infection hot spot, a mission it has successfully achieved. The Executive Board thanks all the committee members and advisors for their efforts. It will continue to assess the situation and will regularly review whether the jointly agreed regulations with regards to the pandemic require amending.
