Being on campus

A key component of overcoming the Corona pandemic is compliance with the "AHA+L" regulations (keep a distance of 1.5 metres (Abstand), follow hygiene rules - sneeze/cough properly & wash hands thoroughly - wear masks in everyday life (Alltag), ventilate (Lüften) regularly). Please follow the rules below on campus and in RUB buildings to protect yourself and others from an infection with COVID-19.

  • In order to participate in any RUB event (including courses and examinations), a negative test result (for example of a rapid antigen test from a Corona test centre – "Bürgertest", not older than 48 hours), proof of complete vaccination protection or recovery from a Corona disease is required (= "3G Status"). Persons are considered to be fully vaccinated 14 days after the last required vaccination; persons are considered to have recovered if their positive PCR test was at least 28 days and a maximum of 6 months ago. Also recovered persons with a single Corona vaccination at least 14 days ago do not have to prove a negative Corona test. For other meetings, proof of 3G status is not required.
  • Inside all RUB buildings, a surgical face mask or FFP2 mask without valve must be worn, also during courses. During courses, you can only take off the mask during longer speeches.
  • During events (e.g. lectures), the instructions of the person in charge of the event („Veranstaltungsleitung“) must be observed. In case of oral exams, the wearing of a surgical face mask can be waived if there is sufficient distance to other persons, e.g. during a presentation given by the examinee.
  • Go straight to your appointment.
  • Travel by yourself in an elevator
  • Please be on time and keep a distance of at least 1.5 m to other persons.
  • Avoid shaking hands and other physical contact.
  • Leave the RUB campus / RUB facility directly after your meeting / appointment.

Under the following circumstances you are not allowed to enter the RUB campus or RUB facilities

  • Positive COVID-19 test result: in case of a positive result of a Corona rapid test until a negative result of a PCR test and in case of a positive PCR test, go into self-isolation or observe quarantine regulations (please refer to “Corona-Test- und Quarantäneverordnung NRW“).
  • In case of direct contact with a sick person or with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19: Persons who have had close contact (e.g. face-to-face, in their own household or at parties) with a sick person or with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 14 days are not allowed to come to the RUB (please refer to “Corona-Test- und Quarantäneverordnung NRW“). Not required for individuals fully vaccinated or fully recovered (proof required).
