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.

And this currently applies

Last update: 26 November 2021

  • In order to participate in any RUB event (including courses and examinations) on campus, a negative test result (for example of a rapid antigen test from a Corona test centre – "Bürgertest", not older than 24 hours), proof of complete vaccination protection or recovery from a Corona disease is required (= "3G Status"). Individuals are considered to be fully vaccinated 14 days after the last required vaccination; individuals are considered to have recovered if their positive PCR test was at least 28 days and a maximum of 6 months ago. Also recovered individuals with a single Corona vaccination do not have to prove a negative Corona test. Proof of the 3G status is not required for appointments/ meetings which are not classified as events (see CoronaschutzVO NRW).
  • Come to your appointment by yourself (without an accompanying person) unless assistance is needed e.g. for (severely) disabled persons. In this case please discuss the according arrangements in advance with the person in charge of your appointment.
  • Please be on time and keep a distance of at least 1.5 m to other persons.
  • Avoid shaking hands and other physical contact.
  • A surgical face mask must be worn everywhere inside all RUB buildings. This applies to lectures and exams in principle also while seated.
  • Go straight to your appointment.
  • Travel by yourself in an elevator, if possible.

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

  • COVID-19 symptoms: In case of symptoms of a respiratory infection (cough, sniffles, sore throat with/without fever) and/or in case of newly occurring odour or taste disorders, do not come to the RUB, but instead contact your family doctor by phone (re. COVID-19 testing, certificate of incapacity to work)
  • Positive COVID-19 test result: In case of a positive result of a Corona rapid test - until a negative result of a PCR test – as well as 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 10 days are not allowed to come to the RUB (please refer to “Corona-Test- und Quarantäneverordnung NRW“). Detailed information on how employees should behave after contact can be found on a information leaflet in the "Serviceportal".
