Information on Coronavirus / Covid-19


With effect from February 1 and 2, respectively, the federal and state governments have lifted the remaining measures relevant to university operations (such as mandatory isolation and mandatory masks in the work environment). The general recommendations for the prevention of infectious diseases now apply. The Rectorate and the Crisis Management Team continue to urge all our members to be considerate toward one another here at our university. One example of this is that everyone is free to decide whether to continue wearing masks to protect themselves and others. Those who are ill with an infectious disease should still not enter the RWTH premises.

Coronavirus – like other infectious diseases – is now managed internally at the University by the University Medical Center and the Occupational Safety and Radiation Protection Staff Unit.
