General guidelines:

In order to protect your own health and to avoid further infections, Heinrich Heine University takes the following preventive measures. These measures apply regardless of whether first symptoms of the disease have already appeared. As a general rule you should only come to campus in urgently necessary cases.

  1. All students should stay off campus unless there is an urgent reason to come.
  2. Students who are infected with SARS-CoV-2 are not allowed to enter Heinrich Heine University grounds or buildings until it has been proven that they have been cured or that they are no longer contagious.
  3. Students who have entered Germany from one of the international risk areas or who have been in a particularly affected area (such as Heinsberg district until 31 March 2020) are not allowed to enter Heinrich Heine University grounds or buildings for 14 days after entering Germany or returning from a journey/trip. Those 14 days begin after a person has ended his or her stay in said countries/areas.
    A list of these areas, which is constantly updated by the Robert Koch Institute, can be found here: RKI list of areas
  4. Students who have been or are still in personal contact with persons infected with coronavirus, e.g. because they care for them or live with them in a domestic community, are not allowed to enter Heinrich Heine University grounds or buildings either for the duration of the contact person’s illness and for 14 days beyond that. Follow the directions issued by the public health authorities.

These regulations also apply to the premises and buildings of the University Hospital unless you are visiting for medical reasons.
