Hygiene Conceptual Framework has been updated

A good response to the SARS-CoV-2 vaccination is based on naive immune cells, whereas pre-existing memory cells are rather disadvantageous, as shown by a research team from the Cluster of Excellence PMI.

Please observe the basic rules of hygiene and conduct as well as information on rapid tests

General requirement to wear face masks will no longer apply in any university building from 26 May 2022

General requirement to wear face masks in Kiel University’s buildings until 25.05.2022.

Isolation obligation ends after five days. Framework hygiene concept updated incl. clarification on home office regulations at CAU.

Extension of compulsory masks on campus

In accordance with the University Board Resolution of 05 April 2022.

Organisation of the summer semester 2022

On 19.03.2022, numerous regulations in the Infection Protection Act expire. These are currently the basis for protective measures at the CAU, directly or indirectly via ordinances of the state of Schleswig-Holstein.

The current course of infection rates makes it possible to relax some of these regulations again. The University Board has now made some changes to the CAU’s Hygiene Conceptual Framework.

3G checks; on-site examinations and lectures; students with children - addition to the free attempt regulation

The suspension of extra-curricular attendance events and the regulations for restricting business trips, initially in place until 30.01.2022, will be extended for the time being until 13.02.2022.

The CAU will not count the winter semester 2021/22 as an actual semester (“Fachsemester”). An additional attempt at the examination will be granted if the type of examination has been replaced by another type of exam that was not provided for in the degree-specific examination regulations.

All examinations must be conducted digitally.

Teaching will be converted to digital teaching from 10.1. onwards, more stringent masking requirements in face-to-face courses, examinations will mainly be conducted digitally, home office will be increased, face-to-face events outside teaching will be prohibited until 30.1. for the time being.

Changes to the 3G proof checks at the CAU

Those who are being treated with TNF alpha blockers for a chronic inflammatory disease probably need a booster vaccination against SARS-CoV-2 earlier than others. A study by the Cluster of Excellence "Precision Medicine in Chronic Inflammation" indicates this.

The University Board has now updated the CAU’s hygiene policy. The changes mainly affect the regulations from the amended Infection Protection Act and the SARS-CoV-2 Occupational Health and Safety Regulation, this entails the obligation to work from home and 3G proof at the workplace.

Validity of negative lateral flow tests, Obligation to wear face masks, 3G in libraries, Non-curricular or non-teaching events

The CAU is again setting up an e-mail list for vaccination offers e.g. from CAU's medical service.

As of today, you will find latest updates on the Corona website about the requirements for all employees to proof their 3G status; they will come into effect on November 24.

The federate state government of Schleswig-Holstein has decided not to tighten the regulations currently in place. This means that Kiel University will continue to operate in teaching, studying, conducting research, offering administration and services as before.

Please note: New location: Olshausenstraße 75 / S1, R.17 | 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (last admission)
