Corona update: regulations from 31.01.2022

Dear members of the University,

In light of the current infection rates, the existing regulations for the CAU in studying, teaching, research and other university areas will also remain in effect beyond 31.01.2022. 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 University Board hopes that more attendance activities will be possible as from mid February.

All regulations and further information for individual areas and target groups can be found on the the CAU’s corona website. The currently applicable quarantine regulations for employees and for students are also provided there. We would like to provide you with more orientation with the quarantine information, because the regulations which have been changed by the government and implemented in Schleswig-Holstein require a lot of individual responsibility from those affected.

There are also changes to the 3G proof as a result of nationwide specifications. The RKI has reduced the validity of ‘recovered’ status from six to three months. In addition, those vaccinated with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine require a second dose with an mRNA vaccine. The ‘fully vaccinated’ status is then achieved afterwards (+ 14 days). Students and staff affected by this must therefore present a negative lateral flow test at 3G checks at the university until they have achieved the fully vaccinated status. Handouts about 3G checks for teaching events and exams, as well as information about 3G proof at the workplace are currently being updated and will be made available on the CAU’s corona website shortly.

If you have not yet received your booster vaccination, please use the existing offers at several locations, many of which do not require registration (

For more detailed information, please have a look at the extensive information supplied on the CAU’s corona website. This is continually updated and offers checklists, explanations about applying the current rules and concrete information about studies, work and teaching operations:

With best regards and stay well!
