Recommendation on the wearing of face masks in buildings of the UR

At present, persons in the buildings of the UR are obliged to wear a mouth-nose cover (MNB) in communally used rooms.  In addition, a MNB must be worn in face-to-face meetings - for example, work meetings, workshops, meetings, conferences, etc. - as soon as more than two people meet. The only exceptions to this rule are persons who cannot wear a MNB for health reasons.

This applies to:

  • employees,
  • students,
  • Members of organizations and companies that use the buildings of the UR
  • external service providers, suppliers, cooperation partners as well as all other persons staying in the buildings of UR.

The UR does not provide protective masks. In case of business needs, protective masks can be purchased from the Uni-Shop and financed from the department's funds. Central funds are not available.
