Bei Rückkehr aus dem Inland gilt:

There is no longer a basic testing and quarantine obligation for returnees without symptoms indicating Covid-19 disease.

However, if returnees show symptoms, they are obliged to immediately go into quarantine. The most frequently recorded symptoms of a Covid-19 disease are cough, fever, rhinitis, as well as loss of smell and taste (as of 16.10.2020, source RKI). It is therefore important to seek medical advice if symptoms are unclear or if you are uncertain. Further information can be found in the DLP under CORONA Special Information > Basics > Regulations in case of cold symptoms and on the website of the Robert Koch Institute.

The obligatory waiting period to be observed before attending a course in attendance is no longer applicable and at the same time the Rectorate continues to recommend that a waiting period be observed.
