HTWK Leipzig

Important notice concerning the outbreak of the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2)

Due to current developments regarding the occurence of infections, HTWK Leipzig will reduce classroom teaching and return to hybrid formats. Students will be informed about their classes by the contact person at their respective faculty. University buildings are open for the public and for students.

The hygiene concept was updated on 11 November 2021 and applies until further notice:

  • 3G-rule applies to all university buildings and proof has to be presented upon request. 3G – “Geimpft, Genesen, Getestet” translates to VRT – vaccinated, recovered, tested and means that persons entering HTWK buildings must be able to provide confirmation that they are either fully vaccinated or recently recovered from an infection with COVID-19. If they are neither vaccinated nor recovered, they need to bring a negative test result no older than 24 hours. Testing is possible at the testing station in room G115 in Geutebrück-building.
  • Students and visitors who are attending classes or events in the university buildings need to  register their contact details via the provided digital registration (QR codes).
  • Wearing a mouth-nose-cover in all common areas of the university is mandatory for everyone.
  • Please keep a distance of at least 1.5 metres to other people if possible. Furthermore, direct physical contact is to be avoided (i.e. no hand-shaking, no hugging) and personal contact is to be minimized.

According to the regulations issued by the Free State of Saxony, all students and staff who enter Saxony from designated coronavirus risk areas have to register their entry online and go to their apartment immediately to self-quarantine. There are exceptions to the quarantine regulations for persons who are either completely vaccinated or have recovered from an infection with COVID-19.
