Updated Regulations on Self-Tests, Home Office, and Curfew

April 27th, 2021 | by

Based on the current regulations due to the federal “emergency brake”, the RWTH Rectorate and the Crisis Management Team have decided on the following measures:

Studies and Teaching

  • Courses and exam sessions will continue to be held in the previously established formats. Excursions can still not take place.
  • From now on, all students and employees attending lab courses at RWTH must be offered a self-test for each day they are on site. The necessary tests can be ordered free of charge from the RWTH Purchasing Portal. The AStA Students’ Committee, the Crisis Management Team, and the Rectorate strongly urge all members to consistently make use of this offer every single day they are on site at RWTH.
  • The Dean’s Office of the Faculty of Medicine continues to regulate the formats in the Medicine and Dentistry degree programs.

University Operations

  • The work-from-home arrangements already in place will be extended through June 30, 2021.
  • If employees have to perform essential work on site at RWTH during curfew, a corresponding form is available for download in the Forms Database. Please have this form signed by the head of the respective university institution or their deputy. Please note that a certificate will generally not be necessary as far as we currently know, but an adequate declaration will suffice.
  • Please refer to the Family Services Center or the relevant personnel department for advice if you have any questions about childcare.

You will be notified of any new information as soon as possible once it is available.
