The University will see how the situation develops and expects to be able to provide more study places in the next few weeks.

Regulations on In-Person Work Meetings Modified

July 7th, 2020 | by

The University has modified the existing regulation which stipulated that work meetings are only possible in exceptional cases. If the supervisor(s) deems in-person meetings to be essential on the basis of the content of the discussion, such meetings are permitted in compliance with the known hygiene regulations. In all other cases, the University still recommends holding meetings online instead. So-called “hybrid solutions” (partly in person; partly online) are also possible. If larger meeting rooms are required, employees should consider contacting the central room booking service (https://www9.rwth-aachen.de/go/id/bqqj). To clear up any questions regarding the hygiene regulations, contact the Occupational and Radiation Protection staff unit (https://www9.rwth-aachen.de/go/id/bqpt).

In this context, it should be noted that the guidelines for interviews have been adapted.

Regulations on Travel and Visits From Abroad

July 7th, 2020 | by

The University will not approve any business trips to risk areas at present. If an employee returns from a country that has been subsequently classified as a risk area, and if the local health department does not issue a quarantine order or shortens the quarantine period for special reasons, the employee must still work from home for the first week following their return.

The Crisis Management Team urgently appeals to all employees to refrain from personal travel to risk areas when it is not absolutely necessary. If, however, employees go on such trips, the respective superiors should be informed in advance so that work arrangements can be planned ahead of time. If, after returning from the risk area, the local health department does not issue a quarantine order or shortens the quarantine period for special reasons, the employee must still work from home for the first week following their return.
