Corona hy­giene reg­u­la­tions

The HNU hygiene concept implements the regulations of the Bavarian-wide binding framework concept for universities (linked on the right site) at HNU.

Corona hy­giene reg­u­la­tions

3G rule:
Anyone who has been vaccinated, tested or has recovered may enter the university (3G rule). Compliance with the 3G rule will be randomly checked by security staff or university employees. Therefore, carry appropriate proof and show it when asked. 

Sampling will be carried out at random. 

If you are found to be in breach of the 3G regulations, you will be denied access to the buildings or asked to leave the university buildings immediately. Please note that if you do so, you will be in breach of the regulations and may be subject to a fine. The security service and HNU employees are authorised to record your contact details in this regard.

Prohibition to enter:
Persons are not permitted to enter the university if they

  • do not comply with the 3G rules,
  • knowingly had contact with a confirmed COVID-19 patient in the last 14 days (not applicable to medical and nursing staff with protected contact with COVID-19 patients),
  • have symptoms that may indicate COVID-19 disease, according to the RKI, e.g. fever, dry cough, breathing problems, loss of sense of taste/odour, sore throat and limbs, or
  • in accordance with the currently valid Entry Quarantine Ordinance (EQV) are obliged to enter domestic quarantine or are subject to an ordered quarantine measure.

Test evidence:
A written or electronic negative test evidence of infection with SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus shall be obtained from tested persons based on  

  1. a PCR test, PoC-PCR test or a test using other methods of nucleic acid amplification technique carried out within 48 hours, 
  2. a PoC antigen test that was carried out no more than 24 hours ago, 

which otherwise complies with the provisions of the COVID 19 Protective Measures Exemption Regulation.

A self-test under supervision is not offered by the university.

    Positive test:
    If you have received a positive Covid 19 test, please contact vorsorge[at]hnu[dot]de (opens in a new window). The aim is to detect and break chains of infection at HNU.

    AHA rule:
    Keep your distance - observe hygiene - wear a mask in everyday life (Abstand halten - Hygiene beachten - im Alltag Maske tragen)

    Please do not stay inside and on the grounds of the university longer than necessary. If possible, use the telephone or digital counselling services of the service facilities.

    Outdoor area:
    Maintain a minimum distance of 1.5 m.

    Not allowed in front of the building - smoke only at the designated smoking area. Keep a minimum distance of 1.5 m.

    Single use

    Masks are compulsory:

    • Masks are compulsory in all buildings at HNU (OP or FFP2 mask).
    • In the movement and meeting areas of corridors and corridors as well as when entering and leaving rooms and buildings, masks are generally compulsory.
    • During all events, except at fixed seating and standing positions, provided that a minimum distance of 1.5 m from other persons is reliably maintained.

    Regardless of the obligation to wear masks, groups must be avoided in areas where people move around and meet.

    Laboratory rooms: 
    Wherever possible, work and operating equipment must be used in a person-specific manner or cleaned/disinfected before each use.

    Club rooms: 
    The club rooms can be used for student working groups. The general rule is: 

    • At a distance of 1.5m and regular ventilation: no mask.
    • At a distance of less than 1.5m: wear a mask!

    Printer rooms: 
    Accessible with compulsory masks (maximum one person)

    The Augsburg Student Union has its own hygiene concept. All persons are required to adhere to these rules.

    Learning places: 
    Learning places are available in the library by prior reservation.

    Ventilate rooms regularly: Impulse ventilation every 20 minutes for 5 to 10 minutes; rooms with technical ventilation are supplied with fresh air controlled by CO2.

    Rooms are cleaned regularly.

    Contact survey with Qroniton: 
    In order to track chains of infection by the health authorities, the data of all laboratory visiters (each event) are documented. Surname, first name, address, telephone number, period of stay and year of birth are documented. Participants without a smartphone can register as guests through another participant.
    Rooms are provided with a QR code. The QR code is scanned to establish contact.
    The participation of all members of the university in the contact data collection is obligatory and a prerequisite for participation in the reference and practical work. The summary attendance is randomly checked by the learner.

    Pregnant women:
    Pregnant women are currently not allowed to visit events in order to avoid exposing themselves and their unborn child unnecessarily to the risk of Covid-19 infection and, if necessary, treatment. This is an official requirement that the university must comply with. If you are pregnant, please contact vorsorge[at]hnu[dot]de (opens in a new window) for advice regarding your studies.

    Corona Warnapp: 
    Use is recommended.

    Excursions and events:
    Separate hygiene concepts must be drawn up for excursions and events.
    Here you will find a template (in German) (opens in a new window)

    Legal consequences:
    The teachers are responsible for ensuring that the hygiene rules are observed in the classroom and have the right to enforce them.

    Failure to comply with the rules will result in expulsion. 

    Furthermore, non-observance will be reported to the police as an administrative offence.

    Safe in - safe out: with Qroniton

    Due to the coronavirus crisis, the contact details of participants must also be recorded at our premises, at places where people meet.

    At the HNU, the browser-based IT solution QRONITON is used for this contact data collection. QR codes are scanned to record which persons have been at the same place at the same time in order to trace chains of infection. The data is encrypted on the user's device directly in the browser and is only stored encrypted on the server, thus protecting personal data from access.

    How to

    Registration with HNU campus identification

    1. Scan the QR code.
    2. Registration in the browser of the smartphone by entering the HNU user ID and the telephone number. Both are encrypted directly on your device.

    Registration without HNU campus identification / guest access
