Mandatory face coverings

At the THI it is mandatory to wear a face mask. Usually this protection is ensured by so-called community masks.

In view of the current rate of infection, there are no exceptions to this mask order for students. It also applies, for example, during lectures and in the outdoor area of the campus. The mask order applies irrespective of the minimum distance of 1.5m which must still be observed as far as possible.

Recording of attendance

According to the Bavarian Infection Prevention Measures Order, we are responsible for recording the presence of students in lectures, at the service points and in the library. This helps us to trace and interrupt possible chains of infection. We have chosen an electronic system which enables you to check in and out of the rooms by scanning a QR code with your mobile phone. You can find a short manual on Moodle.

Please note: Registration is obligatory and a requirement for participation in face-to-face teaching.

Your data will be protected. It will be encrypted and saved in the computer centre of the Institute for Municipal Data Processing in Bavaria and automatically deleted after four weeks.

You can also register your fellow students. If you have forgotten your mobile phone or if there are technical problems, the lecturer can authorise you to register your attendance retrospectively on the same day using the following link:

Otherwise, the lecturer can expel you from the room if you have not registered.

House ban

At the THI a house ban applies to any individual who meets one of the following criteria:

  1. Individuals diagnosed with COVID-19
  2. Individuals who know they had contact with any individual diagnosed with COVID-19 (contact persons of category I and II) during the past 14 days,
  3. Individuals with symptoms that may suggest an infection with COVID-19, e.g. fever, cough, respiratory problems, loss of sense of taste/smell, sore throat, rhinitis or pain in the limbs,
  4. Individuals who are obliged to go into domestic quarantine according to the currently valid Post-Entry Quarantine Ordinance (EQV)

Due to the rapid changes in the risk areas according to the RKI, we ask you to follow up on these at your own responsibility. It is compulsory to comply with the quarantine regulations.

If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19, we ask you to inform the president or chancellor of the university immediately.

Please note: If you live in or have been to a "Corona hotspot" (over 50 infections/100,000 inhabitants), you may still enter the university grounds as long as you don’t meet the criteria above mentioned.
