Outlook on the winter semester
The Bavarian state government passed new Corona rules on August 31, 2021. With the 3G regulation and mask requirement, we can finally return to face-to-face teaching after three online semesters.
Access to the university requires full vaccination, recovery from infection, or regular testing (validity PCR test: 48 hours, PoC antigen test and self-test under supervision: 24 hours). The corresponding proofs must be presented during the stay at the university within the scope of controls.
Non-compliance with the 3G rule as well as the mask requirement can be punished with a house ban and additionally with a fine.
Note: Tests are carried out and confirmed free of charge for students with student ID at the official testing stations until November 30, 2021. Opening hours of the nearest testing station "Auf der Schanz 39": Mon. - Fri. from 08:30 - 12:00 a.m. and 14:00 - 15:00 p.m. without prior registration.
However, a high vaccination rate is the best prerequisite for controlling the Corona pandemic in the long term and returning to normality. Therefore, according to our motto "Study safe - vaccinated safe": Get vaccinated. You can find an overview of the locations of the vaccination services of the city of Ingolstadt here.
In this way, we will re-establish direct on-site exchange and togetherness as an important and valuable part of studying, research, teaching and administration. Online lectures are to supplement the offer.
Mandatory mask wearing
In order to comply with the mandatory mask-wearing, at least medical face masks ("surgical masks") or FFP2 masks have to be worn in all buildings on university property. Masks are no longer required in outdoor areas of the university. Here, it is still necessary to comply with the hygiene regulations, in particular the observance of the distance.
Attention: During the examinations, masks are still mandatory for all participants. Due to the low incidences, wearing a medical mask instead of the FFP2 mask is allowed during the test.
At the THI a house ban applies to any individual who meets one of the following criteria:
- Individuals diagnosed with COVID-19
- 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,
- 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,
- 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.
