Corona Regulations during the Exam

Written on 03.08.2021 11:28 by Nico Döttling

Dear Students,

now that the registration for the exam is closed and the exam itself just 3 days away, it is time to remind you of the corona specific regulations. Thus read the following points carefully, taken from the university's corona FAQ (

  1. Medical Face Masks
    It is compulsory to wear medical face masks when moving around within buildings - except when a justified medical certificate is presented. It is thus absolutely necessary for you to bring your own protection mask with you.
  2. What do you have to consider if you have flu-like symptoms?

    In light of the current infection rates in Saarland, persons who have not recently come into contact with someone with a known or suspected SARS-CoV-2 infection and who are showing only mild signs of illness (e.g. a runny nose and feeling only mildly incapacitated) may visit Saarland University sites. The same applies to people who have a known history of exhibiting similar symptoms due to a pre-existing condition, such as hay fever or a pollen allergy. Please refer to the check list for flu-like symptoms

    If, however, a person is feeling seriously unwell, particularly if they are displaying respiratory and/or flu symptoms or other symptoms relevant to COVID-19, they must stay at home and, when necessary, consult a doctor (initially by phone).

  3. Do you have to get tested?
    We strongly advise you to participate in in-person meetings/events with the participants physically present on site only if you have tested negative for the coronavirus (Note: The test result may not be older than 24 hours). An exception to this is participation in face-to-face classes, including (block) seminars and exams, here only people who are tested twice a week should participate. If a person has not been tested, this may not lead to their exclusion from the in-person meeting/event. Testing is subject to Section 5a of the Ordinance on Combating the Coronavirus Pandemic (VO-CP of 7 July 2021). The test result is to be certified by the body carrying out the test.

    (I.e. the university cannot force you to get tested; however, if you are not vaccinated, please be mindful of your fellow men and get tested no more than 3 days before...)
