Corona Regulations during the Exam
Written on 03.08.2021 11:28 by Nico Döttling
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 (https://www.uni-saarland.de/en/page/coronavirus/faq.html)
- 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.
- 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).
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...)
