Corona Regulations Update:

The regulations for home isolation in the event of a Corona infection were changed effective 16.11.2022. A new Corona occupational health and safety regulation came into force on 01.10.2022. Based on this, the university management has adopted an updated hygiene concept. The most important changes are:

  1. The domestic isolation obligation for persons tested positive for the corona virus is no longer applicable; a medical face mask (surgical mask) or an FFP2 mask must be worn outside the home. Voluntary self-isolation and working in a home office is strongly recommended.
  2. The operational hygiene concept describes general protective measures that apply throughout LMU. The institutions are obliged to check by means of an individual risk assessment whether additional protective measures are necessary in their area. The protective measures taken must be documented.
  3. It is recommended that medical masks or FFP2 masks continue to be worn if close contact (without a minimum distance of 1.5 m) with other persons takes place (e.g., personal conversation, prolonged presence of several persons indoors). If the decentralized risk assessment shows that the minimum distance of 1.5 m is not only briefly exceeded (close contact) due to the activity (e.g. joint work on equipment, assembly work) and technical (e.g. ventilation to protect against infection) and organizational (e.g. reduction of room occupancy) protective measures are not sufficient to protect employees, medical face masks (surgical masks) or FFP2 masks must be worn.
  4. Employees who perform work involving close contact with other persons and who cannot wear a mask while doing so for work-related reasons must be offered a free weekly antigen self-test. The same applies to students in practical courses (e.g. laboratory practicals).
  5. Necessary masks and antigen self-tests are to be financed by the respective institutions. Procurement is done centrally by the Office of Occupational Safety and Sustainability.
  6. Until April 07, 2023, people can continue to work from home on a voluntary basis, provided this is technically feasible and the arrangement does not impair proper service.

On this website, LMU Munich provides information and lists current measures in relation to the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).

LMU's ability to function in research, teaching and administration is a top priority, as is the health of its employees and students. Nevertheless, the measures described below will lead to delays and complications in the faculties and the central university administration. We ask for your understanding for this and will – together with the faculties and central administration – try to find appropriate solutions in each individual situation.

Please note that the infection process can change at any time and plans and decisions must always be adapted to the current situation.
