As the number of new SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus infections per 100,000 population within seven days (7-day incidence) exceeds 35, the following amended rules will apply from 9 September 2021 while visiting the University Library:

3G principle

When entering the libraries, the 3G rule applies, which means that all users must prove that they are fully vaccinated, recovered or tested negative.
Proof of 3G:

  • Full vaccination (at least 14 days after the second vaccination) can be proven with the vaccination certificate, an app (CovPass app or Corona warning app) or the EU digital COVID certificate.
  • You are considered recovered if you can provide proof for recovered persons of the presence of a previous Covid19 infection confirmed by PCR test that has since cleared. The infection must have occurred at least 28 days and not more than six months ago.
  • A negative PCR test (max. 48 hours old) or a negative rapid antigen test (max. 24 hours old) is possible as test evidence. Both tests must have been carried out and certified by a recognised testing centre; the result of a private rapid test is not sufficient. Pupils are treated equally to those tested.

Mandatory masking

It is compulsory to wear a medical mask (surgical mask) in all library buildings, and the mask requirement continues to apply at the learning desks.
Learning desks in the Main Library, the Branch Libraries and the Library Law (02JU) must be booked online via the reservation system.

Please be aware that the University Library checks compliance with the rules. All proofs are only valid together with a passport/student ID.
