As a rule, teaching in the winter semester is to take place on campus again. According to the current situation, only persons who have been vaccinated, recovered or tested (3G) are allowed to participate in classroom courses on campus. For now, the regulations of the Corona Protection Ordinance are in effect until 17 September 2021.
The home office and the campus workplace at TU Dortmund University are equally valid work locations. Which place of work is chosen in each individual case depends on the necessities of the accordingly involved tasks and is determined by the superiors in consultation with the employees.
Medical masks (surgical or FFP2 mask) must be worn in the buildings. During the teaching events, even at the individual seat the face mask must not be taken off. The conditions of the general hygiene concept as well as the approved area-specific hygiene concepts apply to any operations taking place in attendance. For employees, TU Dortmund University offers self-tests for home use. It is planned to continue the PCR pool tests as part of a research project, allowing employees to take them voluntarily in addition.
