Study and work safely in the winter semester 2021/22

Corona Update from 18 October 2021

In the winter semester 2021/22, courses (including internships and examinations) will be held predominantly in presence. According to the current Thuringian regulation (§ 22), the 3-G principle (vaccinated/genetically tested) applies.

The negative test result for the presence of coronavirus infection may be provided by a rapid antigen test or PCR test performed no more than 72 hours previously. Self-tests are only recognized if they are carried out under supervision at the university. For this purpose, the TU Ilmenau offers supervised self-tests on Mondays and Wednesdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the IBZ, Internationales Begegnungszentrum, Ehrenbergstraße 38. The results of the self-tests are documented in a lecture hall passport. It serves exclusively as proof of the requirements according to § 22 of the above-mentioned Thuringian Ordinance use outside the TU Ilmenau is currently not planned. Up to two rapid antigen tests per week are made available to students and employees free of charge. Students receive these tests as part of the self-testing offer.

According to the Thuringian ordinance, participation in a face-to-face teaching event in violation of the 3-G principle is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine, which can be reported to the police and expelled. More detailed information on the implementation of the 3-G principle can be found in the university's new infection protection concept  (German only, item 10).

In addition to the 3-G principle, the general regulations regarding the minimum distance (of 1.5 meters) and the wearing of a mouth/nose covering (if the minimum distance is not observed) as well as the  contact tracing measures using QRonitron continue to apply to all presence events. In the event of infection, this serves to quickly identify contact persons and thus protect all university members.

We strongly recommend that all students and employees make use of the vaccination offers in order to protect themselves and others and to make attendance and largely normal campus life possible. Students and university members who would like to be vaccinated before the start of the semester can
