Global covid infections continue to skyrocket; a trend from which Germany is not exempt. Rest assured that the university’s covid crisis team continues to meet weekly to ensure the safety of our students and staff whilst maintaining face-to-face teaching and communication where possible. Given the current situation, regular teaching and examination formats are deemed safe under the premise that hygiene regulations and recommendations are adhered to. It is of utmost importance that absence in the case of mandatory attendance due to quarantine be excused to ensure just treatment of our pupils.
Students unable to fulfil 2G requirements are, as of the time of writing, permitted to present an antigen rapid test in lieu of a PCR test if necessary. The aforementioned is the fruit of a letter sent by the Student Parliament to the Bavarian state government concerning the limitations of the 2G / 3G + rules imposed by said Μinistry.
