+++ 14 April In the Corona traffic light, 19 April was set as the date for a possible switch from red to yellow status. Due to the currently still high infection figures, the university management is refraining from a switchover, i.e. teaching, research and work in the administration will continue to take place under the currently applicable conditions (cf. Corona traffic light). The next date for a possible switchover in the summer semester of 2021 is 17 May.

+++ 31 March  From 6 April participation in attendance practical courses on university premises is only possible with a daily test for the presence of an infection with SARS-CoV-2 (rapid, self or PRC test in the sense of the SächsCoronaSchVO of 29.03.2021). The test result must be negative. The students concerned will be informed via their teachers. Further information in the Corona traffic light.

+++ 25 February At the start of the summer semester 2021 status red on the Corona traffic lights will continue to apply. A phased plan for exiting the respective traffic light phases has been adopted

Staged plan names dates for switching the Corona traffic light

The university management has adopted a phased plan for the exit from the respective traffic light phases. On two dates, a switchover of the Corona traffic light should be possible: On 19 April, after checking the prerequisites (incidence value < 50), a switch to the next status yellow can take place. The next date for a changeover is 17 May, if necessary, to the green status (incidence value <  35). One week before each of the two dates, all university members will be informed about the planned changes by e-mail and on the website.
