COVID-19: The current semester

For the University of Innsbruck, the health of all university employees remains a top priority! The Rector's team is concerned to protect staff and students at the University from possible Corona infections as best as possible. In this article we inform you about the measures taken in connection with the Covid 19 pandemic. Please inform yourself regularly and adhere to the safety measures and hygiene guidelines. 

Current recommendations

For the time being, no more COVID-19 measures are in effect at the University of Innsbruck. However, the following recommendations still apply:

  • Common safety precautions & hygiene procedures (including hand hygiene, disinfection of surfaces, regular ventilation, etc.).
  • If you have signs of Covid-19 infection, stay home and report immediately to authorities as well as to corona@uibk.ac.at(in cc arbeitsmedizin@uibk.ac.at) in case of a positive test result. 
  • Also report infections in the same household
  • Employees and students tested positive for Covid-19are still not allowed to return to the university (even if symptom-free)! 
  • Recommended minimum distance: 1m
  • Recommendation: Wear a FFP2-mask, especially on common areas in the building and when meeting other people. This recommendation applies especially when distances cannot be kept or the situation as a whole makes it necessary! 

Please also always refer to the latest Rector´s team mailing (Coronavirus: Update Sept. 29th, 2022)
