In Bavaria, strict measures and requirements in order to control of the novel coronavirus (Sars-CoV-2) have been in force since mid-March. All relevant information from the Bavarian State Government can be found here.
In general, a prudent and level-headed behavior is important in the current situation.
Therefore, please inform yourself regularly about the current status on the websites of the Robert Koch-Institute, the Bavarian State Ministry of Health, the Bavarian State Office for Health and Food Safety as well as the Federal Foreign Office.
If a corona infection is suspected, all university members are requested to contact a physician or the on-call service of „Kassenärztlicher Bereitschaftsdienst“ (phone: 116 117) immediately by telephone, and discuss on how to proceed further. The same applies if you have or have had contact with a person infected with the corona virus.
For library use and examinations, some LMU buildings will be gradually reopened from July 8, 2020. All other matters are primarily handled electronically or by telephone. In individual cases, individual access to the building will be possible by appointment. In special cases, exceptions will be made, e.g. for areas with tasks in human and veterinary patient care and research.
Furthermore, persons returning from certain foreign countries must place themselves in domestic quarantine for 14 days after entering Bavaria. They are obliged to inform the competent district administrative authority. Further information as well as the classification of countries can be found in the „Einreisequarantäneverordnung“. These persons are not allowed to enter any building of the university during the quarantine period. In addition, sick persons, especially those with symptoms of respiratory disease or with unspecific general symptoms, are not allowed to enter the university buildings. The same applies to persons who have been in contact with persons with COVID-19 within the last 14 days (contact persons of cat. I and II).
It is strongly recommended to follow the usual hygienic measures which also protect against an influenza infection:
• Refrain from shaking hands.
• Maintain a good hand hygiene, and wash your hands with sufficient soap and water.
• Observe the coughing/sneezing etiquette (arm bend instead of the hand).
• Use tissues only once, and dispose of them safely.
• Keep a distance of 1 to 2 meters from other persons, and in particular, avoid close contact with persons who have a respiratory infection.

For all types of events and in all buildings of LMU, the Guidelines for the Implementation of the Bavarian Infection Control Measures Ordinance at Bavarian Universities in conjunction with the Supplementary Regulations of LMU apply.
