FAQ for employees

1. What should I do if I, as an employee, have symptoms of Covid-19 disease or have tested positive for Covid-19?

The Ministry of Health recommends wearing a mask indoors in the event of an existing infection with Covid-19. In the event of incapacity for work, a sick note must be submitted to the supervisor and the Human Resources Department, including a certificate of incapacity for work. Currently, the physician is authorized to issue a certificate of incapacity for work in the event of cold symptoms after consultation by telephone. If the doctor does not determine that the employee is unfit for work, there is no illness that is relevant under labor law.

Special isolation, testing or reporting obligations no longer exist for work at the university.

2. I belong to the risk group. How do I behave correctly? Where can I get advice?

Advice can be provided by the attending physician. The company doctor and the occupational health and safety department can also provide support. Otherwise, the usual protective measures apply: Booster vaccination, consistent wearing of masks, keeping your distance.


3. What do I do as a supervisor when an employee exhibits symptoms of Covid 19 disease?

The supervisor has a duty of care to all employees and, with that in mind, should address the individual's ability to work.
