Corona Information

Outlook for the Winter Semester


After the past online semesters, we are returning to face-to-face teaching as the norm for the winter semester 2021/2022. (Please note the information on your courses in the timetables). This requires, in particular, compliance with the 3G rule and the masking requirement.

The most important regulations for students are summarized below; all detailed information can be found in the infection control concept of the Ostbayerische Technische Hochschule Amberg-Weiden.

3G rule

Access to the university requires

  • The complete vaccination,
  • the proven recovery from Covid, or
  • regular testing (negative test result).

prerequisite. The relevant proof must be presented at any time during the stay at the university as part of controls.

Non-compliance with the 3G rule as well as the mask requirement constitutes an administrative offense in terms of the Infection Protection Measures Ordinance and can be punished with a ban from the premises as well as an additional fine.

A high vaccination rate is the best prerequisite to control the Corona pandemic in the long term and to return to normality. Therefore, we recommend:  Get vaccinated.


Testing for students will be performed free of charge with student ID at local testing centers until Nov. 30, 2021, and a negative test record will be issued.

Under the 3G rule, tested individuals must provide written or electronic negative test evidence regarding SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus infection based on

  • A PCR test, PoC-PCR test, or test by other methods of nucleic acid amplification technique performed two days ago at the earliest,
  • a PoC antigen test performed the day before at the earliest

which otherwise complies with the provisions of the SchAusnahmV.

Mask obligation

Medical masks must always be worn in the university buildings. Due to the better protection, we still recommend FFP2 masks.

In outdoor areas, masks are not compulsory as a matter of principle, but compliance with the minimum distance of 1.5 m is particularly important here.

Provided that a minimum distance of 1.5 m to other persons is safely maintained during a course at the fixed location, no mask obligation applies. 

Contact tracking/self-declaration

Contact tracking of students is done as part of face-to-face teaching by making a QR code available on a room-by-room basis via the university's homepage.

At the beginning of each course, students scan the QR code and register with their identifier. In doing so, students confirm that they have a currently valid 3G credential in accordance with the above requirements, which entitles them to access, when attending the event. The registration takes place in every event, without booking out.

The data will be stored for a period of 4 weeks. The data will be transmitted exclusively for the purpose of providing information upon request and to the competent health authorities. However, this system is not used for attendance monitoring of students with regard to lecture attendance.

Trespassing ban

In principle, persons may not,

  • who show symptoms typical of a SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus infection (typical symptoms of a SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus infection are shortness of breath, new-onset cough, fever and loss of smell or taste),
  • who are subject to a quarantine measure or
  • Who have been confirmed to have a current infection with coronavirus SARS-CoV-2,

do not participate in on-site university activities and do not enter the university (buildings and other enclosed spaces).
