WU buildings - entrance requirements (tested, vaccinated, or recovered)
WU buildings may only be entered if the entrance requirements (tested, vaccinated, or recovered) are met. One of the following proofs must be presented to enter and remain in WU buildings.
Starting August 15, a vaccination is only valid for entrance at WU if the immunization is complete, i.e. from the day of the 2nd vaccination. This does not apply to vaccines with only one dose. These are accepted for entrance from the 22nd day after the vaccination. The regulations for those who have recovered and those who have been tested remain unchanged.
