COVID-19 hygiene and safety requirements
WU buildings – entrance requirements (tested, vaccinated, or recovered) – 2,5-G
WU buildings may only be entered if the entrance requirements (tested, vaccinated, or recovered) are met.
For the checks of your proof of a low epidemiological risk, please always bring both
paper proof (e.g. printed vaccination certificate) as well as
electronically (e.g. pdf on cell phone, Green Pass).
The proof as well as a photo ID must be kept ready and presented at any time upon request.
When do I have to wear a FFP2 mask?
When entering the library building until reaching your study place (incl. group workrooms and carrels).
When leaving your study place.
When collecting books at the library front desk.
When a library card is issued at the library front desk.
This applies to all 3 library branches (Central Library, Library for Law, Library for Social Sciences).
What is considered "proof of a low epidemiological risk" and how long are these proofs valid?
Considered to be proof of a low epidemiologic risk:
1. PCR tests (molecular SARS-CoV-2 tests, like Alles gurgelt!) for SARS-CoV-2 => valid for 48 hours
2. A recovery certificate concerning an infection with SARS-CoV-2 survived in the last 180 days or a physician's confirmation of an infection with SARS-CoV-2 survived in the last 180 days that has been confirmed by molecular analysis.
3. A vaccination certificateconcerning a vaccination against COVID-19 given with a centrally licensed vaccine:
Second shot of a COVID-19 vaccine, administered not more than 360 days previously and with a period of at least 14 days between the first and second vaccination
Vaccination with a one-shot vaccine received at least 22 days but no longer than 270 days ago
A vaccination received at least 21 days after a positive molecular SARS-CoV-2 test result or a vaccination received after obtaining proof of neutralizing antibodies; in such cases, the vaccination must have been received no longer than 360 days ago
An additional vaccination administered not more than 360 days previously, and with a period of at least 120 days between this vaccination and a vaccination as described above
4. An International Vaccination Certificate, in which one of the vaccinations listed in item 3 is entered.
5. A quarantine notice, if issued for a person who has proof of contracting COVID-19 in the 180 days prior to the required test.
6. Evidence of neutralizing antibodies for a period of 90 days.
Test results & proofs shall include at least the following information:
First and last name of the individual tested
Date of birth
Type of proof, type of test if applicable
Date / period of validity
Name of the issuer (e.g. institution, doctor)
What happens if I cannot show a valid proof when entering a WU building?
Persons who cannot provide (valid) proof of a low epidemiologic risk on request must leave the building immediately.
