Information on library opening at Corona times

UPDATE October 8th 2021:
As of October 11th, access to the library at both locations is limited to people with valid “3G” proof (tested, vaccinated, recovered). The proof is checked when entering the campus or the building at Heinrich-von-Bibra-Platz location.
Self testing is not allowed.
Masks must be worn when sitting at the desks or in group study rooms. You can remove the mask temporarily in the readers' cafés for eating or drinking.

The following rules apply for children:
Children under the age of six do not need a “3G” proof and are not required to wear masks.
Children over the age of six – or when they have started school – need a test certificate (e.g. the school test booklet) when entering the Campus or building at Heinrich-von-Bibra-Platz location and are required to wear masks.

Compliance with the basic rules (DHM formula: keeping distance, hygiene rules and masking up) continues to protect you from infection.
