Below you will find the latest information about Covid 19 measures at the FH Campus Wien.
Since 1st of August restrictions replace the isolation, if infected with Covid-19. Those who have no symptoms and feel healthy are therefore allowed to leave their own homes wearing FFP2 masks, and may also work or study. However, visiting vulnerable settings such as nursing homes or hospitals is still not permitted.
FH Campus Wien should continue to be a safe place to study, research and work. We therefore urgently request students, employees, teachers and researchers as well as visitors who have tested positive for Covid-19 not to come to FH Campus Wien - even if they do not have any symptoms. An infection must still be reported. In the case of study locations at hospitals, the regulations applicable there must be observed.
Anyone who is infected and feels ill stays at home. Sick leave is taken in the same way as with any other illness and is to be reported as an absence via the absences notification in the portal for students or as sick leave to the head of the degree program or course or to the supervisor and personnel accounting department. With Covid-19, doctors can issue sick notes by telephone as well.
Students continue to report a positive test result via the absences notification in the portal for students, teachers and researchers as well as employees report to the head of their degree program or course or supervisor as well as to the personnel accounting department. Proof of a positive test result from an officially recognized testing center is sufficient for this purpose. Even if someone is symptom-free and feels healthy despite the infection: We urgently request that, if possible, students do not attend their courses or examinations, teachers and researchers change their courses to an online format or an alternative and work from home, and employees work from home. In this case, the positive test result from an officially recognized testing center is considered sufficient proof for students not to attend a course or not to take an exam.
We are aware that this may lead to delays in the progress of studies. Therefore, in justified exceptional cases and in coordination with the head of their degree program or course, it is possible for students to come to FH Campus Wien, even with a positive Covid-19 test result. For teachers and researchers as well as employees, coming to FH Campus Wien despite a positive Covid-19 test result is only possible in coordination with the head of the degree program or course or their supervisor. When coming to the FH Campus Wien, the FFP2 mask must be worn permanently and may not be removed at any time. Consequently, consumption, e.g. in the cafeteria, canteen or break rooms, is not permitted.
The restrictions apply automatically with every positive antigen or PCR test. The authorities no longer issue individual notifications. This means that the restrictions last for a maximum of ten days from the taking of your test. After five days, you can be exempted from the restrictions by means of a PCR test. After the expiration of the restrictions or after the test to be exempted from day 5 (with receipt of a negative PCR test result or alternatively a Ct value >= 30) you are then allowed to come to FH Campus Wien again.
For larger gatherings, especially for events and graduations, or courses with physical contact, we recommend wearing an FFP2 mask.
