Corona aktuell

Corona-Virus / COVID19: as of 14.09.2020

Due to the ongoing corona virus pandemic, the KHM has taken extensive measures based on the regulations of the federal, state and local governments to protect its university members and to contain the spread of infections. The general distance and hygiene rules of the federal and state governments must be strictly observed.

Protected operation: The KHM is in a protected operation. It is secured by hygiene plans that are continuously updated and adapted to the applicable federal and state regulations.
From September 14th there will be a "gate service solution" enabling students to work in the studios, laboratories and technical facilities after prior booking.
1. The gate service is located in the foyer of the auditorium (Filzengraben 2): Mondays-Fridays from 10 a.m.-7p.m.
After confirmation of their booking and presentation of their student ID, students receive an access card programmed for each workstation or an access key, which must be returned to the gatekeeper at the end of the shift / day. If these are not returned, students will be requested by the KHM security service from 7.30 p.m. to leave the KHM and hand over the access card to the security service person. Other access cards remain deactivated.
The students sign the voluntary commitment (compliance with the regulations on occupational health and safety) and declare that they are free of cold and flu symptoms and follow the rules for entering from risk areas Data protection (see 11. below).
Only one person may enter or leave the auditorium foyer. Other people please wait in front of the door. When entering the foyer, mouth and nose covering must be worn and hands must be disinfected.

2. Bookings for work in studios, laboratories and technical facilities:
Students contact the person responsible for the rooms (see list) who manage the occupancy plans. The occupancy plans / calendar can be viewed in real time by the gate service.

3. Teaching hours: Digitally, by phone and/or face to face by appointment.

4. Teaching / seminar registration in WS 2020/21: Classroom teaching takes place wherever possible.
In order to be able to plan the room situation, all students are asked to register by e-mail with the lecturers for the respective seminars by October 2, 2020 (course catalog PDF above). If physical attendance is not possible (e.g. due to visa or travel difficulties), we ask you to contact the lecturer.

5. The Studoffice and the project office can still be reached digitally and by telephone.

6. Central lending: Contactless lending through the respective supervisor and the project office. Please note longer lead times and follow-up times due to the applicable hygiene regulations.

7. The library is only open to members of the KHM from Monday to Thursday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. 10 people can be on site at the same time. The loan works as usual.

8. The cafeteria will remain closed for the time being. Expected opening at the beginning of the winter semester.

9. I feel sick! What do I do?
Make sure to call your general practitioner and stay at home. Your doctor will advise you on how to proceed. Advice is also available on the medical on-call service (Tel. 116 117) or at the Cologne Health Department / Gesundheitsamt (Neumarkt 15 -21, 50667 Cologne, Tel. 0221/221 -33500)
Anyone who is ill should, as a precautionary measure, remain incapable of working at home while any possible infection is being investigated; this is possible for up to three days without presenting a certificate of incapacity for work.
