The institute and campus management take the rapid spread of the coronavirus COVID-19 very seriously. As advised by our headquarters in Munich, we have decided to enhance our measures to help break the chains of infection and reduce the risk of uncontrolled contagion.
This requires us to reduce the number of people on the campus as much as possible. We are monitoring the situation daily and may adjust the following rules and guidelines in the coming days or weeks.
The following compulsory provisions apply:
Please also note additional federal regulations which have been in force since March 23.
All previous conditions continue to apply:
Employees who have had direct contact with someone known to have a Corona infection have to work from the home office for 14 days - regardless of whether they are showing any symptoms.

Dealing with domestic and domesticated animals:
The Friedrich-Loeffler-Institute and the Robert Koch-Institute have so far not received any information from China or other affected countries that would suggest a special role of pets and livestock. Likewise, there is no evidence that pets, e.g. dogs and cats, are possible carriers.
With these measures, we hope that we can protect you as our valuable employees and guests.
