Status update of May 14, 2021
Dear employees and guests,
With the current amendment to the state's Corona Ordinance, Baden-Württemberg is adapting the general regulations and the emergency brake regulation to the national requirements of the federal government's amended Infection Protection Act. Since May 9, relaxed Corona restrictions apply to fully vaccinated or recovered persons. The corresponding federal regulation was published with a revised regulation by the state of Baden-Württemberg on May 14. Accordingly, the state government has set various opening steps linked to the seven-day incidence and to a specific period. From May 15 already, relaxations are allowed in leisure and tourism.
Please move the mouse over the diagram to display the seven-day incidences per 100,000 inhabitants for the districts of Tübingen and Reutlingen. The current data are continuously provided by the RKI.
Employers and employees in Tübingen are committed to perform weekly Corona quick tests, starting April 12.
Please refer to the instructions emailed to you on April 9. The information contains more details regarding where to pick up your test kits, where to perform the test, and the procedure of individual reporting. The city´s Office of Public Order imposes heavy fines on individuals and employers in case of violations. Therefore, please comply to this testing requirement without compromise.
There is a mask obligation in cars (medical mask or FFP2-/KN95-/N95-mask) for all occupants, if persons from outside the household are in the vehicle. Couples who do not live together are considered one household.
In all areas where a medical mask or FFP2/KN95/N95 mask must be worn, this requirement also applies to children. Young children up to 5 years of age continue to be exempt from the mask requirement. Please also remind that the regular requirements for wearing masks remain in place.
Anyone entering Tübingen from another district and wishing to visit retail stores there must present a negative Corona rapid test. Only an official daily certificate by the city of Tübingen is valid. It is handed out at mobile test stations in downtown Tübingen.
However, anyone who has Corona-specific symptoms should not come to one of the test mobiles, but is asked to contact their family doctor or the health authorities immediately.

Since Monday, January 25, 2021, there are important federal changes in the mask-wearing regulations:
The wearing of medical, including surgical masks (DIN EN 14683:2019-10) or FFP2 (DIN EN 149:2001) respectively masks of the standards KN95/N95 are mandatory in public areas. This applies in particular to:
Children up to 14 years of age are exempt from this regulation; they can continue to wear the mouth-nose protection that was previously required (everyday mask). Children up to the age of five are exempt from the mask requirement.
We would like to emphasize that we will only be able to maintain the same level of activity on campus if everyone really follows the current rules.
The obligation to wear a mouth-and-nose covering in the institute buildings and the applicable distance regulations remain in force.
Further information on events and meetings:
Not only business, but also private trips abroad should be avoided. This applies in particular to the risk areas declared by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI). In justified exceptional cases, permission must be obtained from your supervisor.
The Max-Planck-Haus is open to guests. Please note, however, that it may NOT be used for quarantine purposes.
Children on the Tübingen campus are required to wear masks from the age of six years. All regulations of occupational safety and the individual duty of supervision must be observed.
