To reduce the spread of the coronavirus, the instructions of the Robert Koch Institute to prevent infection must be observed:
The ban on gatherings (German) must also be observed outside of university buildings. It is only permitted to be in public places alone, with family members who live in the same household, or with one other person who does not live in the same household. When encountering others, a minimum distance of 1.5 metres is to be maintained. Public activities that are conducive to endangering this distancing rule, such as celebrations, grilling or picnics, are prohibited on Goethe University campuses, regardless of the number of people involved.
University buildings at the Westend, Bockenheim, Riedberg and Ginnheim locations are still closed to the public, but they may be used by university members under strict observance of the RKI standards. This applies to all buildings in which work is carried out that is indispensable for the organisation of teaching, research and administration. These buildings may be entered using card key locks or staffed main entrances. Access is regulated individually at each location (e.g., through existing closures, lists with the porters).
Several university sport activities are meanwhile taking place again on site at the Ginnheim sport campus. In particular, team and contact sports with up to 10 people are again possible. The swimming pool has also been reopened. The Zentrum für Hochschulsport (ZfH) (Centre for University Sports) also continues to offer online sports classes.
