In view of the current worrying conditions in intensive care units – especially at the University Hospital Erlangen – theFriedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) has decided in consultation with deans, deans of studies and student representatives to introduce the 2G rule for its teaching in presence. According to this rule, only vaccinated or recovered persons will be able to participate in face-to-face courses at FAU in the future. This should not only serve the safety of students and teachers, but also help a recent lockdown in the presence operation of universities and colleges.

2G applies from November 15, 2021 – with a transition period until November 22: Only students and faculty with 2G status (i.e. vaccinated or recovered) may enter the teaching rooms (lecture halls and seminar rooms). An exception is made for the university library, CIP pools, study rooms and self-study areas. Unvaccinated students may continue to study properly

If there is an individual among the registered students for a course who is unvaccinated or non-recovered, hybrid formats shall be used so that vaccinated students can continue to study in attendance and non-2G students can continue to study properly. They can follow the content either via synchronous transmission or via recordings (which may already exist). Only where a hybrid format is not feasible should instructors switch to a fully online format.

For practical events (such as in music and sports) or laboratory exercises, 3G still applies.
