How "3G" works on campus

For the winter semester 2021/22, more face-to-face courses are to be held at the university again. However, participation in such face-to-face courses will only be permitted for fully vaccinated, recovered or tested persons ("3-G" principle). The higher education institutions are thereby obliged to check compliance with this rule. Against this background, random checks will take place.

In addition to the 3-G principle, the regulations regarding the minimum distance (of 1.5 metres) and the wearing of a mouth/nose covering remain valid; furthermore, the infection protection concept of the University of Erfurt must continue to be observed. The following proof is required so that you can take part in all events on campus:

For vaccinated persons
The vaccination must have been carried out completely with a vaccine published on the website of the Paul Ehrlich Institute (www.pei.de/impfstoffe/covid-19) and at least 14 days must have passed since the second vaccination. Proof can be provided via an electronic document (e.g. Corona warning app, CovPass app) or in paper form (EU COVID certificate or vaccination card/vaccination book).

+++ Vaccination certificates presented by international students are not always recognised in Germany. However, those who were vaccinated against COVID-19 abroad with a vaccine approved in Germany can obtain a certificate that is also valid in Germany with their vaccination certificate issued there. This is issued by the medical care centre Dr Kielstein in Erfurt. +++

For convalescents
Recovered persons without vaccination require proof of a positive PCR test or medical or official certificate dating back at least 28 days and a maximum of six months.

For those tested
A rapid antigen test not more than 48 hours ago or a PCR test not more than 48 hours ago is considered proof of testing. A list of test centres in Erfurt can be found at https://www.erfurt.de/ef/de/service/aktuelles/topthemen/coronavirus/138032.html#slot_100_21. In support of this, the University of Erfurt is setting up a rapid test centre on campus in the cloakroom area of the Audimax building from 11 October and initially until 3 December, where students (and lecturers) who have not been vaccinated or genetically tested can carry out a rapid test/self-test under supervision. The result will be certified afterwards. The test is valid for a maximum of 48 hours. The test centre is open from Monday to Thursday from 7.30 to 10 am.
The Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM ) provides information on its Website about which tests are approved. You can also find the so-called self-tests that have been approved thereafter on this Website.

By the way, quick tests will also be available in the cafeteria and in the glass box from 11 October for one euro.

Please get vaccinated before the start of the semester!

To ensure that teaching in the winter semester can take place as much as possible in the presence of students, we urge you - if you have not yet been vaccinated - to get vaccinated immediately. Of course, you can do this now in your home town or, if you are already here, in Erfurt. You can arrange vaccination appointments, for example, via the Thuringia vaccination portal at www.impfen-thueringen.de or with your family doctor. Students and employees of the University of Erfurt also have the opportunity to be vaccinated against Covid-19 on campus on 12 October from 10 am to 3 pm. The date for the follow-up vaccination is then 02 November 2021 (10-15 hrs). BioNTech and Johnson&Johnson vaccines will be provided. Please see our website for more information.
