The colour of the corona traffic light at the University of Graz remains red until further notice. The current regulations concerning home office and teaching online thus remain in force. Classes are to be held in distance except for laboratory, excursions and practical exercises. Exams can take place in presence. There is a general obligation to wear a mask in teaching rooms as well as on the corridors. It is recommended to wear FFP2 masks and to keep a distance of two meters.
Classes in blocks and in small groups as well as certain exams can be attended in presence from 26 April on, even if the Corona traffic light of the University of Graz is still red. A necessary precondition is that all participants present a valid Covid test or a certificate confirming that they have overcome the disease.

The test result will be delivered via e-mail after about fifteen minutes and remains valid for 48 hours.
