What should people who have recently spent time in risk areas do?

People who have recently returned to Germany from a risk area are advised to remain at home for 14 days as a precaution and to inform the responsible health department.

This recommendation is in place for the duration of the (partial) travel warning of the Foreign Office. If study progress or scientific projects are jeopardised by the voluntary quarantine, then supervisors and advisors can be contacted per email or telephone in order to work out a solution.

Whenever reasonably possible, all forms of home office can be used. Time credits should be applied. If no other options are available, paid leave should be granted. Staff are requested to contact their supervisors on a regular basis.
