Information about HAS University of Applied Sciences related to the coronavirus

* Last update 22 February 2022* More information about HAS University of Applied Sciences and the coronavirus can be found on this page.

Most measures will be lifted as of 25 February. HAS University of Applied Sciences follows the national guidelines. This means that as of 25 February, we will abandon the 1.5 metre social distancing measure and wearing face masks. Maximum group sizes will no longer apply and advice on working from home will be relaxed: employees work from home 50% of their time whenever possible. We will also be opening up our buildings as much as possible for physical school activities. In practice, this means that we plan to maintain the current timetables: students and lecturers are welcome outside the timetable for group work or other educational activities. We have already started providing our company training and courses again.

Safe & healthy working at HAS

Safe and healthy working is based on the joint responsibility of all employees, students and course participants within HAS to observe the basic hygiene measures: sneezing/coughing into your elbow, washing your hands regularly, giving each other space and using the available hygiene columns. Daily measures include the cleaning of rooms, workplaces, general areas and toilets, with follow-up rounds to clean contact surfaces.

In addition, we ask employees and students to self-test preventively twice a week, especially if they have no symptoms. We also advise course participants to take a preventive self-test regularly. It can help identify an infection in good time, and prevent the virus from being transmitted to others unnoticed.
