Medical mask requirement for students

Change in the new Corona regulation regarding the wearing of masks by students/examiners.

In accordance with the latest Coronavirus ordinance of the Ministry of Science regarding study programs of March 7, 2021, the obligatory wearing of a medical face mask (“surgical mask” preferably certified according to DIN EN 14683:2019-10) or higher protection that meets the requirements of the standards FFP2 (DIN EN 149:2001), KN95, N95 or a comparable standard is obligatory with immediate effect in all buildings and areas of the University of Stuttgart. In particular, this means that, with immediate effect, face masks must also be worn during all presence examinations, as they have already been compulsory for the use of local public transportation and at retails - the wearing of a so-called “everyday face mask” will therefore no longer be permissible at the campus of the University of Stuttgart (inside or in front of University buildings).
