The Institute remains open but large gatherings of people (>10) are strongly discouraged. 

Sensible “social distancing” precautions including minimizing time spent in close proximity to one another are highly recommended, as are best practices to avoid illness, including frequent hand washing and avoiding touching one’s face with unwashed hands. 

If you are not feeling well, do not come to the Institute but please advise us by contacting us by phone or email (; ; ).  Stay at home, get rest, and get any medical attention you need.

As the situation evolves this update will be revised.

For further information regarding precautions you may want to take, please see, for example, https://www.infektionsschutz.de.
