Status: 22.02.2021, valid from 01.11.2020

1. Preliminary remark

With its hygiene concept, the Städelschule contributes to maintaining the health and protection of its employees and students. All subsequent measures are based on the decrees of the Hessian state government, the Hessian Ministry of Science and Art and the hygiene recommendations of the Robert Koch Institute. The measures described are coordinated with the Staff Council and the Corona working group.

Teachers, staff and students are informed about the hygiene measures in the appropriate manner. The hygiene concept is regularly checked with regard to the validity of its contents and updated in case of changes or extensions: (https://www.staedelschule.de/de/calendar/coronavirus-aktuelle-hinweise)

2. General hygiene measures

The following hygiene regulations must be strictly adhered to. Each and every individual is responsible for appropriate personal hygiene:

  • Wear a medical mouth-nose-cover - In the workshops, on the staircases, in the corridors, in the library and always, if the safety distance cannot be kept, a medical mouth-nose-protection must be worn (see points 3ff). Employees and students are requested to bring their own medical mouth-nose-covers. Keep at least 1.5 m distance between yourself and other persons. The maximum number of persons in the room is also linked to the distance requirement, it depends on the conditions in the existing rooms. For all rooms a maximum occupancy is determined. Currently the maximum is 10 m2 per person.
  • Washing hands - Wash your hands regularly and thoroughly with soap. In addition, there are hand disinfectant dispensers at several locations throughout the university that can be used.
  • Maintain respiratory hygiene - When coughing or sneezing, cover your mouth and nose with a bent elbow or a handkerchief and dispose of it immediately.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth if possible - hands can absorb viruses and transmit them through mucous membranes in the face!
  • Avoid hand contact - Avoid unnecessary hand contact, e.g. shaking hands or hugging. If possible, do not touch publicly accessible objects such as door handles or elevator buttons with your full hand or fingers.
  • Ventilate regularly - Ventilate work rooms every 20 minutes for approx. 5 minutes (shock ventilation/cross ventilation).
  • If you feel ill - Please inform the personnel department immediately and go home or stay at home.
