Information about the coronavirus This page contains the latest information about the impact of the coronavirus on the University of St.Gallen. It is continually updated. Status 25 June 2021. Interaction, communication and the inspiring exchange of ideas in teaching, research and university services are central to the University of St.Gallen (HSG). The stay and cooperation on campus and in the other university properties are now fortunately possible again to a much greater extent. The HSG Covid-19 measures apply. Obligatory wearing of masks in general: All persons who are in the publicly accessible interior rooms of the university buildings (so-called "interior circulation areas") must wear a protective mouth-nose mask that complies with the official recommendations. The mask requirement also applies to short distances such as changing offices or going to the toilet. Persons without a protective mask must leave the university premises immediately. The mask requirement does not apply only to persons who have been released from the obligation to wear a mask by a doctor. Face-to-face teaching and executive education can take place again in the usual formats (no more capacity restrictions), but participants must wear a protective mask (except lecturers). Work meetings and other operationally necessary activities that must take place in presence are in principle possible at the HSG. However, please note: In addition to the valid protection and hygiene measures, the minimum distance of 1.5 meters must be observed in offices in particular. If this is not the case, a mask must be worn. If the distance of at least 1.5 metres is guaranteed, the obligation to wear a mask in the office is waived. Learning spaces are available as far as possible. To be noted: Even when seated, it is compulsory to wear a protective mask - except in situations of eating and drinking. Drinks and refreshments may not be used as an excuse to avoid wearing the mask for a longer period of time. The library remains open for borrowing and returning items only. Please use preferably the postal service. You will always find up-to-date information on the library pages. Please try not to always schedule your meals between 12 and 1 p.m. so that contacts in the catering areas can also be reduced. In indoor areas, seating is compulsory during consumption, as before, and the distance between groups (maximum of six people per table) must be observed. Contact details must still be collected, but one contact per group is sufficient. The mask must also continue to be worn, except when guests are seated at the table. In outdoor areas, the restriction on the size of guest groups and the obligation to sit when consuming is lifted. However, the distance between the groups of guests must be maintained here as well. Contact details no longer have to be collected outside. Staff are required to wear masks indoors and outdoors. The Unisport is able to offer a normalised programme. Only contact details need to be collected. Up-to-date information is always available at: sport.unisg.ch. Persons with symptoms of illness or persons who feel ill may not enter either the HSG buildings or the campus. We thank you for your cooperation in coping with the pandemic situation. Opening hours: You can find the current opening hours on the university homepage unisg.ch.
