Corona Guidelines and Recommendations of the Faculty for Chemistry and Pharmacy

Face masks - Mask-wearing compulsory at LMU

It is compulsory to wear a medical face mask (surgical mask) or FFP2 mask at LMU, not only when entering and leaving any lecture halls and conference rooms but also in all areas of LMU buildings where people meet or come into contact with others. This applies in particular to corridors, stairways, elevators and bathrooms.

At the same time, masks are obligatory at face-to-face classes - also for lecturers - even at one’s desk. Excluded from this are examinations.

At the workplace (including meeting rooms) the obligation to wear masks applies only if the minimum distance of 1.5 m cannot be reliably maintained.

When dealing openly with hazardous, bio- and radioactive materials, masks must not be worn. However, respiratory protection must still be used for special activities requiring respiratory protection.


Information for members of the Gene Center according to the rules of the Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy

Excerpt from the rules:

Staying in a faculty building is only permitted if the person feels completely healthy and, to the best of their knowledge and belief, has had no direct contact with a person infected with the corona virus in the last 14 days.

Social distance requirement:

  • This distance requirement applies at all times inside and outside the campus rooms and buildings.
  • Respectful cooperation is expected, which aims at the health and well-being of all. Basically, care must be taken to move prudently and defensively within the building. Unnecessary walks or stays in the corridor, staircase or other areas of the building as well as group formation are to be avoided. Activities such as barbecues, any kind of celebrations and joint consumption of alcohol or community sports on the faculty premises are prohibited.
  • Elevators should not be used if possible. If elevator use is unavoidable, the elevator should only be used by one person.

Wearing of mouth-nose protection:

It is not permitted to enter the LMU buildings without mouth-nose protection (surgical masks or FFP2- masks).
Mouth and nose protection must be worn in all buildings and rooms of the faculty. Exceptions are rooms that are only used by one person and certain examination and teaching situations.
