Approval of field trips during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic
News from Jun 04, 2021
Field trips with students are now permitted if the following regulations are observed:
- You must prepare a hygiene plan for each field trip. The measures outlined in the hygiene plan must be in accordance with the current regulations for in-person teaching at Freie Universität as well as the rules and regulations in place at the destination of your field trip (e.g., any necessary testing, attendance lists, etc.).
- The official recommendation for field trips to countries outside the European Union is that all participants should be fully vaccinated.
- Departments decide whether to approve or reject field trip requests. The department might need to coordinate with the business travel office in making its decision.
- Field trips to countries or regions that are currently categorized by the Robert Koch Institute as high risk or as “virus variant areas” are not permitted as per the quarantine regulations stipulated by the Ordinance on Coronavirus Entry Regulations (in effect until June 30).
