Informationen on the new Corona Virus


Here the university informs about current developments regarding the new type of corona virus. It is important to us to protect students and employees as much as possible from infection by providing information and safety measures.

The main transmission pathway for the corona virus is droplet infection. The virus can reach the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract via droplets containing the virus by travelling from person to person. However, transmission can also take place indirectly via the hands. An infection can lead to symptoms such as fever, cough, cold and fatigue, but also to breathing problems, headaches, aching limbs and diarrhoea.

At the University of Applied Sciences Aschaffenburg, no corona virus infections are known as yet. Nevertheless, we ask all students and employees to observe the general hygiene measures to protect against infections.
This includes in particular

For the winter semester, an individual hygiene concept was developed for the entire university, which is coordinated with the Aschaffenburg Health Department.

The data is stored in compliance with data protection and deleted after 4 weeks. If necessary, all contact persons can be identified and contacted by the Health Department. In order to ensure that contact tracking is successful in case of need, we address the following urgent requests to you:
