The COVID-19 safety concept of the MUK is based on the ordinances and recommendations of the federal ministries and is continuously adapted to the current ordinances, which are followed by all MUK members.

If the protection concept is adhered to and as long as they are not ill, the members of the MUK can use the buildings and infrastructure of the MUK during the COVID-19 pandemic, taking into account the following protective measures.

At the MUK, FFP2 masks are mandatory as soon as more than one person is in a room, as well as in all public areas of the MUK.
Employees who are particularly in need of protection are advised to contact the personnel management (, +43 1 512 77 47-240) and not to use the MUK premises during the COVID 19 pandemic for the time being. If necessary, special arrangements can be made with Human Resources Management in consultation with the Rectorate.

As recommended in the COVID-19: Guidelines for Safe University Operations of the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research, the rectors of the Austrian music and art universities will coordinate their respective COVID-19 protection concepts with each other.

All measures listed here are subject to changing legal requirements.
