Stay healthy! Stay negative! Get vaccinated!

as of 1 March 2023

The COVID-19 safety concept of the MUK is developed with representatives of all MUK interests and is continuously adapted to the current regulations, which are adhered to by all MUK employees.
All the latest information on the current Corona safety measures can be found on the MUK website. If you have any questions regarding COVID-19, please call 1450 for regulatory information.

All measures listed here are subject to changing legal requirements.

No admission for COVID-19 infected persons! Also applies to symptom-free infected persons!

Due to the specific situation of a University of Music and Performing Arts, COVID-19 infected persons must stay away from the MUK for at least 5 days. If the PCR test result is negative (or the CT value is above 30) after 5 days, access is permitted again, otherwise you must stay away for 10 days (or until the CT value is above 30).
This regulation also applies if there are no symptoms or the disease is mild.

Reporting obligation for all COVID-19 infected persons!

If you test positive for the Corona virus, please report to the MUK immediately at; staff members should also report to

FFP2 mask recommendation

Wearing an FFP2 mask is recommended at the MUK as far as the activity at the MUK allows.

Corona tests

The MUK recommends that all university members make regular use of the free, public PCR test offer.

Currently, the MUK still has antigen tests that can be used for larger events such as orchestra projects. Due to the different artistic and organisational requirements in the artistic disciplines, the implementation and verification of the tests is determined on a project- and degree programme-specific basis by the responsible head of the study programme.

External venues:
The above-mentioned regulation also applies to MUK members for own and cooperation events of the MUK at external venues. In addition, the respective COVID-19 safety concept of the external venue or external organiser applies.

Corona tests can be obtained from Björn Wilfinger

The general rule is: SICK PEOPLE STAY HOME!
