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.

FFP2 mask recommendation

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

Corona tests

MUK recommends that all university staff make regular use of the free, public PCR testing service.
In preparation for larger projects and events, COVID-19 tests can be carried out at the MUK; the MUK provides antigen tests for this purpose. 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 course-specific basis by the responsible head of 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.

The general rule is: SICK PEOPLE STAY HOME!
