Hygiene measures and rules of conduct

Mandatory FFP2 masks

At the MUK, FFP2 masks are mandatory in all public areas and as soon as more than one person is in a room.

Hand hygiene

All MUK members regularly clean their hands with soap and water for at least 30 seconds. If hand washing is not possible, hands must be disinfected with hand disinfectant, which is available in dispensers.

Ventilate rooms

The members of the MUK independently ensure regular ventilation of the MUK premises. Hourly airing of the offices and practice rooms for at least 10 minutes is mandatory. During lessons: after each lesson/rehearsal during the entire break until the next lesson/rehearsal. Interior rooms without windows (except rarely used storage rooms) must be ventilated through the door at least 10 minutes every hour, the MUK.theatre and MUK.podium are equipped with ventilation systems that ensure sufficient air exchange.

Keep a distance

In general, a distance of at least 1 metre must be maintained in the general areas of the MUK buildings and during lessons; a minimum distance of 2.5 metres applies to artistic practical lessons involving singing, speaking, flute.

Room occupancy

The COVID-19 task force has set a maximum occupancy for all teaching and practice rooms at the MUK. Here you can find the current room concept (max. number of people) for classroom teaching and practice. The number specified there refers to all persons present in the room — students and lecturers in total. It may not be exceeded under any circumstances. Teachers are obliged to ensure compliance with the maximum occupancy of the rooms with applicable spacing regulations. This maximum room occupancy applies to all types of meetings in the MUK rooms (teaching, rehearsals, meetings, etc.).
Lifts may only be used as far as absolutely necessary and individually.

Reduction Contacts

The MUK continues to recommend that its relatives maintain as few personal contacts as possible. Distance learning/teaching, video conferencing and home office are tried and tested instruments for reducing the number of contacts of MUK relatives, which are possible after consultation with superiors. Upon completion of the necessary activity at the MUK, students should leave the building as soon as possible.
