Meetings and discussions
At the workplace as well as at all gatherings in meetings, committee meetings, etc., the 3G rule applies to all employees of the university. Guests of the university, e.g. at official meetings, must also prove their 3G status. The 3G must be verified by the*inviting party. Without 3G proof, use of university facilities or participation in meetings, committee meetings, etc. is not permitted.
This also applies to meetings of research groups or other meetings in the field of research.

As of October 1st, 2021, the University of Siegen will then be accessible to all its members without restriction and on-site work will be the norm; home office can be performed within the framework of the general agreements.
For working groups and other meetings without event character in the field of research, also with external colleagues, it applies that
- All participants must be vaccinated, recovered or tested (3G rule). [Update 12-06-2021 4:30 pm]
- a mask must be worn if several people meet and the minimum distance cannot be safely maintained.
- If the minimum distance of 1.5 meters is safely maintained (e.g. by fixed seating in a meeting room) or only immunized (recovered or fully vaccinated) persons meet, the mask can be removed.
For research events, such as workshops, the 3G rule applies: participation in an event is only possible with proof of immunity (vaccinated or recovered), negative test proof, or supervised self-testing. The test proofs must not be older than 24 hours.
