FFP2 masks recommended in university buildings

Regular hand washing and ventilation, keeping 1.5 m away from other people and wearing a mask are among the most important measures to protect yourself and others from Covid-19. Wearing an FFP2 mask in the buildings of the University of Rostock is therefore strongly recommended.

Students with vaccination with non-EU-approved vaccines

Currently, vaccinations against Covid-19 given with vaccines that are not licensed in the EU are not recognised in the EU. Therefore, people with a non-approved vaccination are considered unvaccinated in the EU. If you have any questions, the team of the Department of Tropical Medicine and Infectious Diseases at Rostock University Medical Centre will advise students on the protective effect and documentation of a previous Covid-19 disease or previous vaccinations against Covid-19.
