Restrictions because of COVID-19

Since the number of persons allowed in a lab at the same time is limited by the COVID-19 rules drawn up by the university, the following regulations apply:

  • Only ONE user with any type of mask or TWO users with FFP2/3 masks (and at that ONLY during training or a course) is/are allowed in the room. There are NO exceptions to this rule.
  • You may not wait in the lab or in other rooms of the faculty center for e.g. the vacuum to reach a certain level, so that other users can access equipment in the lab in the meantime.
  • You are only allowed to work in lab 3333 after reserving the lab via an entry in the respective u:Cloud calendar. Please contact Stephan Puchegger, who will then share the u:Cloud calendar with you.
  • The calendar also serves as a means of COVID user tracking. Please modify your entry afterwards so that it reflects your actual time in the lab and includes the full names of all persons.
  • Do not switch off the ventilation.
  • Disinfect the equipment after finishing your work.
