Self-tests for visitors and social distancing in outdoor areas at the Institute
(according to an email from the managing Director from May 10, 2021)
please find below rules about self-tests for visitors and social distancing in outdoor areas at the Institute.
Corona self-tests for visitors
Visitors who are not offered regular coronavirus testing through their employers (typically foreign visitors or self-employed workers) may perform a self-test once a week during their visit at the MPS.
Visitors (with the exception of employees of external companies contracted for work at the MPS) are required to perform a coronavirus self-test when they enter the institute if they cannot maintain the minimum distance of 2 m to MPS employees for a period of time longer than 15 min during their activities at the institute, or if they have to attend a presence meeting in a closed room at the MPS for a period of time longer than 30 min together with MPS employees. A test is not required if the visitor can prove that he or she was tested negative within the last 24 hours or is fully vaccinated.
Contact restrictions in the inner courtyard and in the outdoor areas of the MPS
In the inner courtyard and in the outdoor areas of the MPS, the same contact restrictions apply as those imposed by the authorities for public space. This currently means that only people from a maximum of two different households can meet. A distance of 1.5 m must be maintained at all times. This applies in particular when taking meals at the tables in the inner courtyard, where only two people are allowed to eat at the same table.
Thank you for your understanding.
