Our primary goal is the health of DESY employees, our campus partners and our guests. DESY's Corona Task Force has initiated a number of measures to reduce the risk of infection on the campus while maintaining, albeit reduced, scientific operations.

Persons who have had contact with a person with a confirmed infection with the corona virus or who have stayed in a risk area designated by the RKI in the last 14 days may not enter the DESY premises in Hamburg or Zeuthen. You are requested to contact the local health authority. Only after a 14-day self-isolation, symptom-free persons can enter the campus. This applies to DESY employees, service providers and guests.

The exact rules for entering the campus can be found in the DESY Corona Guidelines.

Please note the following when staying on the DESY premises:

  • Keep a minimum distance of 1.5-2 meters
  • Wear a mouth-and-nose protection if the distance is less than the minimum distance
  • Pay attention to hygiene, especially hand hygiene
  • Ensure well ventilated rooms

All rules for DESY can be found in the DESY Corona Guidelines.

Information on the daily designation of international risk areas can be found on the following website: > Risk areas

If you have stayed on a DESY campus and have any complaints typical of Corona, please contact as soon as possible.
