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 have been abroad in the last 14 days are not allowed to enter the DESY premises in Hamburg or Zeuthen. They 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.

This regulation no longer applies to entry or return journeys from the European Union as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland, Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

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