Coronavirus COVID-19


Latest DESY Information

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.

The so-called 3G rule will apply at the workplace from Wednesday, 24 November 2021. This means that all persons may only enter the sites in Hamburg and Zeuthen if they have been vaccinated, recovered or tested. You must carry proof of your vaccination, convalescent or test status with you at all times and keep it available for checking. The proof of testing must be a certified proof of a negative rapid antigen test or PCR test. The legal validity period of rapid antigen tests is 24 hours and the legal validity period of PCR tests is 48 hours. Self-tests are not permitted.

In principle, work at DESY should be done in a home office and the presence of employees on campus should be reduced to a minimum. Presence on campus may be required for campus-related work, academic or technical training, or personal meetings, for example. When doing so, please be sure to observe hygiene, spacing and masking rules to ensure a safe stay on campus.
All regulations and recommendations at DESY for handling the Corona virus are summarized in the current version of the Corona Guide.
