Information on the coronavirus

Of course, the regulations issued over the last months to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus have an effect on studying, teaching and working at our university. We will use this site to let you know what these effects are.

Please follow these basic rules:

  • If you are showing symptoms of a cold, please contact your general physician who will determine the next steps.
  • If you have a high temperature in the course of your illness, you may not enter FUAS’ buildings. Only after you have not shown any symptoms for a period of 24 hours may you enter FUAS’ buildings again.

The rules and regulations set out in our hygiene concept must be followed while at FUAS.

Every one of us can do their part in preventing a spread of the virus. Please read the information and advice on what you can do provided by the World Health Organisation. And please follow these hygiene and health measures – they can help to protect you from influenza as well as the new coronavirus:

  • wash your hands regularly
  • avoid touching your face
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your bent elbow when you have to cough or sneeze (respiratory hygiene)
  • keep a distance to people who are ill and try to avoid large groups of people

How is FUAS affected?

We have set up a crisis management group that meets and discusses current developments regularly. We will keep you updated on the situation at FUAS on this site and our social media channels.

General information

What to do when you’re unwell

Not everyone who coughs is infected with the new coronavirus. If you feel unwell and are showing symptoms of an influenza and if you fear you may be infected with the new coronavirus, please call your general practitioner.

Call your GP first and explain your symptoms. It is advisable to make an appointment outside your doctor’s regular consultation hours or maybe schedule a house call. It is not a good idea for you to sit in your GP’s waiting room alongside other patients.
Your GP will then take the tests and examinations necessary. Flensburg University of Applied Sciences is part of the official communication chain in place and will be informed of any relevant developments by the City of Flensburg’s health department.

If you do not have a GP or you can’t reach them, please contact the Kassenärztliche Vereinigung [Association of Physicians registered with the Statutory Health Insurance Providers] by calling +49 116 117.

Where to find more information
