The Coronavirus Pandemic is still not over, it will face us with greater challenges for some time to come. Thanks to the restrictions on contact and existing hygiene measures, the spread of the new type of coronavirus has been contained. It is important to continue to follow the rules in order to avoid new infections and sources of spread. We are all called upon to be careful and calm in order to jointly minimise infection rates.

Since 16 March 2020, OFFIS has ordered home work for all employees, this regulation is still valid. It is especially intended to protect those who have to come to OFFIS facilities due to operational necessity. However, this does not mean a change for our research and project work. All work will continue as planned, all scientists can be reached as usual by e-mail or telephone. Our reception in the main building, Escherweg 2, is manned from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. to accept mail and parcels and to maintain the telephone service.

Your safety and that of our employees is our highest priority. We would therefore like to give you an overview of our protective measures and the applicable rules of conduct. Please do not visit us if you feel ill.

The visit of OFFIS is only possible for external visitors by prior appointment. Every visitor* has to fill in a self-declaration in order to fulfill the requirement to document the presence at OFFIS. During their visit at OFFIS all known hygiene measures, such as wearing a mouth and nose protection (MNS mask), have to be observed.

You can download the self-declaration as a PDF file to fill in and bring it to your appointment at OFFIS.

We regret the current situation. The responsibility towards our colleagues, partners and other people leaves us no other option. We say to all who, like us, are going through these unusual times: Many thanks for the sympathetic cooperation - and stay healthy!
