COVID-Update: study safe!


With great pleasure we start the summer semester under the motto “Presence first”.

Here is an overview of the measures that apply currently at FH JOANNEUM:

  • Hygiene measures still apply.
  • The FFP2 mask requirement is lifted as of 25 April 2022. However, we continue to recommend wearing an FFP2 mask whenever deemed necessary. For courses / examinations in the field of health studies, appropriate safety measures may be specified if necessary due to individual settings with close body contact.
  • The obligation to report suspected cases of COVID-19 and cases of illness via the online reporting tool no longer applies to students. However, please inform the head of your study program in any case of suspicion or illness!
