Playing sports safely - despite Covid-19

Mandatory rules of conduct and hygiene regulations relating to university sports

... based on the Ordinance on Basic Measures to Protect the Population from Infections with the SARS-CoV-2 Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2 Basic Protective Measures Ordinance - BaSchMV) of the state of Berlin.

As we enter the summer semester, sporting activities are once again possible without restrictions. The only remaining obligation is to wear an FFP2 mask. This must be worn upon entering the sports hall and left on until individuals either actively participate in the sports session or leave the hall. This also applies to functional spaces.

Entry to the sports facilities is prohibited in the event of symptoms of a cold, unexplained symptoms of illness or contact with infected persons (COVID-19). In these cases, participation in the sports course is not possible. The sports office must be informed by email in the event of suspicious cases etc.

Anything else to note?
We appeal to everyone to continue to observe certain protective measures on a voluntary basis despite the fact that legal obligations to do so have ceased. Together we can make an important contribution to playing sports in the long term, without worrying unduly about risk-taking. Therefore, we continue to recommend the following:

  • Stay at home if you feel ill or have symptoms that could be related to a COVID-19 infection.
  • We recommend that you come already dressed for the course. Use the changing rooms for as brief a period as possible.
  • Continue to ensure adequate hand hygiene.
  • We recommend, if the nature of the sport allows it, that you keep a distance of at least 1.5 m to the next participant.

Ventilation and cleaning

All course facilities and functional spaces must be ventilated as frequently as possible. Depending on the room layout, ventilation requirements must be adjusted accordingly depending on the number of people present and the weather conditions.

If sports equipment is used, it must be disinfected after use.
