Hygiene Concept for In-house Courses of the DeutschAkademie Hamburg
This hygiene concept is based on the regulations of the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research (BMBWF) and reflects the legal situation of the HmbSARS-CoV-2 containment regulation of 19.07.2022, valid from 20th of July 2022: https://www.hamburg.de/verordnung/
According to this, the following specifications apply:
Mouth-nose coverage: In all courses we recommend: a medical or FFP2 mask. This means that during the course and outside the course rooms (office, toilets, hallway) we recommend wearing a mask. Participants are responsible for providing their own mask. In the hallways, office and restrooms a minimum distance of 1.50 m should be maintained.
Please also note:
If the course cannot be held at DeutschAkademie due to force majeure, the course will take place onlinewithout any reimbursement of costs.
Obligation to report suspected corona or corona disease
If students show the typical symptoms of an infection with the coronavirus (increased temperature from 37.5°C, cold symptoms or respiratory illnesses), they will not be allowed to enter the premises of the DeutschAkademie or to take part in lessons.
The same applies in the case of contact with an infected person or a positive test for Covid-19, but also in the case of a suspected possible infection. In such a case, a person responsible at the DeutschAkademie must be informed immediately so that any chains of infection can be stopped as quickly as possible.
Persons present shall be made aware of this by means of written notices.
Persons who develop symptoms typical of Corona during their stay must leave the premises of the DeutschAkademie, go into domestic isolation and contact their family doctor for clarification.
Hygiene measures for the implementation of lessons
Frequently touched surfaces and sanitary facilities are cleaned regularly.
Care is taken to ensure that the interior rooms are sufficiently ventilated with fresh air. For this purpose, the operating rooms are ventilated regularly. Ventilation must be carried out at least once an hour. All available possibilities for maximum ventilation are used. Care is taken to ensure that cross-ventilation takes place whenever possible. If possible, windows and doors shall remain open at all times.
Queues are to be avoided.
The use of public transport is subject to the hygiene rules displayed there.
Stay in the building: breaks, leaving & entering the DeutschAkademie
When entering and leaving the DeutschAkademie or changing rooms, hands must be washed or disinfected. Disinfectants are available at the entrance, in the toilets and in front of the office. In the stairwell and in the corridors, make sure to walk on the right.
Room hygiene at the DeutschAkademie
The premises are cleaned and disinfected even more frequently than usual. This applies in particular to contact surfaces such as door handles and tables, as well as the sanitary area.
This hygiene concept shall be displayed in a clearly visible manner. Hands must be disinfected before entering the premises. Signposted disinfectant dispensers with the request to use them when entering the premises are provided by the DeutschAkademie. Soap, towel and disinfectant dispensers are regularly checked and refilled.
Disinfectants for surface disinfection are available in the classrooms. The workplaces are to be cleaned by the pupils before and after lessons.
The sanitary rooms are equipped with liquid soap, disposable towels and disinfectants.
Personal hygiene at the DeutschAkademie
Students are encouraged to wash their hands regularly (wash hands with soap for 20-30 seconds) or to disinfect their hands. The DeutschAkademie ensures that this is possible.
Coughing and sneezing etiquette must be observed (cough or sneeze into the crook of the arm or into a tissue). If possible, touching eyes, nose and mouth as well as physical contact between pupils is to be avoided.
The measures mentioned take effect immediately.
If the official requirements change, this hygiene concept will be adapted accordingly. (Status updated July 2022)
