In view of the proliferation of the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), we request that all OVGU employees to pay special attention, to observe the hygiene regulations and to act responsibly towards each other. On this page we have compiled important information for you and ask you to observe the service instructions and to inform yourself here regularly about changes.

Hotline for suspected cases

For suspected cases, University Medicine has set up a hotline in German and English: +49 (0)391 67 1 7799. This is not a general advice hotline.


With the publication of the new hygiene concept of Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg, new hygiene measures will also apply on campus from 6 April 2021. We would like to point out to all university members and guests that these regulations must be observed. Below you will find an overview of the changes.

Here you will find important labor law information and instructions on how to behave if you yourself are ill or have had contact with a sick person or are entering a risk area.
