Corona cases

Who do I have to inform at the University of Liechtenstein if I am ill with COVID-19?

The notification should be sent to health@uni.li - for students with a copy to the respective contact person in the Student Services Department.


How do I know if I have been in contact with infected persons if their names are not mentioned publicly, and if I have to go into quarantine?

Close contact of infected persons (more than 15 minutes of close contact at a distance of less than 1.5 meters and without mouth and nose protection), will always be personally informed about the further procedure by the contact tracers of the authorities.

What do I have to do if I had contact in my personal environment with a person who was tested positive for the new coronavirus?

In this case you may be contagious in the next few days without realizing it. Therefore, the following applies:

  • Strictly follow the rules of hygiene and conduct.
  • Observe your state of health.
  • Stay away from the campus for safety reasons. In this case, students inform gesundheit@uni.li and the respective contact person in the Student Services Department. Employees can continue working from home.

If you experience symptoms of illness: Stay at home and follow the FOPH's instructions on what to do if you experience symptoms of illness.
Only persons with whom the person with the disease was in close contact must be placed in ordered quarantine. If you have to go into quarantine, the competent authority will contact you and inform you of the procedure to be followed.

And what do I have to do if I have been in contact with a "suspected corona case" (in quarantine, but no test result available yet)?

If there are no symptoms and no order from the authorities for isolation/quarantine has been issued, it is still possible to participate in teaching or work in compliance with the rules of hygiene and conduct.

For further questions and answers regarding the procedure in case of symptoms and possible infection, we recommend the

Who do I inform if I am unable to participate in training due to ordered quarantine or self-isolation?

Again, please report this to health@uni.li - for students, please send a copy to the respective contact person in the Student Services Department.

Update of the protection concept

What are the most important rules on campus?

  • Keep a distance of 1.5 meters
  • NEW: Mandatory masks on corridors and traffic areas
  • Wear masks when keeping distance is impossible
  • Observe hygiene

What can I do if I have forgotten the mandatory mouth and nose protection (MNS)?

You can purchase a mask set in the vending machines in the foyer.

What does the opening of the campus mean in terms of reception, library and cafeteria?

Campus and branch offices are reopened and accessible to members of the university according to the regular house rules (students, staff, lecturers).

The opening hours of the facilities (library, reception, International Office, cafeteria) are listed on the uni.li website.

Is the cafeteria open?

The cafeteria will reopen with a reduced number of seats. Masks are required in the waiting areas in front of the coffee machines and in front of the food counter, as well as on the way to your seat.

What applies in the offices? Minimum distance or minimum area per person?

The 1.5 m distance rule (between people, not desks) is decisive; the square meter rule is now being waived.
