What to do in case of flu-like symptoms

Feeling ill? You think it could be Covid-19? You will need to follow certain guidelines to inform your fellow students.

Kindly follow this link to the „Guideline for Action COVID-19“ (download box): https://www.fh-bielefeld.de/hochschule/aktuelles/informationen-covid19-studierende

These guidelines are mandatory and must be followed during the time you are a student of Bielefeld UAS.

Revaccination for international students

Students who have been vaccinated abroad with COVID-19 vaccines that are not licensed in the EU need a renewed vaccination. This is the only way they can present valid proof of vaccination in Germany.

Here is an overview of which vaccines are licensed in the EU: https://www.pei.de/EN/newsroom/dossier/coronavirus/coronavirus-content.html;jsessionid=6F87823A7B6E56792FDD0739F8BBA831.intranet231?cms_pos=3

You can find further information on revaccination for international students here.


Please follow these steps to ensure your own, but also the safety of other students
  • Cleanse your hands thoroughly and in the correct manner (For more information please see the tips of the World Health Organization on this website: https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/advice-for-public)
  • Avoid contact with people who are visibly ill, esp. those who seem to suffer from fever, a cough or breathing difficulties
  • If you have the possibility, get vaccinated against influenza
  • There are possibilities to disinfect your hands all over Bielefeld campus

If you experience symptoms such as a fever, breathing difficulties or a cough, please immediately inform a hospital or doctor in Bielefeld and consult them by telephone beforehand. Please remember to phone them first, since the hospital and doctors would like to avoid chances of the virus spreading in the waiting rooms.
