Rules of Conduct Corona


Valid from Monday, April 4, 2022

As of Monday, April 4, 2022, the "3G rule" will no longer apply to university sports in Aachen. Nevertheless, we encourage everyone to continue testing themselves before participation and to wear a face mask on the way to and from the indoor sports facilities as well as in the waiting area in order to further minimize the occurrence of infections. Further information on this topic can be found on the RWTH Corona Blog.


Stay in the Sports Facilities

Staying in the sports facilities of the University Sports Center (HSZ) is only permitted during the opening hours while training. The sports facilities of the HSZ are to be left immediately after the end of the training.


We recommend using the Corona-Warning-App whenever possible.

Mask Recommendation

Face masks are strongly recommended on the way to and from indoor sports facilities and in the waiting area as well. The face mask can be removed while practicing sports.

Follow Distancing Rules – Avoid Physical Contact

In the waiting areas and during a training session, the prescribed distance between persons practicing sports activities must always be maintained. Contact sports are an exception. Handshakes, high-fives, hugging, etc. are to be completely avoided.

Observe Personal Hygiene Rules

Frequent and intensive hand washing of at least thirty seconds with soap and hot water is recommended. Touching the face with the hands should be avoided. Please observe the prescribed coughing and sneezing etiquette.

Exercise Only When Healthy

Only those who are completely free of Coronavirus symptoms according to their self-evaluation may participate in training and be in RWTH sports facilities. Only absolutely symptom-free persons are allowed to come to the training. Those with typical symptoms such as coughing and fever should stay home and contact their general practitioner by phone. This also applies to diarrhea, nausea, unexplainable severe fatigue and muscle pain, and disorders of the sense of smell or taste. Anyone acting contrary to these instructions will be immediately expelled from the facilities.

Bring Your own Drinks

Due to tightened hygiene requirements, there are currently no water dispensers available. We recommend bringing your own drinks (glass bottles are prohibited in the sports facilities of the HSZ).

Act Responsibly

The sustainable realization of the sports program stands or falls with the considerate and responsible behavior of all involved. We are thereby dependent on your support, especially in observing the rules. Therefore, please always follow the instructions of the HSZ staff.
