In Germany, there is currently no legal obligation to test for Covid 19 or to wear masks. There is one exception: Masks are only compulsory in public transport. Further regulations are left to the respective landlord of a building.

We assume that all participants of the congress have been vaccinated, but will not ask for proof. We ask all participants of the congress to carry out a self-test before arriving in the conference venue. Each participant will receive 4 self-tests from ISA with the congress materials.

Our protective measures also include the wearing of masks in the building (surgical masks or breathing masks FFP2, KN95, N95).

The wearing of a mask may be dispensed with in the following cases:

– at fixed seating or standing places (also in catering facilities) at a distance of 1.5 meters from other participants

– for the consumption of food and beverages

– by persons who cannot wear a mask for medical reasons and can prove this by means of a medical certificate. In these cases, a visor must be worn instead of a mask.

– Speakers who enter the podium will also remove their masks when speaking.

– However, please do not remove your mask during the poster presentation.

Your conference badge serves as a ticket for the congress. Please keep it with you at all times, also for special events in the evening.

What happens if your self-test is positive?

1.Have your test result confirmed!

Sometimes self-tests show false positive results. In the presence of a positive self-test result, it is recommended to confirm your result using a PCR test. According to the currently applicable federal test regulation, you are entitled to a confirmatory examination. This test is therefore free of charge for you.

Contact a testing site in Heidelberg, e.g.

Hauptstraße 49,
69117 Heidelberg

To carry out the test, you can interrupt the isolation.

Please observe the applicable protective measures (distance, medical

mouth and nose protection or FFP2 mask).

2.Obligated isolation

Positively tested persons must seek isolation immediately after being informed of the positive PCR or rapid test result.

Segregation ends at the earliest five days after the initial detection of the pathogen, provided that the person has been symptom-free for 48 hours, but at the latest after ten days. If the pathogen was first detected by means of a rapid test, isolation shall end as soon as a subsequent negative PCR test result is available. Positively tested persons must seek isolation immediately after being informed of the positive PCR or rapid test result.

Of course, participation in the congress in person is only allowed with negative test results and without symptoms.
