Traveling to the stations has been restricted considerably. The purpose of the measures is to prevent the spread of the disease to these remote sites. Only necessary research and such working, which is necessary to advance studies, is allowed in the stations. For example working on a master's thesis can be allowed, if there is a compelling justification for that. These cases should be discussed and agreed with the station manager.
Q: How should the research stations prepare for cases of illness?
A: The stations should designate a separate facility for those who fall ill. If possible, this facility should enable the affected individuals to cook or heat food. The facility should not be booked for other uses for the duration of the exceptional circumstances at the University.
Q: Can research station facilities be offered to third parties during the exceptional circumstances?
Q: Can researchers go to the stations for research work?
