What to do in case of possible infection or illness?

The Rectorate has revised the reporting process for the structured registration of suspected COVID-19 cases among staff members (including student employees) at TU Wien as follows:

  1. Stay at home or go home if you feel COVID-19 symptoms or suspect for other reasons that you are ill with COVID-19
  2. Contact the hotline 1450.
  3. Fill out the online registration form: If you are classified as a suspected case by the 1450 experts (= confirmed suspected case), you must report this status to TU Wien by providing complete information in the form for reporting suspected COVID-19 cases (login required).
