The academy is getting a new visual identity. In addition, our website will be technically revised, further developed and adapted step by step. We thank our visitors for their patience. You can find more information to the corporate design on the microsite.

Please check the Academy‘s COVID19-GUIDE for all regulations in detail.

The major regulations for the current state ORANGE are summarized here:

ORANGE = Hybrid mode

Parts of the university or college operation are carried out on site and parts are offered or carried out digitally. This mode of operation goes beyond the presence and dual operation in that it is not only enriched with digital elements, but its digital elements form an essential part of the operation and physical presence is further restricted or the security and protection aspects are significantly intensified.

 

GENERAL REGULATIONS

  • All students and staff members entering the Academy’s buildings (at Augasse this only applies to the Academy’s areas) or participating in outdoor classes must carry a valid “3G” verification. According to § 1 (2) of the current “COVID-19 Öffnungsverordnung”, the following options are regarded as proof of low epidemiological hazard – and are thus valid as “entry ticket” for accessing the Academy’s premises:
  1. Proof of a negative result of a SARS-CoV-2 antigen self test, recorded in an official data processing system and taken during the previous 24 hours
  2. Proof of a negative result from an antigen test for SARS-CoV-2 from an authorized source, collected during the previous 48 hours
  3. Proof of a negative result from a molecular biological test for SARS-CoV-2 (PCR test),collected during the previous 72 hours
  4. Medical confirmation of an infection with SARS-CoV-2 during the past 6 months, confirmed by molecular biological testing
  5. Medical confirmation of an infection with SARS-CoV-2 during the past 6 months, confirmed by molecular biological testing
  6. Proof of vaccination using a centrally approved vaccine against COVID-19:
    1. primary vaccination: valid from day 22 after primary vaccination for 3 months after primary vaccination
    2. second vaccination: valid for 9 months after primary vaccination
    3. vaccines for which only one vaccination dose is sufficient: valid from day 22 after vaccination day for 9 months after vaccination day
    4. If a positive molecular biological test for SARS-CoV-2 was available at least 21 days prior to vaccination or evidence of neutralizing antibodies was available prior to vaccination: vaccination valid for 9 months after vaccination day
  7. A certificate according to § 4.18 EpiG or a segregation certificate, issued for a person who has been infected with SARS-CoV-2 in the last 6 months prior to the intended testing
  8. Proof of neutralizing antibodies, not older than 3 months
  • Please pay special attention to shared spaces such as hallways, kitchens and restrooms to ensure that all safety measures are followed (especially wearing masks and keeping distance).
  • Random checks take place in all Academy buildings to monitor 3G verification, the use of FFP2 masks, the minimum distance of two meters and the number of people present. Individuals who violate these rules will be warned and banished from the building for the rest of the day. Further violations may result in longer reprimands and, if necessary, consequences under personnel law.
  • For persons who have been tested, recovered from COVID-19 or vaccinated, all known measures – especially keeping a distance and wearing FFP2 masks – remain fully valid.
  • The Academy’s buildings are partially accessible on weekends again – according to our official opening hours calendars. However, the restricted opening hours from 7 am to 10 pm remain valid at all locations until further notice

  • contact tracing, FFP2 masks, keeping a minimum distance of two meters to each other, regular ventilation
  • Class instructors are responsible for checking the test certificates at the beginning of the course by reviewing either written confirmation of the test street / pharmacy / gargle testing or the test kit of the Anterior Nasal test labeled with name, date and time (The test has to be done directly on site to be able to determine that the result actually belongs to the respective person).
  • In justified exceptional cases, persons who could not take a test in advance will receive a test kit from the class instructor.

    In case a rapid self test taken at class turns out with a positive result, the class instructor is required to report to the VRFPP (vizerektorin_finanzen_personal@akbild.ac.at) and call 1450 to arrange for a PCR test to verify the result. The person tested positive needs to go into quarantine at home immediately.

    Individual work in studios and ateliers:

  • possible for students who have permission from their respective heads of institutes / studios
  • Institute / studio heads are responsible for the organization of shift plans.
  • Please mind the maximum number of persons allowed, defined for the orange status for each room.
  • contact tracing, FFP2 masks, keeping a minimum distance of two meters to each other, regular ventilation

Outdoor teaching:

  • individual solutions depending on the type of course and after consultation with the VRFPP
  • contact tracing, FFP2 masks and/or keeping a minimum distance of two meters to each other

REGULATIONS FOR OFFICE OPERATIONS AND UNITS WITH PUBLIC TRAFFIC

  • General university operations continue – when possible from home, especially for risk groups or to avoid multiple occupancy of small workspaces. Reduction of the number of persons present per room while ensuring the maintenance of operations and accessibility (call diversion or automatic info announcement). Department and institute managers are responsible for the organization of shift plans.
  • In justified individual cases, Anterior Nasal tests provided by the Academy can be used – for instance, for inevitable, spontaneously called meetings in case of emergencies or repair work, etc.
