Dear customers and partners,
the coronavirus pandemic has changed our daily lives in the past months. Despite the existing restrictions, we are maintaining operations in IHD and EPH and have largely returned to a new normality.
We would like to inform you about the current situation at our institute: Our institute is open and many of our staff members are back from their home office and available for you. Our highest priority is the health and protection of our employees and business partners. Therefore we have initiated numerous protective procedures by which we want to minimize the risk of infection and avoid the spread of the virus. We have limited visits and business trips as far as possible and shift attendance appointments to telephone and video conferences.
In order to ensure the greatest possible safety for our employees, the number of visitors is currently limited to three persons and we would ask you to arrange visits in advance. If you have typical symptoms of illness such as cough, rhinitis, fever, loss of taste or have had direct contact with a confirmed Covid-19 case in recent weeks, we ask for your understanding that we cannot grant you access. All visitors of IHD and EPH are kindly requested to report to the reception desk and to disinfect themselves upon entering the building. The contact distance of 1.50 m must be maintained. If this distance cannot be maintained, a mouth-nose cover should be worn. We ask you to act responsibly and to observe general rules of hygiene (e.g. avoiding handshakes, increased hand washing, coughing and sneezing).
Our planning staff will monitor further developments and adapt regulations if necessary. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Please stay healthy!
