Information due to COVID-19

We still welcome researchers and groups for education, but with limitations to prevent the spread of the virus. Unfortunately, at this moment we can not welcome tourists or school classes.

For international guests coming directly from abroad, a negative coronation test and a five-day quarantine are required before the guest can access the station. Alternatively, the guest can present a certificate of corona vaccination or an antibody test.

The station has taken several actions to minimize the spread of COVID-19. For example, we have reduced the number of available seats in the lecture hall, and the lunch restaurant, as well as using separate lunchtimes for personnel and visitors. Personal responsibility is also important: wash your hands often, keep your distance, stay in your bedroom if you feel unwell, and notify your teacher.Additional information will be given during the safety information when you arrive at the station.
