Our absolute priority is the health and safety of participants. Please make sure to check all COVID-19 related requirements with the official German Government websites regularly if you intend o participate at EMS2022 in-person.
To keep locals and visitors safe, FFP2 or medical masks are required on public transport (including at train stations and airports) and in health care institutions. The compulsory wearing of masks is applicable in nursing care facilities, hospitals and other healthcare institutions, as well as in certain community housing and on public transport. Wearing a mask on long-distance passenger transport and on airplanes is also compulsory. Mouth and nose must be covered aboard any public transport. Masks must fulfil the requirements of FFP2.
If travellers develop symptoms associated with COVID-19 (coughing, a runny nose, sore throat or fever) they should get in touch by phone with a doctor or contact the hotline 116 117. Often travel guides or hotels can also help in such cases. Travellers should keep the contact details of their home country’s embassy or consulate in Germany in case they need to contact them.
