Measures against the spread of the coronavirus

IMB prioritises the health and safety of all our employees and visitors. In response to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, we are taking the following precautions to minimise its impact and spread.

Current onsite situation at IMB as of November 2022

All staff are encouraged to participate in IMB’s twice weekly COVID-19 test in order to keep the distancing and mask rules, which are still recommended, to a minimum and to monitor infections at our workplace.

Events & Seminars

In-person lab meetings, work meetings, lectures, seminars, and other gatherings may now take place onsite without restrictions. It is recommended to wear a mask whenever applicable and to keep social distancing in order to respect and protect your colleagues and visitors. Please check our events and seminars pages for the current status of any upcoming event.

Rules for returning to work on site after a positive test result

Staff who test positive are mandated to isolate for 5 days. With a negative official rapid test, it is possible for the employee to return to work but they are obliged to wear an FFP2 mask until the employee has a negative IMB test result.

Further developments

IMB management is continuously monitoring the situation and will update staff and visitors as more information becomes available. We thank you for your support during this time and encourage you to check this page regularly for the most updated information on our onsite operations.
