Corona Virus – Information

Invited guests

Information for already invited guests with a starting date in June, July and August 2020.

If you have not yet booked a flight or accommodation, please wait before doing so and book only at short notice. We do not know how the situation will change and can only recommend not to book anything yet. If you have booked your flight already, check this link to rebook or cancel for free.

If you have already booked an accommodation, please contact the landlord immediately to cancel the contract and try to find a solution for both sides.

You are still welcome to start your research stay at the institute as planned, but please be aware that you have to be in quarantine in your apartment for two weeks, if you arrive from outside the EU.

Unfortunately, we cannot postpone the beginning of your visit, since our office space is already fully booked. However, you can shorten your visit if needed. You can also choose the option to reapply through our online application system (no new recommendation letters are needed in this case).

Please be so kind and inform us about your plans by e-mail.


Current guests

Information for guests who are already in Bonn

  • We recommend that you only leave your accommodation, if it is really necessary and work virtually from home as much as possible.
  • Please do not plan, book or confirm any appointments at the moment.
  • Please avoid any travel.
  • Our staff will work mostly from home but will be still available by e-mail and for urgent requests in person in the institute every Wednesday until
    further notice.
  • The reception and IT at the MPIM will be staffed as usual.
  • The daily tea will not take place until further notice.
  • Only staff and authorized people with an entrance card will be allowed to enter the institute. External people (means: no entrance card) are not allowed to enter the institute until further notice.
  • We explicitly point out that you have to report every confirmed case of Covid-19 to us and ask you to also inform us if you have suspicious symptoms.

Overall, we ask you to make responsible decisions for you and other people to help slow down the infection rate by:

  • meticulously cleaning and disinfecting your hands and surroundings,
  • strengthening your immune system by reducing stress, sleeping well and following current medical recommendations,
  • keeping at least a 2m distance and
  • avoiding groups of people.

For further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us by e-mail.

We wish you good health and a positive mindset!

We thank you for your understanding and will keep you updated about the situation.
