Safety concept / measures and precautions

SIAF is fully aware of its responsibility towards guests, partners, service providers and employees and adheres to the guidelines of the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH), the legal requirements of the COVID-19 ordinance and the labor law.

We enjoy the privilege of welcoming you back to the University as part of our evening lectures, we conduct them with Covid-19 certificate obligation (vaccinated or recovered) and apply the relevant security concept. The Covid certificate is intended to ensure that events are held safely, as the risk of infection for visitors is kept low. At events with Covid certification, the full capacity of the room can be used. A mask-wearing requirement exists in all publicly accessible indoor rooms of the UZH. General information about the University of Zurich can be found on the corresponding website, in particular on regulations and the safety concepts.

We urge everyone to personally contribute to their own safety and the safety of all others:

  • Adhere to the behavioral and precautionary measures according to the FOPH at all times.
  • Wash your hands regularly with soap and water or disinfect your hands.
  • Keep a distance of 1.5 meters from each other.


  • If you have not been feeling well or have shown acute symptoms of respiratory illness in the past 10 days, please refrain from attending: If you have symptoms of illness, you may be refused to attend.
  • Admission will only be granted upon presentation of your valid Covid certificate (2G) in conjunction with your ID (a photo or a copy of the documents is not sufficient).
  • A mask-wearing requirement exists in all publicly accessible indoor rooms of the UZH, and therefore also during the event.


In addition to the event at the university, we will broadcast speech and discussion live on the Internet. This allows for a virtual presence if there is no more space available on site or if one does not want to or cannot attend the event in person for other reasons.

Thank you for your understanding and support.
