COVID-19 current prevention measures

Dear Participants!

We would like to inform you – in time before your arrival – about the COVID-19 prevention measures of the ELIA Artistic Research Platform Meeting on 20.10.2021 as well as the Multiplier Conference Multiplier Conference “Advancing Supervision for Artistic Research Doctorates (and beyond)” on 21. and 22.10.2021 and ask you to sincerely take note.

We are not telling you anything new when we report about the pandemic in Austria! If you show – even slight – symptoms of illness (e.g. stuffy nostril, scratchy throat), we ask you, before you leave your home or hotel room or … to take a test, wear an FFP2 mask and stay at home until you have received your negative test result!

• Contact data collection
• Adherence to distance regulations
• Adherence to cough and sneeze etiquette
• Adherence to the FFP2 obligation

In the buildings of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, FFP2 masks are mandatory in the public rooms. Please make sure that you can arrive with a sufficient number of FFP2 masks or get them at e.g. any drugstore or pharmacy upon arrival in Vienna.

Due to the number of persons (ELIA Meeting: approx. 40 persons, Conference: approx. 100 persons) we will follow the official COVID-19 prevention measures of the City of Vienna during our meetings. This means that the so-called 2.5G regulation will be applied: PCR-tested, vaccinated, or recovered. Your official proof will be checked at the entrance daily before entering the Academy and you will have to register. Please note that in Vienna PCR-test certificates are only valid for 48 hours after sampling!

FREE PCR SELF-TESTS: allesgurgelt.at
Everyone who lives or works in Vienna now has the possibility of taking a PCR test (gargle test method) for COVID-19 regularly and free of charge. This service is now also open for tourists. You need a barcode from the website to pick up your test sets at any BIPA outlet in Vienna. If you have no social security number, you must follow a specific procedure for entering your data: 0000+your date of birth in the day/month/year format (e.g. 0000241290). After performing the test, you can hand in the samples easily on a daily basis at any REWE outlet in Vienna (Billa, Merkur, BIPA and Penny as well as all petrol station shops of BP-Merkur Inside, JET-Billa Stop & Shop, SHELL-Billa Unterwegs). If you hand in your samples before 9 a.m., you will receive the result within a period of 24 hours via email. The result is valid for 48 hours.
A limited number of test sets (for follow up testing) will be provided by the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna!

Our COVID-19 Prevention officer recommends to also test regularly if you are already fully immunized through the one to three vaccinations (or recovery and already vaccinated) as vaccine breakthroughs are on the rise.

During the meeting, as well as during the conference, our COVID-19 prevention officer strongly recommends wearing the FFP2 whenever the distance of 1.5 meters cannot be maintained.

When lining up at the buffet, the FFP2 mask must be worn and the distance of 1.5 meters from other people must be maintained at any time. Please note that only 4 people are allowed per bar table (sufficient bar tables will be provided) and also during lunch settings.

Since the catering industry in Vienna has different requirements than event organizers, we ask you to observe the respective regulations in the canteen of the Academy (“Mensa”) and also in other restaurants, our beloved coffee houses, bars etc. outside the Academy.
