The Corona Decree for Higher Education and the Arts has expired at the end of April 2, 2022 after the legal basis for the previous measures has been lifted by the federal government by amending the act on the prevention and control of infectious diseases (IfSG). This means that it is possible to have unrestricted in-person study operations at the HKA. The  State's general Corona regulations will now apply.
