COVID-19 policy


Dear participants,

remember: COVID-19 is still amongst us and infections spread very easily.
Everybody attending ECCO XL is obliged to follow the rules and regulations in Germany (see the current regulations in the Lower Saxony Area, available in different languages, and the city of Braunschweig/Brunswik). A general overview on the coronavirus is provided on the website of the Robert Koch Institut.

Detailed information on travelling to Germany can be obtained from the website of the Federal Foreign Office. In addition, the Federal Ministry of Health provides a FAQ page for Corona Entry Regulations.

Please note that the public transport in Germany still requires to wear a FFP2 mask!

Recommendations from the local ECCO organising committee

  • Please wear a surgical mask, better a FFP2 mask, while attending the ECCO XL meeting and associated events. Please bring enough face masks with you.
  • If you have any symptoms, please immediately refrain from attending the ECCO XL meeting and associated events and isolate yourself.
  • In case of SARS-CoV-2 related symptoms (see WHO webpage) please do a self-test. Available test centres in Braunschweig are listed here.

We appreciate your understanding and are looking forward to meet you at a healthy ECCO XL!
