BAuA has formulated and compiled answers to frequently asked questions (FAQ) concerning health care, laboratories, personal safety equipment and disinfectants.

Further BAuA FAQs on specialist technical, organisational and personal measures expand on the SARS-CoV-2 occupational safety standard of the Federal Ministry for Labour and Social Affairs (BMAS), which formulates the requirements for occupational safety during the coronavirus crisis.

In addition to answers to key questions about the coronavirus (FAQ), our German-language website also provides you with news updates on the classification of SARS-CoV-2, for example, or the exceptional-case approvals that have been issued for hand disinfectants and surface disinfectants. We have also compiled important links, technical rules and resolutions that are of importance for the management of the coronavirus.
