Keep your distance

Help make the fair run safely and smoothly: keep a minimum distance of 1.5 metres between yourself and other people at all times.

3

Wear a face mask

There will be clear rules regarding face masks at the book fair. They will be adapted to the current situation and announced shortly before the event.

4

Protect others through responsible behaviour

Sneeze or cough into the crook of your arm and turn away from other people. Please also avoid shaking hands and all other forms of physical contact. Make sure to wash your hands regularly and thoroughly.

5

If you fall ill, then please stay at home

If you have any symptoms which could indicate a Covid-19 infection (e.g. a cough or a fever, loss of smell or taste) then you will not be granted access to the exhibition grounds.
The same applies if you have been put under quarantine by the health authorities.

Our measures on the fair ground:

6

Disinfectant dispensers on the premises

Disinfectant dispensers are located at all entrances to the exhibition grounds, as well as at the entrances to the individual exhibition levels, in the restrooms, at the catering outlets, and in the restaurants.

7

Disinfect surfaces

Cleaning intervals will be adjusted and the cleaning of highly frequented areas and touch surfaces will be intensified.

8

Ventilation and air exchange

We will ensure an above-average rate of air exchange along with ventilation that uses the highest possible proportion of fresh air – everywhere and at all times. Ventilation and aircon systems at the fair will be fitted with high-functioning filters.
