ESMT is carefully monitoring current developments, safety advice, and alerts regarding the outbreak of novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) to be able to respond swiftly if the need arises. We are following the recommendations and instructions of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Robert Koch Institut (RKI) in Germany. We are regularly checking updates from both institutions to inform our community if the situation within Germany or Berlin changes.
