Precautionary Measures from Vogel Communications Group

We take the concerns of our customers, guests, employees and business partners with regards to the coronavirus very seriously. Your safety and health are our top priority. That is why we are taking appropriate preventive measures and ensuring a high level of hygiene at all Vogel Communications Group locations and in the Vogel Convention Center on the Vogel Campus in Würzburg.

We continue to closely monitor the latest developments of the spread of the coronavirus/COVID-19 and are in direct contact with the authorities.

The World Health Organization (WHO), the Robert Koch Institute and the German authorities right now assess the threat to the health of the population in Germany from the novel pathogen as high.

We adapted operations accordingly and intensified our hygienic measures. As a preventive measure, most of our employees are already working from home.

Through close exchange of information between all parties involved, we guarantee quick reaction to new findings and will adapt the measures of our Group immediately.
