People with obvious cold or flu symptoms are not allowed to enter the archive.

It is mandatory to wear your own mouth and nose protection.

Personal user advice can only be carried out to a limited extent and in compliance with the distance rules. Support for working on the PC and reading documents is therefore not possible.
