New Corona Test Regulation

On 30.6.2022 the new Corona test regulation came into force. Free Corona rapid tests are therefore only available under certain conditions.

In particular, vulnerable groups or persons who cannot currently be vaccinated are entitled to a free test. These include, for example, children under 5 years of age, pregnant women in the 1st trimester, or visitors/residents of hospitals/nursing facilities. Furthermore, household members of proven infected persons or persons for whom a test is required to end quarantine will receive a free test.

If these prerequisites are not fulfilled, an own contribution of 3,- EUR per test has to be paid from now on. Proof of the prerequisites for a 3,- EUR citizen test (attendance at an indoor event on the day of the test, contact with persons at risk or red Corona warning app) is based on self-disclosure.

Individuals with symptoms should see a doctor in the future. However, the right to a free PCR test, if the rapid antigen test is positive, still exists.

The website to register for a test at the testing center on campus has now been updated. You can choose between the free citizen test, the citizen test with a 3,- EUR co-payment or the antigen rapid test for 9,90 EUR.
