Anyone who has symptoms or close contact with a confirmed case should get tested urgently. The Confederation will pay the test costs in this case.
Repetitive testing in training and health care facilities as well as companies will continue to be recommended and financed by the Confederation.
In health care facilities: Repetitive tests are introduced or continued for employees, patients and residents in order to protect particularly vulnerable persons.
In schools, universities and childcare facilities: Repetitive testing will be continued to help normalise teaching, school life and care, and to nip infection outbreaks in the bud.
Repetitive testing in companies will continue to be promoted
