Covid tests

Zwei Reagenzgläser werden in der Hand gehalten

For your personal protection and to protect those around you, you can get tested with a self-test, a rapid test (PoC antigen test) or a PCR test for the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. Before meeting vulnerable persons you should take a Covid test as a precaution.

The claims for testing in the scope of the current coronavirus test regulation expired on 1 March 2023. This meant that free citizen testing according to § 4a TestV was only possible until 28 February 2023 within the framework of the Test Ordinance.
If a test centre continues to offer testing on its premises, since 1 March 2023 it has been a purely private-sector offer. The tests can then no longer be billed via the test regulation and will be charged to the test persons. As a trader, each test site operator decides independently whether the test site will be closed or continue to operate as a private-sector offer.

Reporting a test

You can report a positive rapid or PCR test online to the responsible public health office. You can only report positive tests from certified testing centres, not self-tests that were carried out without supervision by qualified persons.
