Corona rapid tests

From 19 April 2021, two tests per week are to be compulsory, as the Senate Department for Education announced after the switch. The tests will then no longer be conducted at home, but at school. As a rule, there will also continue to be alternating teaching in learning groups with half the class size. As before, grades 7 to 9 will remain exempt for the time being. They are expected to follow from 19 April.
