Self-tests to be used at schools from Monday

Read Time:1 Minute, 43 Second

Starting Monday, the new CoV self-tests for students and teachers will be used in schools – but only to a limited extent due to the postponed return to classroom instruction. With the anterio-nasal tests, a simple swab in the front of the nose is sufficient; a result is available after about 15 minutes. In the future, the tests will be scheduled once a week on Mondays.

Delivery will begin at the weekend, and by Monday or Tuesday at the latest, all schools will be equipped with test kits. However, testing is not yet being carried out on a large scale there. Elementary school students are always given the tests at home anyway, to take together with their parents. In the case of those under 14, a declaration of consent must also first be submitted by the parents before testing is carried out together.

PCR test required after positive test
As of January 25, when according to the current plan all students will return to classes in shifts, the process will work as follows starting at the AHS lower school or middle school: For the first test, children and adolescents will receive instruction at school on how to use the test, for example, through videos or trained personnel such as school physicians. From the second run, they will then either be given the tests to do themselves at home, or the school will stick with a joint implementation.

The new test is supposed to be quite simple and, because it is taken in the front of the nose, it is not painful: After the swab has been taken, it is placed in a folding carton and drizzled with a liquid; the carton is then folded shut. Within a few minutes, the result then appears on the front. If the result is positive, the health authorities must be notified and a PCR test performed.

The test is voluntary and free of charge. Those who do not participate need not fear any consequences and may continue to attend classes.
