Important Information on Testing Obligation After Returning to Work After Five or More Days

July 8th, 2021 | by

The new Coronavirus Protection Ordinance stipulates a one-off testing requirement, effective from tomorrow, Friday, July 9, for all employees returning to work on site for the first time following a vacation of at least five consecutive working days and comparable leaves of absence from work.

Employees must present a valid negative test, proof that they are fully vaccinated, or proof of recovery from infection to their respective supervisors on their first day back to work. Alternatively, employees can also take a documented, supervised self-test at the beginning of this workday in compliance with employee testing under Section 4 of the Coronavirus Test and Quarantine Ordinance. The self-tests can still be obtained free of charge from the RWTH Purchasing Portal.

Employees and their respective superiors are both equally responsible for compliance with this regulation.

You will soon be able to find further information in the FAQs.
