Rapid antigen testing for employees and the general population – Testing units 28 February 2021

Aiming at the continuous surveillance of the community and the workplaces, the free programmes of rapid antigen testing of the general population and employees are in progress.

For the smooth and safe operation of businesses that have been activated according to the Decrees, employers in businesses, as well as the Heads of Departments/Services in the public and wider public sector, are obliged to coordinate the rapid testing of the employees, so that the mandatory weekly testing of the personnel, through the rapid antigen test, is ensured as follows:

  • Businesses/services employing up to 3 people, all employees should be tested.
  • Businesses/services employing between 4 to 10 people, at least 4 employees should be tested.
  • Businesses/services employing more than 11 people, at least 4 people or 20% of employees should be tested, whichever is higher in number.

Additionally, the self-employed and the domestic employees and/or people caring for elders or disabled persons or people providing assistance to individuals who are unable to take care of themselves are obligated to participate in the program.  

It is recalled that all teachers and school staff are required to undergo a weekly check with a rapid antigen test. The certificate of negative result is a prerequisite for their return to their place of work as of 1st March and should be presented during checks. At the same time, it is strictly recommended that students undergo a rapid test, with the consent of their parents/guardians.

Thus, employees may proceed to the testing units operating in all Districts, according to the plan designed by the employer/head. On Sunday 28 February, the testing units will be operating as follows:
