Rapid antigen testing for employees and the general population – Testing units 6 May 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 5 people, all employees should be tested.
  • Businesses/services employing more than 5 people, at least 50% of employees should be tested.

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 without exception are required to undergo a weekly check with a rapid antigen test. The negative result certificate should be presented during the checks.

Thus, employees may proceed to the testing units operating in all Districts, according to the plan designed by the employer/head. On Thursday, 6 May, the testing units will be operating as follows:
