Rapid antigen testing for employees and the general population – Testing units 15 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 reminded that employees who have received the 1st dose of a licenced vaccine and three weeks have elapsed, are not obliged to undergo the weekly rapid antigen testing.
