Rapid antigen testing units – 12 June 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 rapid antigen testing of at least 50% of the personnel working with physical presence, is ensured.

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 understood that exempt from the above regulation are the employees who have received the 1st dose of a licenced vaccine and three weeks have elapsed from their vaccination. For example, if a company/organization/department of the public/wider public sector employs 20 people with physical presence, of which 12 have received the 1st dose of the vaccine, the obligation for weekly testing concerns the other 8 individuals (4+4).

On Saturday, 12 June the testing units will be operating in the following areas:
