Notes on PCR testing
Red warning app: no longer a right to PCR test
A red warning message on the app is thus no longer sufficient to obtain a free PCR test. According to the Ministry of Health, those affected should first take a rapid antigen test. The aim is to relieve the burden on laboratories.
In the diagnosis and evaluation of PCR tests, priority will in future be given to high-risk patients, people in vulnerable areas (nursing, integration assistance, home care) and in medical areas (practices, hospital, care, emergency services). However, they too must first have a positive rapid antigen test.
Free testing with rapid antigen test
To further reduce the need for PCR testing, in the future a supervised rapid test will also be sufficient to "clear" oneself early from isolation as an infected person or quarantine as a contact person of infected persons.
The amended testing regulation, which governs coverage of the tests, now goes into effect. PCR tests are to be concentrated on cases in which a positive test result can be assumed, according to the Federal Ministry of Health. The aim is to use the test capacities in a more targeted manner than before due to the current sharp rise in the number of infections.
The list of rapid test centers is updated continuously; there is no claim to completeness, nor can changes at short notice be ruled out.
