Self-test issuance at the University of Siegen

All persons who are not vaccinated or recovered are urged to have a COVID-19 test performed at one of the testing centers prior to attending any event (e.g., course, exam).

In cases where this is not possible, a free opportunity to take supervised self-tests has been made available on the Adolf Reichwein campus. Until September 30, 2021, the tests can be taken Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. in the AR-HB building ("Haardter Berg School"). They will be handed out by trained staff, who will also explain how to take them, if necessary. However, the testing is done by students or employees of the university themselves.

The test result is documented in writing and can be used for internal university use, e.g. as proof for travelers returning home. This test certificate is not valid outside the University of Siegen.

Students

The University of Siegen provides students with self-tests. 1 self-test per person is available to take home.

The distribution station at the Adolf-Reichwein-Straße campus is the Information/Lending Desk of the University Library. The access is signposted. The issue station is open from Monday to Friday (11 am to 2 pm).

At the Information/Loan Desk you can get the self-tests free of charge. The issue is bound to compulsory dates at the university, e.g. courses and exams.

Old Version

On April 9th, the University of Siegen started dispensing self-tests in order to make an additional offer for everyone who does their job "on site".

There are now 3 new regulations that will apply from May 3rd (Monday):

  • 1 self-test per person is available to take away
  • The Moodle course for registration and receipt of the authorization certificate will be set up again. Please note: Anyone who has already carried out the course must do it again in the new version.
  • The dispensing station on Campus US is closed

This dispensing station is available for students:

Attention: no testing will be carried out by university staff, the tests are provided for personal use, e.g. at home. These tests can be carried out by yourself.

The prerequisite for receiving the self-test is prior registration on the university's website and the creation of an authorization certificate.

For this purpose, the Moodle course has been regenerated and must be carried out again, even if the "old" course is still available. The new course will be activated from Friday, April 30th, 2021, around 3 p.m.

The website provides information and instructions on the self-tests, on what to do in case of a positive result as well as on data protection. Please check the documents, especially the information on what to do in case of a positive test result.

If you confirm this on the website, you will be authorized to receive a self-test in the form of a PDF. This document will also be sent to your university email address at the same time. Please bring a printout with you to the test; you only have to present the document, not to hand it over. Alternatively, you can also show the document on your device (e.g. smartphone).

Staff

The University of Siegen offers employees who are occasionally or regularly at the university Corona tests to be able to test themselves twice a week. If possible, the tests should be taken before starting work or before going to work. Employees can obtain these tests from the management of their respective institutions, for example, the dean's offices of the faculties.

Old Version

On April 9th, the University of Siegen started dispensing self-tests in order to make an additional offer for everyone who does their job “on site”.

There is now a new feature that affects you as an employee of the university:

From May 3rd, 2021, individual tests will only be given to students.

From May 3rd, 2021, employees will receive tests from the management of their respective institutions, e.g. the dean's offices of the faculties.

Note: It will no longer be possible to obtain individual tests from the previous stations with the previous eligibility certificate via Moodle from May 3rd, 2021. The dispensing offices are instructed to dispense the individual tests exclusively to students. We kindly ask for your understanding.

For the tests that are handed out to the employees, we use larger test packages made available by the Ministry of Culture and Science (MKW). In these packages, 20 tests are bundled, which are to be given out as a package to individual employees and which can be used in the following weeks.

For the heads of all university facilities/departments, this means that you determine the need for tests for your unit on the basis of the permits you have issued for regular attendance and report it to the occupational health and safety department (Department 1, Department 1.1 ). We have set up a new e-mail address for this: selbsttest@zv.uni-siegen.de

The occupational health and safety department will issue the tests according to a list of priorities agreed by the expert staff. Priority is given to those units that have direct personal contact (e.g. university library). The collection or delivery will be clarified individually between the units and the occupational health and safety department.

For all employees, this means that you will be informed by the management of your facility/department about the organization of dispensing the tests. If you do not receive such information, please contact the management of your institution.

Due to the package tests, the occupational health and safety department cannot issue tests based on individual inquiries (e.g. from an individual); we therefore ask for your understanding that corresponding emails to the above address will be deleted. SHK and WHK are asked to use the care offer for students.
