Corona self-tests at the University of Siegen

According to the requirements of the state government, participation in courses, examinations and events in presence is only possible at the University of Siegen with proof of immunity (vaccinated or recovered) or a certified negative test proof (3G rule). The test proof must not be older than 48 hours.

On this page you will find information about the possibilities for self-testing at the University of Siegen from October 1, 2021.

Students

Students and employees arriving in Germany from abroad in the winter semester 2021/22 who have not yet had the opportunity to be immunized (with a vaccine approved in Germany) are strongly recommended by the University of Siegen to be vaccinated as soon as possible.

For the interim period until full vaccination protection is available, the University is offering free supervised self-testing for these University members from October 1st to November 30th in the Haardter Berg School Forum. This offer is also valid for all university members (students + employees) who have already received at least one vaccination, but whose vaccination protection is not yet complete. [Update 10-11-2021 12 pm]

The test result is documented in writing, is valid for 48 hours and can only be used for internal university use. Outside the University of Siegen this test certificate is not valid.

The opening hours for the self-tests are: Monday through Friday from 8 am to 11 am.

Note: Upon request, it is also possible to obtain self-tests to take home. Please contact the Occupational Health and Safety team.

University employees who are unable to be vaccinated for medical reasons will continue to be offered free public testing, such as at testing centers and pharmacies, according to federal and state government plans.

University employees who voluntarily decline the offer of vaccination, like all citizens, will have the option of citizen testing.
There is no free offer from the university.

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.

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 institutions, this means that they determine the need for testing for their area and report it to the Occupational Health and Safety Department (Dezernat 1, Abteilung 1.1). The mail address for this is: selbsttest@zv.uni-siegen.de

The Occupational Health and Safety Department will issue the tests. Pick-up or delivery will be cleared individually between the units and the Occupational Health and Safety Department.

For all employees (including SHK & WHK), this means that they will be informed by the management of your facility about the organization of the distribution of the tests. If you do not receive such information, please contact the management of your facility.

Due to the package tests, the Occupational Health & Safety department cannot issue tests based on individual requests (e.g. from an individual); we ask for your understanding that corresponding e-mails to the above address will be deleted.
