Corona self-tests at the University of Siegen
On this page you will find information about the opportunities for self-testing at the University of Siegen.
The University of Siegen offers employees Corona self-tests on an ad hoc basis, e.g. upon return from vacation, contact with a person suffering from Covid or after attending an event. Employees can thus test themselves before resuming service to the University. In this context, please note that this offer serves the purpose of infection control at the university and is not intended for private use. The number of tests in stock takes this into account, as demand is expected to be limited accordingly.
Currently, single tests ("EXACT SIGN") are issued. It is possible that your institution still has 20-test packages ("CLINITEST") in stock. Please refer to the appropriate instructions.
Employees will continue to receive these tests exclusively through the heads of their respective institutions, for example, the dean's offices of the faculties.
The heads of all university institutions / demand notifiers request the demand for your area as usual from the Department of Occupational Health and Safety (Dezernat 1, Abteilung 1.1). The mail address for this is: firstname.lastname@example.org
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. Therefore, the Occupational Health and Safety Department will not issue the tests to individuals. Therefore, please understand that individual emails to the functional address will not be handled.
For all employees (also SHK & WHK) this means that they will be informed by the management of your institution about the organization of the issue of these occasion-related tests. If you do not receive such information, please contact the management of your facility.
