From Wednesday, 07 April 2021, you can obtain the coronavirus self-tests from Roche from our pharmacy.
Here you will find the most important facts and information:

When is a self-test recommended?
– For people without symptoms and without contact with Covid-19 cases who want to do a test at home.

When is no self-test recommended?
– No self-test for people who have symptoms of disease. These should do a rapid antigen test at our test centre. Alternatively, a PCR test can be performed.
– No self-testing before visiting particularly vulnerable persons and health facilities.

Who pays for the self-tests?
– The federal government pays for the costs. They are dispensed by showing the health insurance card.

How many self-tests may be obtained from the pharmacy?
– The federal government will cover the cost of a maximum of 5 self-tests per person within 30 days. No advance or retrospective purchases are possible. You can purchase packs of 1 or 5.
– No tests may be purchased at your own expense at this time.

How do I use the self-test correctly?
– We will explain the application to you on site by our qualified staff.
– From 12.4 you will receive self-explanatory instructions (leaflet) from us.
– A package insert is included in each pack.

My test result is positive. What should I do?

– The result must be confirmed immediately by a PCR test. This is also covered by the federal government. Make an appointment with us at the test centre or at your doctor’s office.
