Of the 15 million rapid tests ordered by the government, 6 million are reserved for companies and their employees.

Upon enquiry, Minister of Labour Dan Kersch confirmed that rapid tests will be made available to every employee as of May.

Besides employees, civil servants and self-employed workers will also be able to benefit from the tests. The goal is that everyone will have the option to test themselves two times a week on a voluntary basis.

The government is currently working on an overall distribution concept. It is, for instance, yet to be decided whether employees will receive the tests directly or whether they will be given to their respective employers.
