Starting next week, all Viennese will have the opportunity to have themselves checked regularly as part of the corona test initiative “Alles gurgelt”. Until now, participation was only possible for selected companies and organizations. The PCR tests are free and can be performed at home. The samples can now be handed in at all Rewe locations.
The pilot project started at the end of January. In the meantime, 5,500 participating companies with more than 330,000 employees have already registered. Now the city and the Vienna Chamber of Commerce have rolled out the test offer. In addition, the capacities at the laboratory partner Lifebrain and the tax network have been massively expanded, it said on Friday at the presentation.
The test kits from the manufacturer Lead Horizion can still be picked up in one of the 152 BIPA branches. Once the test has been completed, it is now possible to hand it in at all over 620 Rewe locations throughout Vienna – i.e. at Billa, Merkur, Bipa, Penny or petrol stations with REWE shops. The latter are also available for this on Sunday. (apa)
