Testing is highly recommended for all people working on-site, whether fully-vaccinated or not, with a frequency of one test every two weeks.
To register to the Covid-19 Self-testing program @CERN, you have to:
- Take the e-learning course
- Sign-up for a saliva self-test using the Plamed tool and choose among the 11 collection points and time slots that suits you best. The full list of self-testing points is available here: https://hse.cern/content/covid-19-auto-testing-places.
You will receive the result of your test the same day you provide your sample. CERN is following a pooled approach, and if your pool tests is positive, you will be required to self-isolate until your individual sample is tested. The result of the individual tests will normally be delivered the same evening, and only individuals who test positive will be required to continue self-isolating after this time.
Please also note that no COVID certificate is delivered through CERN’s self-testing programme, but CERN does offer free certificated testing for those going on duty travel.
Testing is free of charge.
