Starting January 10th, more tests in schools

During the Christmas vacations, more students may have contracted the highly contagious Omicron virus – on vacation or at family gatherings. That’s why there will be more Corona tests in Baden-Württemberg after schools reopen on January 10th. Students are to take a quick test every day during the first week of school, starting Monday. This is stated in a letter from the Ministry of Education. Exceptions will be made for all students and teachers who have already received a booster vaccination. They do not have to get tested. Also, people who have recovered and have been vaccinated at least once do not need to be tested. From the second week after the vacations until the Carnival vacations (Faschingsferien) at the end of February, students are expected to take three rapid tests per week. The state is providing 26 million euros for the additional tests. The mask requirement remains in place.
