In Tübingen, there are still free rapid corona tests without prerequisites. The German Red Cross (DRK) offers these tests three times a week: on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. According to DRK, the test station that is located in front of the Uhlandbad in Tübinger Karlstraße is open from 12.30 p.m. to 5.30 p.m.
In other places in Tübingen´s districts and countrywide, new rules for tests will be applied from July. Among the rules, free rapid tests can be offered for several groups like children under five years of age, pregnant women in the first three months, people who need a test as proof of the end of their quarantine, patients going to hospitals and old people’s homes, and now also caring relatives, and disabled people with their carers. However, there are also three cases those who want to attend any indoor events on the day of the test – for example, a concert – should pay three euros for the test. Visitors who will visit people who are at high risk of becoming seriously ill on the day of the test also should pay three euros. Moreover, the test costs three euros for everyone who had a risk warning on their Corona warning app. These three groups also have to prove their cases, whether with an admission ticket to a concert or a visiting form from the old people’s home. If you want to be tested without any of the above reasons or occasions, you have to pay for the test yourself. However, anyone who has symptoms should visit his or her family doctor for testing. Then, this test will be billed by the health insurance companies.
