In times of the pandemic, many companies are faced with the question of how the risk of infection for employees, customers and clients can be limited in the best possible way and how services and products can still be produced and sold economically. It is particularly problematic that at least half of the infections come from people who do not show any signs of illness. Therefore, the goal must be to find and isolate as many infected people as possible in the first days after infection. To do this, it is necessary to specifically test as many asymptomatic people as necessary.
The protection concept essentially consists of two pillars:
1. a digital, regular survey of all employees::
This makes it possible to classify employees into risk categories A to E, depending on the risk of exposure or relevance for maintaining operations as well as the risk potential for third parties. Based on the result of the individual risk classification, the employees can take concrete rules of conduct from the guideline "Coronavirus: How to behave correctly" (e.g. wear a mask, if necessary saliva and gargle water test).
2. regular testing of system-relevant or particularly exposed employees by means of a PCR gargle test: Depending on the current pandemic situation, these should be tested at regular intervals, if necessary up to daily, using saliva gargle tests and isothermal RT-PCR test procedures (ender MASS). In a further expansion stage, antigen tests will also be used.
