On April 13th
, a Covid-19 rapid test drive-in has been opened in front of the Camping- und Ferienpark Havelberge. On behalf of the Mecklenburg Lake district, especially trained employees of ‘Haveltourist’ carry out the antigen PoC rapid tests. These are so-called ‘citizen tests’. According to the test ordinance, all citizens are entitled to these tests free of charge at least once a week. Online registration with appointment is required (www.haveltourist.de
). The identity card must be shown. In a short time after the smear test and evaluation, a certificate is issued online and sent by e-mail. It is valid for 24 hours. Dr. Gunter Riechey, managing partner of Haveltourist: ‘In coordination with the mayor of our municipality Userin, Axel Malonek, we wanted to offer a quick and convenient solution nearby to the citizens of the municipality. The participation in the fight and repression of the Covid-19 pandemic is a personal concern of me’. Camping and vacation guests of Haveltourist can also get tested here. However, at the moment this only applies to permanent guests, because at present, in all of Germany touristic overnight stays are not yet possible.
