Information to installation and service disployments under covid-19-conditions

Due to the current situation with regard to Covid-19, installation and service work is only possible under difficult conditions.
Therefore, we endeavor to carry out assignments via teleservice, or postpone them if possible.
Enclosed you will find an overview of measures and specifications which currently make our assignments much more time and resource intensive.
Of course we will do our best to support you on site if necessary.
Currently, the following conditions apply to travel activities of our employees.

National specifications

The following applies to entry into NRW from a risk area abroad (according to the RKI):

  • A digital entry declaration must be made prior to entry: www.einreiseanmeldung.de; The confirmation of the successful digital entry notification must be carried on entry.
  • A negative test result (PCR or rapid test, not older than 48 hours) must be carried on entry, kept and presented on request.
  • If a test cannot be carried out within 48 hours before entry, it must be carried out within 24 hours after entry. The person entering the country must then remain in isolation until the negative test result is received.

Special regulations apply to entry into NRW from regions with a particularly high risk of infection = regions with particularly high numbers of cases (high incidence areas) and regions where certain virus variants (virus variant areas) have spread (according to the RKI):

  • A digital entry declaration must be made prior to entry: www.einreiseanmeldung.de; The confirmation of the successful digital entry declaration must be carried on entry.
  • A negative test result (PCR or rapid test, swab taken not older than 48 hours) must be carried on entry. If this is not possible, the test can be carried out upon entry. The test result must be submitted to the competent health authority within 48 hours of entry.
  • Persons entering the country must immediately undergo a 10-day isolation period.
  • Five days after entry, another PCR or rapid test must be carried out. If this test is negative, the isolation can be terminated prematurely.

Our handling of this regulation

As all our employees have to be tested after returning from designated risk areas and have to go into seclusion until the negative test result is available, there is a loss of working hours.

National specifications

Test/quarantine obligation:

A negative molecular biological test for SARS-CoV-2 not older than 48 hours must be submitted for entry. 
Alternatively, a 10-day quarantine must be completed. 

Exception to the quarantine obligation:

According to §8, this does not apply to business trips in the context of commuting from certain countries. (see "Information of WKO")

Our handling of this regulation

Our employees are not required to undergo testing or quarantine upon entry, provided that they were in the designated countries for which these exceptions apply. (see "Information of WKO")

Nevertheless, we subject our employees to a quick test when they return home. However, this test has no official character, but only serves our and your safety.
