In accordance with the new Ordinance on temporary measures for the prevention and control of infections with the infectious disease COVID-19, new measures have been introduced, in particular in proving compliance with the RVT condition (recovery, vaccination and testing) and wearing masks. THE RVT condition is deemed to be complied with if the person presents a valid identity document and proof of recovery, vaccination or testing. Only a surgical mask or a FFP2 mask is recognised and approved for use as a protective mask; fabric masks are no longer approved. All other preventive measures (hand disinfection, ventilation…) must also be considered.

R - Recovered

The recovery condition may be proved in two ways:

  • a certificate of a positive PCR test result that is older than 10 days but not older than 6 months;

V – Vaccinated

The vaccination condition may be proved by means of:

  • an EU Digital COVID Certificate in digital or paper format and with a QR code (EU DCC);
  • a digital COVID certificate of a third country in digital or paper format with a QR code, which must contain at least the same data as the EU DCC and be issued in English by a competent health authority of the third country (DCC of a third country).
  • The certificate must attest that the person has received:
    • the second dose of the Comirnaty vaccine produced by Biontech/Pfizer, the Spikevax vaccine (COVID-19 Vaccine) produced by Moderna, the Sputnik V vaccine produced by Russia’s Gamaleya National Centre of Epidemiology and Microbiology, the CoronaVac vaccine produced by Sinovac Biotech, the COVID-19 Vaccine produced by Sinopharm, the Vaxzevria vaccine (COVID-19 Vaccine) produced by AstraZeneca, or the Covishield vaccine produced by the Serum Institute of India/AstraZeneca or a combination of two different vaccines under this point;
    • the first dose of the COVID-19 Vaccine Janssen by Johnson and Johnson/Janssen-Cilag.

For persons who can demonstrate recovery with one of the listed pieces of evidence and have been vaccinated with one of the listed vaccines within the period of up to 180 days since receiving a positive PCR test or since the onset of symptoms, one dose is sufficient. The status of a vaccinated person applies as of the date of vaccination.

T - Tested

The tested condition for students and employees may be proved by means of:

  • employees
    • with a HAG test and a HAG test for self-testing not older than 48 hours
  • students:
    • by testing three times a week with HAG tests for self-testing on the premises of a higher education institution

Students receive free self-testing packs at the pharmacy. Employees receive free self-testing packs at work.
