According to § 6 of the Corona-ArbSchV, the validity of the Occupational Health and Safety Ordinance is limited to 30.06.2021.
However, on 11.06.2021, the Bundestag extended the epidemic emergency until 30.09.2021. This would allow the federal government, without the approval of the Bundesrat, to extend the validity of the Corona Occupational Health and Safety Regulation beyond June 30, 2021.
If the regulation is not extended beyond June 30, 2021, due to the current Corona situation, employers may continue to offer the tests on a voluntary basis to reduce workplace infection risk. Every company and every employee who continues to participate in the tests reduces the risk of infecting their own colleagues or even their own family.
