COVID-19 screening in Berlin schools and kindergartens
If you work at a Berlin school or kindergarten, you can get tested for free to find out if you have an active SARS-CoV-2 infection.
Help stop the spread of coronavirus
In cooperation with Data4Life and Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, the Berlin Senate is offering COVID-19 tests to school and kindergarten employees. School screening is part of the Berlin Senate’s testing strategy to restore public health and social life in Berlin. The tests are voluntary and free of charge.
Testing is only available for school employees without symptoms.
What to expect
The particular type of test used for school screening in Berlin only detects if you have an active SARS-CoV-2 infection. We currently do not offer antibody testing, which would tell you if you had a past infection.
If you have been exposed to children with symptoms or are concerned about your personal risk of infection, visit one of the Charité test centers in Berlin and register with Data4Life to receive your results securely on your smartphone, tablet, or computer.
Important: Please do not visit a testing center if you are currently experiencing cold symptoms such as coughing, runny nose, sore throat, or fever. Contact your doctor or call 116 117.
How to get tested
Attention: These steps apply exclusively to the Charité testing center at Augustenburger Platz 1, 13353 Berlin (on the clinic premises Mittelallee 1). Creating a Data4Life account is optional and only required if you would like to receive your results digitally.
If you would like an appointment at one of the four other examination centers, please contact them by telephone:
