Free rapid coronavirus tests at the Munich Olympic Park
23.04.2021 - Olympiapark München GmbH
The Johanniter organisation will be offering free tests at the Olympic Hall in Munich's Olympic Park from 26 April.
Until all citizens in Germany can be vaccinated, coronavirus rapid tests are an important tool for ensuring safe contact. From Monday 26 April, the Johanniter organisation will be offering free rapid antigen tests in Munich's Olympic Park – everyone can have one free test each week.
The Johanniter organisation's rapid testing centre is located to the north of the Olympic Hall and can be accessibly reached via a signposted footpath between the Olympic Hall and the Olympic Tower. Opening hours are based on demand and can be viewed daily at www.schnelltest-olympiapark.de.
"The swab test is done in a few minutes and the result is sent by e-mail within 15 to 30 minutes after the test," says Florian Weber, Deputy Head of Emergency Services at the Johanniter organisation. "The location in the Olympic Park directly on the Mittlerer Ring and not far from the parking deck at the Olympic Tower is easily accessible on foot, by bike or even by car."
The rapid antigen tests are aimed at all people who have no symptoms of the disease and who want to be sure that they are not infectious without knowing it," says Weber.
You can now register for a test date on the website at www.schnelltest-olympiapark.de. Use online registration whenever possible, as it helps to avoid waiting times and paperwork on site. This way, all the necessary documents can be brought along already completed. Florian Weber has a few requests for the test customers: "Please wear an FFP2 mask outside and in the test centre and be as punctual as possible for your appointment. Do not be too early or too late, as this will save you waiting around. If you are unable to attend at short notice, please cancel your appointment online to free it up for someone else."
The Olympic Park is also pleased to see the new test centre. Managing Director Marion Schöne welcomes the facility to the Olympic Hall: "We support the strategy of increased testing because it is important, along with vaccination, for getting the pandemic under control. It is of course also very practical for us as an employer to have a test centre in-house. Our employees who are not working from home can be tested here before they start work. And also in future, when events become possible again, cooperation with the Johanniter organisation naturally offers us the chance to develop suitable testing services for guests attending events."
