The Ebreichsdorfer COVID test street opens every working day after Easter. City municipality employs medically trained staff, is a pilot municipality for “Lollypop tests” and has been registered for a vaccination route since January. Mayor Wolfgang Kocevar: “Chaos caused by chaotic and short-term federal regulations must come to an end.”
EBREICHSDORF. “We take on responsibility and quintuple the current offer” is the message that Mayor Wolfgang Kocevar announced at the press conference in the presence of City Councilor Thomas Dobousek and the paramedics from the Samaritan Association Natascha Bachleitner and Patrick Postl. On the same day, a new record was set in the test street next to the town hall: 645 tests in three hours. Which means both a huge responsibility and a burden for the testers.
Expect new tightening
Also with regard to possible tightening of the access restrictions to the trade and a shortened validity of the tests (from 48 to 24 hours), the mayor sat down with City Councilor Thomas Dobousek and the Samaritan to provide a corresponding offer. The municipality of Ebreichsdorf employs two people with medical training – one of whom is Patrick Postl – to meet the additional demand. The mayor thanks the Samaritans who supported the community in organizing the medical staff and the volunteers who helped out in the test street.
Testzeiten in Ebreichsdorf
In addition to the previous opening times Monday 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and Wednesday and Friday 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. (with three test roads) the Ebreichsdorf test road will open from April 7th (with one test road) every working day from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m..
“With 46 hours per week, there will be a sufficient range of rapid tests to implement the current test strategy,” said Kocevar.
Pilot community for lollypop tests
As one of five pilot communities in Lower Austria, Ebreichsdorf will also offer “lollypop tests” in the Weigelsdorf kindergarten after Easter. This means that another free test offer is also available for kindergarten children.
Registered for Impfstrasse
The municipality registered with the state of Lower Austria for a vaccination route back in January. Mayor Kocevar is confident that the citizens of Ebreichsdorf – who want that – can be vaccinated as soon as enough vaccines are available.
In conclusion, Thomas Dobousek – the new City Councilor for Health and Social Affairs – once again praised the commitment of all those involved: “Everyone gets involved and contributes to the success of a good solution.”
