Buchholz against compulsory corona test for companies

Schleswig-Holstein's Economics Minister Bernd Buchholz (FDP) has spoken out against the compulsory corona test for companies required by Labor Minister Hubertus Heil (SPD). "Before deciding whether to test, you have to make sure that you can get the tests," said Buchholz on Sunday. Many companies tried to create appropriate test capacities. But that is not easy as there is not enough available at the moment. A test obligation for companies is "rather superfluous".

Heil had said the "Bild am Sonntag", "I want us to decide that on Tuesday in the federal government". The coalition partner Union and the employers have so far refused to test. According to information from "Bild am Sonntag", Heil's plans provide that all employees who are not in the home office have the right to a corona test per week. Anyone who has a lot of customer contact or who works with food should be entitled to two tests. It is sufficient if the employer makes self-tests available to his employees.
