Covid tests at IST Austria

IST Austria employees, their family members as well as the citizens of Klosterneuburg/Kierling/Maria Gugging and people living nearby should be able to get tested voluntarily for the Corona virus on a regular basis. One option would be to set up a collaboration with a nearby pharmacy which would carry out the testing. IST Austria would provide the location.

Why is this important?

The upcoming third wave and the spread of the mutations of the Corona virus that are more infectious demand for a strong response. Regular testing is an important measure to identify Covid clusters quickly, allow contact tracing, and thus help to keep the infection numbers low. We must do everything we can to have low infection numbers rates to prevent even more dangerous mutations!


Reasons for signing

  • If there is one thing the last year taught us, I think, is that we should be proactive rather then reactive to handling this pandemic. It would also reassure IST collaborators that might need to visit to perform essential work.
  • A sensible thing to do. In addition to employees health, it will also be a positive step towards giving better access to testing to the neighborhood community! also collaboration with pharmacy can be a good use of some of the empty seminar rooms built from tax payer’s money!
  • As a basic research institution is the only sensitive thing to do given the situation on Terra!
