Information to installation and service disployments under covid-19-conditions

Due to the current situation with regard to Covid-19, installation and service work is only possible under difficult conditions.
Therefore, we endeavor to carry out assignments via teleservice, or postpone them if possible.
Enclosed you will find an overview of measures and specifications which currently make our assignments much more time and resource intensive.
Of course we will do our best to support you on site if necessary.
Currently, the following conditions apply to travel activities of our employees.

OUR INTERPRETATION OF THESE REGULATIONS

Since all our employees returning from high-risk areas or very high risk areas must get tested and self-isolate until they receive a negative result, the loss of working hours rises.

OUR INTERPRETATION OF THESE REGULATIONS

Our employees do not need to get tested or self-isolate upon arrival when they came from the countries to which the above exemption applies (see “Information of WKO“)

However, our employees do get tested for Covid-19 (quick covid test) after returning from a trip. This is not an official certificate, it serves only to ensure your and our health and safety.
