Corona Notes

Current information on CoViD-19 / SARS-CoV-2 Omicron / Corona 2024

We are happy to be there for you even in Corona times!

Our on-call service is here for you, even in a crisis. We also perform swabbing for Corona (Covid-19) PCR testing. Our labs call us after 6 to 24 hours, depending on workload. We will then contact you immediately to discuss the results of the CoVid-19 test. All other illnesses also continue and should receive adequate medical care. Our physicians will also come to you in protective clothing. For us, a thorough examination is always part of the process. Telemedicine is prone to error and should only be used when there is no other way.

We always have enough capacity to offer home visits on short notice. So please do not hesitate, we are happy to be on the road for you

+++ Update: In Berlin, as of February 13, 2023, there are no specific Berlin coronavirus measures in place, as the Berlin Corona Ordinance has been lifted. In the event of illness, it is recommended to get tested for a SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus infection, you can call us to get a homevisit eg to your hotel. If tested positive, one should avoid contact with others and, if unavoidable, wear an FFP2 mask without an exhalation valve.

Corona in Berlin 2024

Since March 1, 2023, coronavirus tests for citizens are generally chargeable, and there is no longer a statutory mask mandate, although facilities can request mask-wearing within their rights. The testing requirement in hospitals and nursing homes, as well as the general testing requirement, were also lifted on March 1, 2023.

Vaccinations remain a central part of pandemic control. The coronavirus vaccinations are free of charge and are recommended to protect oneself and others. The Standing Committee on Vaccination (STIKO) recommends vaccination for individuals over 18 years of age with incomplete basic immunity and for specific groups such as children from 6 months and adolescents with underlying diseases, as well as pregnant women from the second trimester.

Further booster vaccinations are recommended for individuals over 60 years of age, those with underlying diseases, residents of nursing facilities, medical professionals, and close contacts of immunocompromised individuals. The current COVID-19 indicators and evaluations can be viewed on the website of the Berlin Health Administration.

Home visits also for Corona patients in home quarantine.

All our on-call physicians also examine and treat patients suffering from SARS-CoV-2 in quarantine at home. Often the question arises whether a transfer to a hospital makes sense, here our doctors can give a well-founded second opinion if necessary. In most cases, the infection can be overcome well at home. A home visit by one of our doctors can be a good support.

For scheduled home visits, the easiest way is to use our online form if a home visit is desired today please contact our switchboard.
