Estrel implements use of Covid-19 rapid tests
Estrel Berlin is incorporating yet another component into its comprehensive hygiene and safety concept: Covid-19 rapid tests will now be used at events.
The rapid antigen tests are carried out onsite by healthcare professionals and the results are available within 15 minutes. Depending on the number of people to be tested, a corresponding signposting system with various test lines ensures that adequate social distancing is maintained during the testing process. Working with assigned testing time windows further ensures a minimization of contact. This procedure enables up to 500 event guests per hour to be tested quickly and safely. The event organizer is requested to bear the costs for the tests, which the Estrel is offering without any additional mark-up.
Offering event clients and guests even more protection, this additional safety measure is an enhancement to the Estrel Berlin's already existing hygiene and safety concept which the city's health authorities have classified as absolutely exemplary.
This concept includes, among other things, biometric fever screening upon entering the hotel or congress centre, contactless doorways, climate & temperature control systems functioning with a supply of 100% fresh air in all conference rooms, digital social distance measuring, and the tracking of viral infection chains in accordance with data protection laws for event participants. Above all, the Estrel Congress Center (ECC), with its 25,000 sqm of event space and spacious outdoor areas has plenty of room to orchestrate events and visitor navigation of the property in accordance with social distancing requirements. In addition, the Estrel scores high marks for its well-equipped event technology department and its capability to professionally implement digitally accompanied events.
