The platform where school pupils, teachers and other staff involved in the running of schools can report the results of self-tests for Covid-19 conducted at home was opened and available to users from Sunday.

On the ‘self-testing.gov.gr’ platform, students, teachers, administrative and school support staff are obliged to declare whether the result of the test they have conducted at home is positive or negative and can obtain a certification of a negative test, which they must bring with them in order to be admitted into schools on Monday.

The plan is for self-testing to be carried out twice a week by every pupil and teacher, with each of them entitled to receive two free tests per week from their local pharmacy, using their AMKA social security number. The results of the first test must be displayed upon arrival at school on Monday morning and of the second on Thursday morning.

For Special Schools, testing is mandatory for teachers and strongly recommended for pupils, either late on Sunday or early on Monday morning.

The self-testing.gov.gr platform can be accessed using the taxisnet system username and password. If there is no printer at home, a hand-written declaration with the same information can be presented.

If the test is positive, the same platform will issue a certificate for a positive test result that must be presented to a public health facility for a free repeat test, while the platform provides a link with information on the repeat testing locations and their hours of operation, from Monday to Friday and on Sunday.

If the repeat test is also positive, then the National Public Health Organisation Covid-19 protocol will be followed while if negative, a certificate will be issued that allows the individual to attend school.

Authorities emphasised the importance of the self-tests for preventing the spread of the virus in schools, noting that roughly one in three people infected by SARS-CoV-2 are asymptomatic and spread the disease without being aware of it.
