The Schauburg becomes a rapid test castle. The cinema on Koenigsbrücker Strasse opens its foyer and a cinema hall for antigen tests. The classic throat swab is taken through the nose in three test cabins. For this, the 19 employees have all received training at the DRK. The inclined moviegoer will probably recognize them, they used to sell popcorn and tickets here.
It opened this morning and as tester Maik Schultz reports, around 50 people were there by noon. It is open daily from 9 a.m., on workdays until 8 p.m., Saturdays until 7 p.m. and Sundays until 6 p.m. At the moment you can come by spontaneously. Schauburg boss Stefan Ostertag: “If the rush gets too big, we think about a booking system.”
He decided to convert the cinema into a temporary test center in order to have some perspective. “Perhaps we will also help to ensure that we can reopen our cinema soon.” You can then wait for the result in the Fritz-Lang-Saal or in the fresh air or register using the Dresden pass4all app and get the result then send it to you.
The Königsbrücker is now developing into a test mile, right next door in the escape room “The Mission” is being tested and a few doors down in the East Pole.
Saliva tests in front of the barn
Another rapid test center will open in front of the barn on Friday. “We offer the test here, so to speak, in passing,” says Marvin Heinemann from Palais Palett eV Marvin has already helped to organize the gurgling tests in the property klein a on the industrial site. Now, with the support of Corona Freepass from Hamburg, they have now set up this rapid test station on the barn forecourt.
“The health department was already there and accepted everything,” says Marvin and shows the small cups. Those willing to test then have to spit into these. It is analyzed on site and the result is sent via SMS. An app is also being planned here. Until then, the test date will be booked on the website. “You can also do that on site with your smartphone,” says Marvin. It is open Monday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., Tuesday to Thursday 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays until 8 p.m., Saturdays until 7 p.m. and Sundays until 6 p.m. If the demand changes, the organizers want to react.
