Further regulations and notes

Returning residents and new residents (care)

Residents who are transferred back from a referring facility (e.g. hospital) or who move in from their own home must undergo a protective measure. This consists of a 10-day quarantine, in which the person in question

  • eats their meals in their own room,
  • must wear a medical face mask when leaving the room,
  • undergoes testing at set intervals.
  • any care activities always take place in their room.

For persons in possession of a vaccination certificate issued to them (vaccinated persons) or convalescent certificate (convalescent persons), the protective measure is not applicable.

 

Vaccinations against the coronavirus are carried out by cooperating doctors in the respective facility for unvaccinated persons or those with only one vaccination. Vaccination is, of course, voluntary and only carried out with a declaration of consent. The vaccination is preceded by individual information talks with a doctor.

 

These regulations result from consultations of the Task Force Nursing Homes in consultation with the responsible departments in the Bavarian State Ministry of Health and Care.

Cafeterias, restaurants and bistros

The following rules apply in the gastronomic areas of MÜNCHENSTIFT residences:

  • Access is only permitted to visitors who have been vaccinated or recovered.

Children under the age of twelve and persons who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons are exempt from this rule. They can be admitted upon presentation of a written medical certificate and a negative PCR test result.

Events in retirement and care homes

Events organised by MÜNCHENSTIFT as well as events held on the premises of the respective MÜNCHENSTIFT facilities will take place in accordance with the general and extended hygiene measures of the MÜNCHENSTIFT pandemic plan.

 

External persons (relatives, volunteers) can participate in these events.

Test concept

MÜNCHENSTIFT’s Covid-19 test concept relies on rapid antigen tests for preventive testing and on PCR tests in case of suspected cases and acute outbreaks. Only tests published on the website of the Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices are used.

 

Preventive testing of asymptomatic persons

  • Visitors, volunteers and service providers who have not been vaccinated or have not recovered must be tested before entering the facility and/or taking up work.
  • Vaccinated and recovered visitors, volunteers and service providers are tested as a preventive measure before entering the facility and/or taking up work.
  • Employees who have not been vaccinated or have not recovered must be tested twice a week.
  • Vaccinated and recovered employees must be tested two to four times a week.

In the event of an outbreak in the respective facility

  • Regular and situational testing is carried out for staff and residents.

This test concept is in line with the National SARS-CoV-2 Strategy of the Federal Ministry of Health, the regulations of the current Bavarian Infection Protection Measures Ordinance of the 

Bavarian State Ministry of Health and Care as well as a municipal general decree of the Health Department of the City of Munich.
