We take all necessary measures to protect our customers, business partners and employees against Coronavirus. From now on, the 2G rule applies to all external visitors until further notice. This means:
Vaccinated: Proof of complete vaccination protection must be presented (vaccination certificate on smartphone (Corona-WarnApp or CovPassApp)). At least 14 days must have passed since the last required vaccination. For visitors whose last vaccination was more than 6 months ago, the 2G+ rule applies (Vaccinated plus additional rapid antigen test, max. 24 hours old).
Recovered: Proof of a positive PCR test (Corona-WarnApp or CovPassApp) at least 28 days and max. 6 months old is required.
In general, the following still applies: if you show any symptoms of a possible Covid-19 infection like shortness of breath, cough, fever, loss of smell or taste, please postpone your visit until you feel better or send another person from your organization to the appointment. Our reception will check the appropriate certificate / document when you will arrive for your visit.
We overcome every obstacle and move even mountains just to reach our aim, which is to keep your wafers clean! Because wet process technology is our passion.
