Concerning Covid-19 the danger is not averted, on the contrary: The number of corona cases is increasing everywhere in Germany, and more and more people are becoming infected again these days and weeks. Protective measures are and will therefore remain indispensable not only for ethical reasons but also because our employees are our capital that we want to protect from dangers.
As a result, at cronologic, we have taken strict measures right from the start of this pandemic to minimize the risk of infection for our employees. We installed air filters, and provide masks since last year. For three months now, we have also been able to offer free Covid 19 rapid test kits internally. We can easily avoid contamination by letting our employees decide for themselves whether they want to work from home or in the office. Almost all of us have been working from home since summer 2020. Whenever the stationary test equipment from our headquarters or other facilities is needed, the relevant employees reserve the premises in an online calendar so that they can work on their own.
Even if we would actually like to be closer to each other, thanks to our rather friendly working atmosphere, we manage to maintain the shared enthusiasm for our work via video conferences. Of course, we hope to do our work again under normal conditions. But we are also proud to play an active role in bringing the pandemic under control as much as possible - with our own activities and with our products, which have proven to have the potential to advance medical research.
