The large scale testing strategy is formulated by a task force. Essentially done in three stages

  • Stage 1: a representative population of a contingent is tested. The results of these tests give an indication of when the contingent can be freed from restrictions and when it should be tested on a large scale
  • Stage 2: All persons in the contingent are invited to be tested on a voluntary basis.
  • Stage 3: A representative group is selected shortly after the exit measures in order to be tested a second time. This allows monitoring of whether and how the virus is spreading within the contingent.
