– The Bern club operator is expanding with test centers throughout Switzerland
From Monday, rapid antigen tests will be charged for people without symptoms. The operator of Le Ciel takes the opportunity to expand across Switzerland with low test prices.

The time for free tests is over: From October 10th, unvaccinated people will have to pay for the smear for the certificate themselves, provided they have no symptoms. So far, the federal government has paid around 47 francs for each rapid antigen test. This compensation for the test operator will no longer apply.
It is already becoming apparent that a new business with unvaccinated people is emerging – with intense competition. This is why test centers have also been set up in the city of Bern in recent weeks, for example on the station, orphanage and casino squares.
First and foremost there is a Bernese club operator. Jan Kamarys, managing director of Le Ciel, announces that with his newly founded brand Medica Care, he will only charge 11 francs per rapid antigen test at Bollwerk. The competition usually demands between 30 and 50 francs.
