We still have to protect ourselves
he actions that we have taken to combat the spread of COVID-19 and introduced at ŠKODA AUTO in cooperation with the KOVO Trade Union are proving effective. When employees returned to work after the Christmas holiday, there was extensive antigen testing at 13 points on 4 and 5 January. The number of positive cases was significantly lower than the national average at the time. The coronavirus pandemic situation, however, remains serious and will be solved only with the vaccine roll-out (see information on page 6 of this issue).

Get tested for free
COVID-19 can spread even when you don’t show any symptoms. The carmaker therefore continues to offer all MFA card holders the opportunity to take antigen tests for free. All you have to do is book your dates in the COVID-19 Case Records application, which is available on ŠKODA Space or in @SMART Applications.
Don’t forget about the measures
In recent weeks, there has been a rise in the number of employee violations of COVID-19-related health and safety measures. The high number of violations is particularly connected with the obligation to wear a face mask and the prohibition on smoking. The measures against the spread of the disease have been in place for many weeks and can be a bother, but please continue to follow them. Keep in mind that the consequences of COVID-19 can be tragic. Following the measures will help to protect the health of all of us.
Apart from the regular monitoring of current information on coronavirus on the ŠKODA Space homepage, it is worth downloading the COVID info card onto your phone. It will provide you with an overview of all the applicable measures in the ŠKODA AUTO plants.
