FAQ: Answers to the most frequently asked questions
1. General information about the RMK-COSIMA app
Why is the RMK-COSIMA app available??
If you do not take a self-test alone at home, but at work or at school under the supervision of a trained person, you can use the result as proof afterwards – just like with the quick test at the test center. Many schools and companies already use such self-tests under supervision. Anyone who then does something after work or after school that requires a quick test (3G or 2G+ rule) does not need to take a second test, but simply shows the test result in the app. The RMK-COSIMA app was developed to document supervised self-tests and automatically forward positive results to the health department.
What is the use of the proof of a negative test result??
The four-level warning system in Baden-Wurttemberg with basic level, warning level, alert level and alert level II prescribes, depending on the level, different access authorizations for different areas of life. The following are considered access rights z. B. the 3G or the 2G+ rules. 3G means vaccinated or recovered or tested. 2G+ means vaccinated and tested, or recovered and tested. So the proof of your negative test result is your access authorization if the Corona rules require a current rapid test. With RMK-COSIMA, you always have this proof digitally conveniently with you. The idea behind this is to document the result of a supervised self-test at work or school and use it in other places as digital proof for the next 24 hours.
What the app is used for? The app can be used for self-tests under supervision at school. To be used at work. Digital proof of a negative test result in the RMK-COSIMA app can be used as a credential to access facilities that require a negative rapid test to use, as defined in Section 5 of the Corona Ordinance. The app can also be used for self-quick tests done at home, but these self-quick tests do not have an "entry ticket" function.
How do I register with the RMK-COSIMA app??
The app is available in the app stores. Install it on your smartphone and register with your email address and personal data. You will receive an access password by e-mail, which you must change after your first login. Note: In the registration mask, even for persons of legal age, there is a field for the e-mail address of a guardian. If you are of legal age, you do not need to fill in this field. Minors must also provide an e-mail address of a parent or guardian. This person must also register in RMK-COSIMA to consent to the minor's use of the app. What are the categories of Corona tests?
The test results are recorded in four steps. Only tests of levels 2, 3 and 4 are valid as evidence: this is regulated by § 5 of the Corona Ordinance for Baden-Wurttemberg.
– Stage 1: Self-test alone, without supervision (no access authorization). – Stage 2: Self-test under the supervision of a tester (access authorization for 3G and 2G+, if the test was done at work or school). – Stage 3: Rapid test by medical staff in a test center (access authorization for 3G and 2G+). – Step 4: PCR testing by medical personnel in a testing center (access authorization for 3G PCR).
What is the difference between the RMK-COSIMA app and COSAN??
COSAN is the software for testing centers where rapid tests are administered by medical professionals. RMK-COSIMA is a further development of this software, but it specifically documents and certifies rapid tests under supervision. These can also serve as proof according to § 5 of the Corona-VO. The background was a desire to provide a way to track proctored rapid tests taken in a school or business setting under supervision. Only test results in level 1 (self-test without supervision) can be submitted via the RMK-COSIMA app. Be submitted to Level 2 (self-test under supervision). Level 3 and 4 test results, i.e. from test centers, are transferred via COSAN. For this purpose the test center must be connected to COSAN.
How to ensure that the results are validly recorded?
RMK-COSIMA relies on the four-eyes principle as a matter of principle. Testers of the RMK-COSIMA-App have committed themselves to make the entries truthfully and will be held liable in case of intentionally provided false information. However, unattended self-quick tests can be entered, but these do not serve as access authorization as defined in Section 5 of the Corona Ordinance.
