Who can be tested for COVID-19 for free?

Last update 30.06.2020

Everyone has the opportunity to be tested for Covid-19, even if they show no symptoms. 

To apply for being tested, it is mandatory to make an appointment in advance by calling 8303 on weekdays from 8:00 to 20:00, on Saturdays from 9:00 to 15:00, or on Sundays from 9:00 to 12:00. 

Getting to the testing site:

  • If a person shows no symptoms, that person is allowed to arrive to the testing point by bicycle, on foot, or by public transport, using a mask.
  • If a person shows symptoms of the disease, we suggest that the person first contacts their GP, who will advise them on the necessary treatment and refer them to be tested for Covid-19.
