Coronavirus testing

If you have mild symptoms of a virus infection or suspect that you have been infected with coronavirus, you can take a home test (antigen home test).

You can book an appointment for a coronavirus test in health care services if you have symptoms suitable for a coronavirus infection and:

  • a health care professional has recommended a test or
  • you are in a risk group for severe COVID-19 disease, or
  • you are pregnant or
  • you work in social welfare and health care in client and patient work, or
  • you work in any task in 24-hour care or disability services.

In addition, we recommend that employees at fur farms that raise minks and raccoon dogs take a coronavirus test if they have fitting symptoms or have been exposed to the coronavirus.

Health care services do not provide coronavirus tests if you have had the coronavirus less than 3 months before the symptoms began.

How to book an appointment

If you need a coronavirus test taken by healthcare services, fill in the coronavirus symptom checker in the Omaolo service.

  • After filling in the symptom checker, you can either book an appointment directly online or you will receive instructions to wait for a professional to contact you.
  • In Omaolo, a guardian can also book an appointment for a child under the age of 15.

If you do not have access to the Internet, call your local health station. Always make an appointment for getting a coronavirus test.

Coronavirus tests can be taken at Siun sote health stations. Always make an appointment for the test. No coronavirus sampling is done on Sundays.
